Asia Cup 2022: IND vs SL Pitch Report And Weather Forecast Of Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Super 4, Match 3 (A1 vs B1). Sri Lanka will take on India on September 6 in the super 4 stages. Both teams have fought very hard to get to this position. India has proved that they are still the best performing team in international tournaments by beating their arch-rival Pakistan in their first match.

Then they got qualified into the super 4 stages after defeating Hong Kong and now they have come to the most crucial stage where they should give their best to move up to the finals.

On the other hand, the Sri Lankan team began their match with a loss to the mighty Afghanistan team but somehow they managed to get into the super 4 stages by defeating Bangladesh. Still, they have a lot of work to do if they want to beat India in the Super 4 stages.

Sri Lanka pulled off a major upset, beating Afghanistan by 4 wickets in the Super 4 opener. With that, Dasun Shanaka-led Sri Lanka also avenged their humiliating loss in the Asia Cup 2022 opener. Rahmanullah Gurbaz helped Afghanistan post 175/5 but impactful innings from Kusal Mendis, Danushka Gunathilaka and Bhanuka Rajapaksa helped them chase the target with 5 balls to spare.

Kusal Mendis smashed 19-ball 36 to set the tone of the match. After the 62-run opening stand, Sri Lanka never had a great partnership but there were small impactful performances throughout. Pathum Nissanka (35 off 28), Dannushka Gunathilaka (33 off 20) and Bhanuka Rajapaksa (31 off 14) besides Wanindu Hasaranga (16 off 9) all contributed well.

Brief Scores: Afghanistan: 175 for 6 in 20 overs (Rahmanullah Gurbaz 84, Ibrahim Zadran 40; Dilshan Madushanka 2/37). lost to Sri Lanka: 179 for 6 in 19.1 overs (Kusal Mendis 36, Pathum Nissanka 35, Danushka Gunathilaka 33; Mujeeb Ur Rahman 2/30, Naveen-ul-Haq 2/40).

India has suffered a huge blow in the ongoing Asia Cup 2022 as their star spin bowling all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out due to a knee injury. The same knee injury which has been haunting him for the past 2 years has resurfaced again. India doesn’t have 3 of their first-choice players at the moment, namely, Jasprit Bumrah, Harshal Patel, and Ravindra Jadeja.

Axar Patel is the most obvious replacement option because of his skill set. He also perfectly fills the void left by Ravindra Jadeja both with the bat and the ball. Deepak Hooda can be another option for India to replace Ravindra Jadeja in the Asia Cup 2022 team. The dynamic middle-order batsman has been given a long rope on the Indian side and he has grabbed all the opportunities that had been given to him with both hands.

After Ravindra Jadeja was ruled out of the Asia Cup 2022 tournament, the Rohit Sharma-led side suffered another blow as pacer Avesh Khan also missed the clash against Pakistan. The right-arm pacer reportedly was suffering from viral fever for the last 2 days and he was deemed unfit by the medical team to play India’s game against Pakistan.

Few media reports have suggested that if Avesh Khan fails to recover in time, Deepak Chahar will be added to India’s squad.  Sri Lanka is expected to retain their playing XI that played against Afghanistan while India may bring in the likes of Ravichandran Ashwin, Deepak Hooda, or Axar Patel in their next game against Sri Lanka in Asia Cup 2022. India played Deepak Hooda and Ravi Bishnoi in their first Super 4 game against Pakistan.

Mohammad Nawaz stunned India with the bat after helping restrict them with the ball after a rampant start to give Pakistan a thrilling win in their Asia Cup 2022 Super 4 match against India. A week after India chased successfully in a thrilling group-stage finish, Pakistan returned the favour, asking India to bat and getting home with just one ball to spare.

Mohammad Rizwan anchored the chase with 71 off 51, but it was Mohammad Nawaz who provided the desperately needed impetus. Promoted to No. 4, he smashed 42 off 20 balls to put Pakistan back on track as India’s Virat Kohli’s 44 balls 60 went in vain.

Asia Cup 2022: Pakistan 182 for 5 (Rizwan 71, Nawaz 42) beat India 181 for 7 (Kohli 60, Rahul 28, Rohit 28, Shadab 2-31) by five wickets
