Pakistan and Sri Lanka will be competing for a spot in the Final match of the Asia Cup 2023 in a match on the 14th of September, Thursday. The Final match will be between India and the winner of this game on the 17th of September.
The Super-4 of the cup have been the following:
In the previous game, India defeated Pakistan in the third match of the Super Four stage. Rain first rendered the game unplayable for Babar Azam’s team, and then hundreds from KL Rahul and Virat Kohli made it challenging for the team to chase down the target of 356 runs. By 228 runs, India defeated Pakistan. Pakistan will attempt to compensate for the loss and secure the last available tournament spot in the forthcoming game.
In comparison to their counterparts, Sri Lanka also lost the most recent game to India by 41 runs. Sri Lanka struggled to keep up the pace as they kept losing wickets. Kuldeep Yadav of India made a name for himself with his bowling. On the other hand, Sri Lanka’s Wellalage excelled both while batting as well as bowling, hitting an unbeaten 42 runs and displaying the qualities of an all-rounder.
The two teams have faced off in 155 ODI games before. Pakistan has triumphed in 92 of these 155 games, while Sri Lanka has won 58 of them. Four games were lost without a conclusion. One match resulted in a draw.
In 155 ODI games, Pakistan and Sri Lanka have faced off. Pakistan has triumphed in 92 of these 155 games, while Sri Lanka has won 58 of them. Four games were lost without a conclusion. One match resulted in a draw. The pitch at the R. Premdasa Stadium, Colombo, is favorable to the batting team. Due to the curve and bounce offered by this circuit, spinners in particular can succeed.
The probability of rain on the day of the match is low, but existent. Sri Lanka will automatically qualify for the Asia Cup Final if Pakistan vs. Sri Lanka match is postponed due to bad weather, while Pakistan will be eliminated. Both Pakistan and Sri Lanka will receive one point in the event of a washout, but Sri Lanka’s net run rate is far higher than Pakistan’s, giving them the advantage over their counterparts.
