0

After
winning
the
toss
at
the
Dubai
International
Stadium,
Pakistan
skipper
Babar
Azam
elected
to
bowl
first
against
Sri
Lanka.

Electing
to
field
first,
Pak
skipper
Azam
said,
“We’ll
bowl
first.
Our
confidence
is
high.
Your
dream
is
to
come
to
the
final
and
win
it.
We
will
give
out
100%.
We
are
happy
with
the
way
we
played
in
this
tournament.
Every
match
we
had
a
new
man
of
the
match,
everyone
stepped
up.
No
injuries.
Shadab
and
Naseem
back
for
Usman
and
Hasan.”

Meanwhile,
Lanka
skipper
Dasun
Shanaka
said,
“We
would
have
bowled
first
as
well,
but
since
it’s
a
final,
happy
to
bat
first
as
well.
We’re
playing
some
good
cricket
so
we’re
looking
forward
to
continuing
that
in
this
match
as
well.
The
batsman
stood
up
in
this
tournament,
especially
openers.
Madushanka
and
Maheesh
have
been
great
too.
This
will
be
a
very
good
sign
in
the
World
Cup.
The
record
has
been
really
good
and
we’re
looking
for
another
championship
tonight.
Same
team.”

Sri
Lanka
and
Pakistan
both
began
the
tournament
with
losses.
While
Lanka
fell
to
a
crushing
loss
to
Afghanistan,
Pakistan
lost
to
arch-rivals
India
in
the
opener.
But
the
two
sides
thereon,
turned
it
around
and
secured
their
place
in
the
final
with
two
wins
on
the
trot.
In
their
final
match
of
the
Super
4,
which
was
a
dead
rubber,
but
more
of
a
preview
to
the
final,
Sri
Lanka
handed
Pakistan
a
five-wicket
win.

Though
Dasun
Shanaka’s
men
will
head
into
the
final
a
more
confident
loss
having
defeated
Babar
Azam-led
Pakistan
on
Friday,
the
match
promises
to
be
a
thrilling
encounter.

With
five
titles
to
their
name,
Sri
Lanka
are
the
second-most
successful
team
in
the
Asia
Cup
after
India,
who
have
won
the
Asia
Cup
seven
times.
On
the
other
hand,
Pakistan
have
won
the
title
twice.
