India will lock horns with Dasun Shanaka-led Sri Lanka in their second game in the Super Four round of the Asia Cup 2022 edition, in the UAE, on Tuesday evening (September 06). The clash holds a lot of significance for India after they lost to Babar Azam-led Pakistan, by five wickets, in their Super Four opener on Sunday (September 04) at the iconic Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai.
Being asked to bat first versus their arch-rivals Pakistan, Rohit Sharma-led India rode on Virat Kohli’s 44-ball 60 and vital knocks from KL Rahul-Rohit, some lusty blows from Deepak Hooda and Ravi Bishnoi to post a competitive 181/7 in 20 overs. In reply, Indian bowlers couldn’t defend their total and lost on the penultimate ball of the contest. With this defeat, India are now in a must-win situation and have to win both their games to prevent a shocking exit from the continental tournament. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, are coming into this encounter on the back of a stunning four-wicket win over Afghanistan and another win bring them closer to a place in the final.
