Sri Lanka beat India with 6 goals in the 2022 Asian Cup


Sri Lanka on September 6 beat India in the second Super 4 match of the 2022 Asian Cup in Dubai by six defeats. With this, India was almost eliminated from the tournament, as they had lost to Pakistan in the previous match. India’s run in the series depends on Afghanistan’s performance against Pakistan on Wednesday.

Responding to India’s 173-run challenge, Sri Lankan openers Pathum Nissanka and Kusal Mendis dominated from the start and overcame 50 runs in just five passes.

Pathum Nissanka scored 52 runs in 37 balls and while Kusal Mendis scored 57 runs in 37 balls.

Like the match against Pakistan before it, the Indian players barely made an impression and didn’t succeed early on. Although cameraman Yuzvendra Chahal took 3 broomsticks, while Ravichandran Ashwin eliminated Danushka Gunathilaka.

After losing the pitch, the Indian started sloppy and lost KL Rahul to Maheesh Theekshana and then Virat Kohli’s snap to Sri Lankan pitcher Dilshan Madushanka.

However, India captain Rohit Sharma held his ground with Suryakumar Yadav for a good partnership passing the 100 mark in just 12 rounds.

Soon after, however, India lost out on captain Rohit Sharma who played a captain’s knockout with 72 runs in just 42 balls, hitting 4 and 5. Suryakumar Yadav also followed Sharma closely and walked to the stall by scoring 34 runs in 29 balls.

Hardik Pandya and Risabh Pant both scored 17 runs and walked to the stall. Then, Indian batting collapsed, and yet India overcame 173 runs in 20 rounds by losing eight batting runs.

For Sri Lanka, Dilshan Madushanka emerged as the most successful pitcher and won 3 goal shots. Meanwhile, Chamika Karunaratne and Dasun Shanaka each took 2 butterflies.
