The Delhi Police arrested four bookies during the Asia Cup final between India and Bangladesh on Friday, 28 September. India beat Bangladesh by three wickets in a last-ball thriller in Dubai.

The police found eight mobile phones and one laptop, which were used for betting during the match, reported ANI.

India were chasing a modest target of 223 at Dubai International Stadium, after winning the toss and inviting Bangladesh to bat first.

Despite their batting prowess and wealth of experience, India almost failed to reach that target as the tension reached a breaking point.

It was left to a limping Kedar Jadhav to face the final ball with the scores level. He tried to flick it down to the fine leg boundary and failed to do so, but India got a single leg bye and did just enough.

Rohit Sharma top scored for India with 48 runs and Kuldeep Yadav returned with figures of 3/45.
