Asia Cup has a rich history dating back a long time. The first edition of the tournament happened in 1984, just a year after India won its first ODI World Cup in 1983. The emergence of teams like Pakistan and Sri Lanka led to the formation of the tournament. Later, more teams like Bangladesh and Afghanistan became active participants in the tournament. A tournament that has a history of about 39 years, has witnessed a lot of crazy moments. Likewise, some of the matches were so close and thrilling that the fans could not forget them. Some of them were pure quality, and other matches had a lot of thrill and drama involved. So,
It happened in the 2018 Asia Cup in Dubai. On a tricky wicket to bat on, Afghanistan batted first and managed to score 252 runs in their 50 overs for the loss of 8 wickets. Mohammad Shahzad was the best performer for Afghanistan, who scored 124 runs in 116 balls. The Indian top 3 batters laid a good platform for the chase. KL Rahul and Ambati Rayudu scored fifties. But a collapse in the middle overs phase led to a thrilling tie between the two teams. It is the only tied match in the history of the Asia Cup.
