India and Sri Lanka will play in a Super-4 match at the Asia Cup today. The stakes are high and India must win the game. The result of the match is decided by a succession of mini-battles in addition to the main action.
Sri Lanka is in dangerous form and has pursued two totals of 170+ runs. India is making an effort to regroup after losing the game against Pakistan with the ball in hand. Hardik Pandya, Wanindu Hasranga, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, and Virat Kohli will all be striving to provide outstanding performances. Here are the top 5 players to watch in today’s Asia Cup 2022 encounter between India and Sri Lanka.
In three games for India at the Asia Cup, Kohli scored 154 runs. He appears to be in excellent shape and has two consecutive 50s. The aggressiveness of right-handed batters has increased recently, especially when they are up against spinners. With a strike rate of above 60 against leg spinners, Kohli will try to establish early dominance against the Lankan leggie.
On the other hand, Hasaranga has an exceptional record against right-handed batsmen, having claimed more than 80 of the 120 wickets against them. Because of the Lankan leg-deft spinner’s variations, Kohli must be cautious in the opening few overs. These two players have only faced off against one another in a T20 international.
Against Afghanistan, Sri Lanka’s powerful batter Rajapaksa got back to his usual self. By scoring 31 runs on just 14 balls, the southpaw completely changed the dynamic of the match. He may start playing cricket from the first ball since he lacks fear. This Sri Lankan batter must be watched because he can alter the course of a match on his own.
Suryakumar Yadav (SKY), an Indian batter, is not hesitant to confront challenges head-on. He can instantly alter the momentum of a match. Yadav crushed Hong Kong by hitting them for 50 runs. He can spin well. Next, Yadav will take on Lanka’s skilled spinners. He keeps everything tight and has many variants.
