Speaking at a pre-match press conference, the Sri Lanka captain said that the Men In Blue had a great game against Pakistan, despite ending on the losing side, and they have been playing very good cricket as of late.

“They (India) had a great game last night. They have been playing good cricket and will be prepared. I do not think they will be under any pressure,” said Shanaka in a pre-match press conference.

While talking about strategies of Sri Lanka heading into the crucial encounter against India, Dasun Shanaka said:

“Our strategy is mainly about batting, having long partnerships at the top of the order. If we end up having that, we will have a better chance of winning the game.”

India National Cricket Team’s bowling unit has not been very impressive in the Asia Cup 2022 in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Harshal Patel. However, the Sri Lanka captain believes that the Indian bowling unit led by the veteran pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar is not at all inexperienced. He said:

“I do not think so (that they are inexperienced). They are a proper bowling attack. They have played a lot of IPL and have a lot of experience.”

Former India National Cricket Team skipper Kohli, who has found his mojo back after a prolonged lean patch, has looked in fine touch in the ongoing Asia Cup. He is currently the highest run-getter in the Asia Cup 2022 with 154 runs under his belt at an average of 77 and a strike rate of 126.22.
