Pakistan and Sri Lanka are now facing each other in the Asia Cup final. Both the teams have gone through ups and downs in the tournament and are now in the finals. In this situation, there is no other way for both teams to play well. Both the teams are desperate to get into this match to correct the mistakes of the last match. Babar Azam’s biggest concern is batting.
The team gets runs in the power play but then falters. Pakistan’s history with the Asia Cup is also not very good. Pakistan has come close to losing the Asia Cup several times. They won the Asia Cup for the first time in 2000. Then it took 12 years to win the second time. This time they want to finish well even though they started badly.
Asia Cup 2022 Final Match:
Pakistan vs Sri Lanka is the most friendly match ever. Both teams have stood by each other in their bad times in the past. It is maintained in the field as well. The fans of both teams are also calm in this match. Sri Lanka started the campaign with a big loss, from where no one thought they would reach the final. Sri Lanka gave their best in the last match of Super Four. Which is enough to put Pakistan to sleep before the final. Especially when the real picture of Pakistan’s middle order has come out. Sri Lanka’s measured bowling made it possible.
The most important thing for Pakistan to win is to stay at the crease. Mohammad Rizwan alone pulls the team. If he is out, there is no one left to lead the team. That is causing problems for Pakistan. And toast is also important. Because there is very little precedent for winning by chasing runs in Dubai. The pitch will remain the same. There will not be much change from the last Super Four match.
