Hot Spot - Asia Cup 2014 - Pakistan v Sri Lanka Final Preview

John Pennington and Chetan Narula look ahead to the final of the Asia Cup 2014 and review the final three group games.

They look back on the matches between Bangladesh and Pakistan and then Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, both of which saw the hosts going well before ending up on the losing side.

However, it is the game between India and Afghanistan (won comfortably) by India which really gets Chetan animated as he talks about wider issues with Indian cricket with Ishwar Pandey and Cheteshwar Pujara not playing in this match.

He says he is 'astounded' by what is going on - and that after another of our correspondents called the current situation 'pathetic'.

They move on to also discuss tomorrow's final and make their predictions.
