Thank you for following the action with us throughout the tournament. What a finale. What an event.
11.45pm - India need 6 off 6
Bangladesh have almost found a wicket when they needed it and they have done it again. Bhuvneshwar Kumar edges a Mustafizur Rahman ball to Mushfiqur Rahim to go for 21.
Given their 222 looked well below par at one stage, this has been a tremendous effort from Bangladesh.
India are now hanging their hopes on the injured Kedar Jadhav to try and see them home. But he cannot find the singles, or does not want them with his injured hamstring.
India on 215-7, needing 223 to win.
11.40pm - India need 9 off 12
The target continues to come down but India are six down with Ravindra Jadeja out for 20, caught behind off Rubel Hossain on a review.
That brings the injured Kedar Jadhav back out and he and Bhuvneshwar Kumar keep the scoreboard ticking.
India are 214-6, needing 223 to win.
11.35pm - India need 13 off 18
Almost a brilliant over for Bangladesh. Almost. Mustafizur Rahman concedes only one run of his first five balls.
But Bhuvneshwar Kumar strikes the final ball off his legs to the boundary to keep India in charge.
Bangladesh need wickets and quickly.
India are 210-5 chasing 223.
11.25pm - India need 18 off 24
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is in the India team for his bowling, but the six he has just hit of Rubel Hossain is as good as you will ever see in a pressure situation.
It lifts the tension off India and has given he and Ravindra Jadeja (20 not out) breathing space.
India are 205-5 chasing 223.
11.15pm - Tension builds
India need 36 more of 42 balls on 187-5. Ravindra Jadeja (15) looks as if he will be the key man to guiding India home.
Bangladesh are doing what they can by keeping things tight, but realistically they must bowl out their opponents to win this.
10.50pm - Jadhav retires hurt
Just to complicate things further for India Kedar Jadhav has retired hurt. He was struggling with a hamstring injury and India clearly have decided to give him some recovery time, if he needs to bat again, by bringing him in.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is now in with Ravindra Jadeja and India need 56 to win off 68 balls.
India 167-5 chasing 223 to win.
10.45pm - Dhoni is the fifth man to go
Bangladesh just will not give up. MS Dhoni had looked assured and calm at the crease, but he edges Mustafique Rahman to Mushfiqur Rahim behind the stumps for 36 and India's lower middle order is exposed.
Add in that Kedar Jadhav appears to be struggling with a hamstring problem and India are on the ropes.
India are 167-5 chasing 223 and need 56 off 72 balls to win. It is going to be close
Dhoni gone. Game on. 63 to get, five wickets left. Asia Cup > most things #AsiaCup
Bangladesh will know if they are to have any chance of winning they need to get rid of one of India captain Rohit Sharma or Shikhar Dhawan quickly.
The openers can take the game away from an opponent quickly. Just ask Pakistan.
Mehidy Hasan, who is the first Bangladesh player in an ODI to open the batting and bowling in the same match, has a boundary hit off him by both openers and 10-0 after the first over is not the start Bangladesh would have wanted India to have.
10-0 with another 213 needed in 49 overs
7.40pm - India's game to lose
Given they chased 237 at a canter against Pakistan in Dubai, India will be confident the Asia Cup is coming home with them as they prepare to start their chase of 223 after bowling out Bangladesh for 222.
It has been a fun day in Dubai for fans of both sides though and here are some of the best fans pictures taken by The National's Pawan Singh.
7pm - Bangladesh all out for 222
A good knock of 33 off 45 from Soumya Sarkar is over as he becomes the third run-out victim of the innings for Bangladesh.
Two balls later and the innings is over as Rubel Hossain is bowled by Jusprit Bumrah.
Having been facing 120-0 after 20 overs, to be chasing 223 will delight India.
Their batsmen still have a lot of work to do but the bowlers have made this a lot more manageable then it looked at one stage.
6.50pm - Bangladesh eight down
Bit of a bizarre wicket that. Nazmul Islam was trapped in front of the stumps off Jasprit Bumrah. He was not out, according to the umpire at least, but he was out of his ground following the delivery and he is run out.
Bangladesh seem content to just nick singles and twos to try and accumulate a total to defend, with the occasional lusty blow coming from Soumya Sarkar.
He is 31 not out and his mission is to try and move 213-8 in the final three overs to close to 250.
Four down and Bangladesh are in real trouble as Mohammad Mithun is run out for just two.
But, Liton Das continues to hold the innings together and he has just reached his maiden ODI hundred, the achievement coming off 87 balls.
He has scored 100 of his side's 145-4 at present and he needs to bat the 50 overs now to give his side a chance of setting India a tough score.
You have to think anything shy of 250 will be too few on this Dubai wicket.
5.20pm - Bangladesh wobbling
Bangladesh are in serious danger of undoing their good work.
From 120-0 they have slipped to 137-3, and the pressure is now falling on Liton Das (95 not out) to not only get his hundred, but bat on and hold the innings together.
Mushfiqur Rahim is the latest man to go, caught for five at midweek to give Kedar Jadhav his second wicket. It was a risky shot to be playing, and with his partner at the other end well set not good shot judgement at all.
5.10pm - Two down for Bangladesh
As so often happens in cricket, having waited for almost 90 minutes to bat, Imrul Keyes lasts just 12 balls before he is trapped leg before by Yuzvendra Chalal for just two.
Bangladesh still have Liton Das (91 not out) closing in on his first hundred, but they are in danger of letting slip a strong start.
Bangladesh 128-2 after 24 overs.
5pm - India have the breakthrough
The opening wicket is finally broken at 120-1. It is Mehidy Hasan who goes as he caught off Kedar Jadhav for 32.
But with Liton Das still flying on 88 not out at the other end, Bangladesh are still look good.
We are less then three hours away from the start of the final.
It is fair to say Bangladesh have got better as the tournament have gone on.
But having beaten Afghanistan on Sunday and Pakistan on Wednesday to set up the final with India, Mushfiqur Rahim is confident his side can raise their game even further to win the title.
“We still haven’t played our best cricket yet," said the wicketkeeper-batsman. That’s what I feel." You can read the full piece here.
11.40am - Bangladesh making progress
Bangladesh have been the surprise package of the tournament. They have recovered from losing to Afghanistan in the group stages and then heavily to India in the their first Super Four match.
They bounced back with two big wins in Abu Dhabi. A tense win over Afghanistan and then they held their nerve to deservedly beat Pakistan on Wednesday to clinch a place in the final.
Their form has not gone unnoticed and Shikhar Dhawan, the India opener, said there was no danger that he or his teammates would take Bangladesh lightly in today's final. You can read Dhawan's full thoughts here.
