AFTER LOSING TO SRI LANKA, INDIA CLOSE TO ELIMINATION
DUBAI, Sep. 7, 2022
Now defending champions India have come very close to elimination after a six-wicket defeat against Sri Lanka in their super four stage match of the Asia Cup at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Tuesday.
Result left Indian Cricket Team at the mercy of other teams to have a chance of making it to the final. It also meant that Indian skipper Rohit Sharma’s scintillating 72 off 41 balls went in vain, as the islanders completed a chase of 174 with a ball to spare.
Needing 21 in 12 balls, Sri Lanka scored 14 runs off the penultimate over bowled by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, almost sealing it in their favour. Notably, India will be out of the tournament if Pakistan beat Afghanistan on today.
