India vs Malaysia Prediction
Malaysia will look to continue their impressive run in the Asian Champions Trophy, having reached the final for the first time. They finished in the third spot multiple times but failed to reach the summit clash in their previous five attempts.
India were the joint champions in the 2018 edition but made a semifinal exit in the last edition. The three-time champions will look to grab the trophy once again when they take on Malaysia. Harmanpreet Singh is expected to lead the Indian attack, while Shello Silverius and Firhan Ashari will hold the key for the finalist.
Match Prediction: India to win in the final against Malaysia in the Asian Champions Trophy 2023.
