"With the Asia Cup triumph, team India have proved their dominance in the shortest format of the game and emerged as the best T20 side in Asia. I extend my hearty congratulations to the team on their convincing win over Bangladesh in the final. With India set to host the ICC World T20, this win is a step in the right direction," BCCI President Shashank Manohar said in a release.
BCCI Secretary Anurag Thakur said, "I congratulate team India on winning the Asia Cup title for the sixth time. India have performed brilliantly in the tournament that saw a change in the format for the first time."
"India's remarkable run in the T20Is that started from the 3-0 series win on Australian soil, followed by the 2-1 win over Sri Lanka at home puts India in just the right space ahead of the ICC World T20," Thakur added.
