Asia Cup 2022: India vs Sri Lanka, Toss, Pitch, Playing XI, Team News: SL opt to bowl; Ashwin replaces Bishnoi


After winning the toss in Dubai on Tuesday, Sri Lanka skipper Dasun Shanaka opted to bowl first against India. Electing to field, Shanaka said, “Record here is that the chasing teams have done well. Our batters put up a good show, we want to continue that. We’re playing with the same team.”

Meanwhile, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma, said, “We would have bowled first as well. The pitch doesn’t change much but gets slightly easier in the second innings. But we’ve batted pretty well, and we have a good opportunity to come out and play freely. It’s important for us to get everything right from the word go. (Pakistan) Games like this makes us learn a lot more than you win a game. (Same pitch): Grass is bit less, and it looks slightly drier. One change: We’ve got Ashwin in place of Bishnoi.”

After starting the tournament with a thrilling five-wicket over arch-rivals Pakistan and then a comfortable win over Hong Kong in the group stage, India fell to their first loss in the ongoing Asia Cup, as Pakistan clinched a nerve-wracking five-wicket win. To qualify for the final, the defending champions will need to beat Sri Lanka and Afghanistan by good margins in their remaining Super 4 games.

If India lose they will need to depend on other results going their way. Meanwhile, if Sri Lanka win, they will become favourites to seal their place in the final.
