Who are these Super Fans? These so called Super Fans, who are well known among the cricketing circles are representing the countries participating at this year's Asia Cup. Here are their names from left to right - Mohammed Nilam (Sri Lanka), Bashir Chacha (Pakistan), Suhir Gautam (India), Gayan Senanayaka (Sri Lanka). 

These super fans are known to be very close to each other. Recently, Sudhir's Pakistani counterpart, Bashir Chacha helped him by providing him stay at accommodation in UAE so that Sudhir could come down and cheer for the Men in Blue at the 2018 Asia Cup.

Speaking of his grand gesture, Bashir Chacha told www.xtratime.in from the UAE: "It's pure love. You know money will come and go with Allah's grace. I told Sudhir you just come here and I will take care of everything. I am not a rich person but my heart is as big as an ocean. If I help you, Allah will be happy,"

Rohit Sharma is also said to be a fervent admirer of these Super Fans. Earlier, when Senanayaka had come to India when Sri Lanka were touring India, if reports are to believed, the Indian run-machhine is said to have sponsored the tickets of Senanayaka, who had to rush back home after he figured the news that his father was diagnosed with throat cancer. 

Meanwhile, India will be aiming to reassert their continental supremacy while an injury-hit Bangladesh will hope to shrug off stage fright when the two sides square off in the grand finale of the 2018 Asia Cup.

The Bangla Tigers, who have a penchant for being 'party poopers', stunned Pakistan in their penultimate fixture to erase the prospect of an another India Pakistan clash. And now they will be hoping to spring another surprise when they face India on Friday.
