Fans have witnessed a nail-biting contest as India and Sri Lanka met in their second match of the Asia Cup 2022 Super 4 stage. Dasun Shanaka's men thrashed India away, as they on the verge of going home, with minor exceptions left.
India now heavily rely on Pakistan's loss against Afghanistan on September 7th, and the chances will further be polished if they themselves overpower Afghanistan on September 8th. Sri Lanka have almost booked the slot in Asia Cup 2022 final. In case the men in green beat Mohammad Nabi's men on Wednesday, both Pakistan and Sri Lanka will be in the final.
The toss fell in Sri Lanka's favour, and they made full use of it, choosing to bowl. They conceded 173 runs and managed eight wickets. Shanaka's openers put a good start adding brilliant 50s. On the fall of four scalps, they reached the feat of sparing a ball with the courtesy of the skipper's 33 off 18 and Bhanuka Rajapaksa's 25 from 17 balls.
India once again lost in the same manner as they did against Pakistan. The game was dragged to the last over with Arshdeep Singh bowling in a pressure situation. Needing two from two, both matches were finished with two runs from the second last ball, letting Indian opposition cheer in delight.
