India got off to an explosive start in this year’s Asia Cup but failed to convert it into big totals. There is pressure on Rohit-Rahul openers even today. Former captain Virat Kohli is in bombastic form and should contribute the same to the team. Hardik Pandya’s performance in the last match was very poor. So he has to return to form.
Suryakumar Yadav does not seem to have a consistent performance. Rishabh Pant was also trolled for playing poorly against Pakistan. Therefore, it should not be surprising if Dinesh Karthik replaces him. Team India bowlers failed to perform as expected in the match against Pakistan.
The absence of all-rounder Jadeja has caused a lot of trouble for the team. Chahal is not doing well. Thus, there is a lot of pressure on Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep and Bishnoi. Ashwin may appear in the playing XI instead of Chahal.
Sri Lankan team is strong in batting. But, the bowlers are failing. Lankan bowlers have not charmed in the entire Asia Cup 2022 tournament. Danushka Gunathilak, Pathum Nisanka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Kusal Mendis are in great form. If the bowlers also support him, this match will be tough for India.
