Hot Spot - Asia Cup 2014 - Sri Lanka Impress, India Struggle - Cricket World TV

John Pennington and Chetan Narula look back at the start of the Asia Cup 2014, assessing Sri Lanka's strong performances, Afghanistan's emergence and India's struggles.

They also reflect on Pakistan's incredible one-wicket win over India which saw Shahid Afridi blast two late sixes to leave India with a mountain climb to reach Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka will play in the final this weekend after their latest win over Afghanistan, who had won their previous game against Bangladesh.

Chetan talks about how over-reliant he thinks India are on Virat Kohli (and MS Dhoni) while the pair also talk about whether Bangladesh have a problem with their strength in depth.

And they answer a viewer's query about whether Robin Uthappa should be given another go for India.
