Sri Lanka & Pakistan are going to clash in the Asia Cup 2022 Final on Sunday (11th September). Both the teams have played some fantastic Cricket and it won’t be wrong to say that they are the deserving teams. Sri Lankan Cricket Team in particular has been ruthless as no one had expected them to make it to the finals after the drubbing which they received against Afghanistan in the first round.

The spinners and especially Wanindu Hasaranga have been pivotal to the team’s success as his google deliveries have been defining moments of the match.

Pakistan Cricket Team has had a mixed bag as in the first round they got beaten up by India. The Men in Green then made a resounding comeback by defeating Men in Blue which lightened up their Asia Cup. Pakistan would be wary that they had a close finish with Afghanistan and the recent defeat against Sri Lanka has raised a lot of question marks over their approach.

Dasun Shanaka, the skipper has shown good hitting prowess and he may promote himself up the order to up the ante. It would be quite fascinating to see Sri Lanka’s approach which has been fearless as their batters are always ready to pounce on an opportunity.

Pakistan Cricket Team once again is too much dependent on their top order. They need someone like Iftikhar to play smart cricket and make sure that he is holding one end. There is no doubt that Pakistan’s batting lineup has got big pinch hitters but they need stability in the middle to get a big total or hunt down a target.

The Asia Cup 2022 Final promises to be a thrilling contest as both the teams are evenly matched and it won’t be wrong to say that Sri Lanka has a slight edge over Pakistan.
