Asia Cup 2022: India vs SL – Best Fantasy team, possible playing 11s, Head to Head, pitch & weather details and more | Cricket News

It’s time for the next chapter in a subcontinental rivalry that goes back decades. It’s time for India vs Sri Lanka.
The two teams will be up against each other for the first time in the ongoing edition of the Asia Cup. While India and Pakistan made it to the Super 4s from Group A, Sri Lanka and Afghanistan advanced from Group B.
Though India marched into this stage of the tournament with two wins in two matches in the league stage, they now find themselves in a tricky position after the 5 wicket loss in a thriller of a match vs Pakistan last Sunday.
India need to win tonight’s match to get their first points and to stay in the running for the final on September 11. If they lose tonight it could mean curtains for Rohit Sharma and co. in the 2022 Asia Cup.
