ban vs Sl Asia Cup 2022 Asia Cup 2022 Today Match Pitch Report

Sri Lanka and Bangladesh square off in the fifth and decisive match of the 2022 Asia Cup in Dubai on Thursday, September 1.

When the two teams faced off, Sri Lanka’s season-opening game was lost to Afghanistan, while Bangladesh was defeated by Afghanistan.

Afghanistan also created history by being the first team to make it to the Super 4 round. Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh make up Group B.

Group A includes India, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Bangladesh lost an ODI and a T20I series before this series against Zimbabwe. They already won an ODI series against Afghanistan in February and March of this year, and they tied them in a T20I series.

During the group stage, each team will play some other sides in their group once. To reach the final four, the top two teams from each group must finish first.

During the super 4 round, each team will face off against the other in one match. The top two teams progress to the September 11 final game. In the meanwhile, we’ll take a look at Bangladesh’s likely starting lineup in this piece for their game against Sri Lanka.

Under The Spotlight

Kusal Mendis had lately been in good Test-match form, which he extended to the shortest format by dominating Sri Lanka’s primary T20 domestic event this year, soon before departing for the Asia Cup.

In this series, he appears to have been sent up the order to start the batting. Although his T20I stats are typically unimpressive, he prefers this position, striking at 137 when he begins and averaging 32. (career numbers are 121 and 20). He is auditioning for this job in the October T20 World Cup.

Over the last year, Mahedi Hasan has been one of Bangladesh’s few consistent T20 players. He has the highest economy rate among bowlers who have played at least 25 innings in international cricket, proving that orthodox off spin can still be effective.

Despite his strict orthodoxy, he occasionally utilizes side-arm deliveries. Mahedi is also a capable hitter who might slot in as the starter.

The Situation Of Teams- 

Despite the crushing defeat to Afghanistan, Sri Lanka may field the same lineup. However, they may contemplate inserting the in-form Ashen Bandara into the middle order, maybe in place of Danushka Gunathilaka.

Alternatively, they may leave Pathum Nissanka out and promote Gunathilaka back to the top of the hierarchy. When Afghanistan defeated Sri Lanka by 8 wickets in the first game, Sri Lanka was completely destroyed.

The opposition’s batsmen took just 105 off the batters, which they chased down in 11 overs. They were let down by their batters in their first game, and now it’s up to them to save them.

The game will be played on a larger field in Dubai. To include their bowlers in the match, the batsmen must score between 160 and 170 runs. The team really must win this game. Their Asia Cup campaign would be over if they lost to Bangladesh.

Bangladesh is in a batting predicament, which may force them to reshuffle their opening tandem once more. Mushfiqur Rahim was mentioned as one of those possibilities, albeit he would have to consent to this odd post.

Bangladesh may also reconsider their bowling assault. Shakib Al Hasan will serve as the team’s leader. He is being scrutinized for not representing the team with consistent cricket.

Shakib was not the team’s captain in the two bilateral series against Afghanistan and Zimbabwe that the team lost this year. He has been selected to lead the team in the Asia Cup and T20 World Cup.

Shakib is eager to take the team’s helm throughout this competition and in the lead-up to the T20 World Cup.

Weather And Pitch

The match looks to be played on a previously used surface, implying that it may be a little more spin-friendly than prior tournament tracks. Temperatures will be hot even in the evening, possibly reaching the low 30s Celsius.
