Sri Lankan Cricket Team registered a thumping victory over Pakistan in the Super 4 Stage. The Island Nation would be pumped up as they gave Pakistan Cricket Team a reality check ahead of the Final.

Sri Lanka Skipper Dasun Shanaka would be astonished to see a dashing comeback as earlier in the 1st round, Afghanistan had defeated them by a huge margin. The skipper knows that winning Asia Cup 2022 will give them a huge boost ahead of the marquee ICC T20 World Cup 2022.

Pakistan Cricket Team would be in shock as none of the batters showed intent. The batters were outdone by the trio of Hasaranga, Theekshana & Dhananjay de Silva. All these 3 spinners dried the runs and made sure that the batters aren’t rotating the strike. Hasaranga is getting better day by day as his googly deliveries are proving to be defining moments of the match.

Dasun Shanaka on Sri Lankan Cricket Team

Skipper Dasun Shanaka was all praiseworthy for his side in the post-match presentation.

Always acceptable these kinds of results. The combination we have with the left arm fast bowlers, the leg spinners- the variation we have is amazing,” Shanaka said.

I think the extras were a concern in this game, and the lines the fast bowlers bowled. These are areas we can improve, if we could get early wickets in the next game that will be good,” he added

Sri Lankan Cricket Team on a Roll

Sri Lanka had come into the tourney as under-dogs as the major focus was on India & Pakistan. The Island nation had suffered a heart attack when Afghanistan had buried them alive. Sri Lanka had nervy chases throughout the Asia Cup but they never hit the panic button. The Head Coach Chris Silverwood would be happy as slowly the team is getting back to its best.

Sri Lanka would be wary that one loss can spoil all of their hard work. The Sri Lanka team’s ultra-aggressive approach has been quite fruitful.

The final is extremely vital for the team which will give them a clear-cut idea of playing 11 ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. They are going to play T20 World Cup Qualifiers in Australia ahead of the marquee event. They have to go through this stern test which won’t be easy by any means.
