As the Asia Cup 2022 nears its business end, the finalists Sri Lanka and Pakistan will lock horns in the last Super stage game in Dubai. Both teams have remained undefeated in the second stage of the tournament. So before the Grand finale, this will be good practice for both teams.
Sri Lanka has emerged as one of the biggest surprises in the tournament as they defeated in-form teams like India and Afghanistan to make their way into the finals of the tournament. Sri Lanka’s batting has been their biggest strength through the tournament as they have chased down 170+ targets thrice. In the bowling department, Dilshan Madushanka has been their go-to option as he picked up six wickets in four games.
Whereas Pakistan has emerged as the best team in the tournament after their thrilling victory over Afghanistan. Despite major injuries at the start of the tournament, the Pakistanis have created a dominant playing XI with quality across the playing XI. The team’s bowling attack is shouldered by Naseem Shah and Harris Rauf who have been playing at an incredible level.
Similarly, their batting is solid with wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan leading the charge as he has been the second-highest run-scorer in the tournament.
