The fifteenth edition of the Asia Cup Cricket competition is all set to end on Sunday with a Pakistan vs Sri Lanka championship match. The Asia Cup Cricket 2022 final game will take place at Dubai's International Cricket Stadium on September 11. Both teams suffered defeats at the beginning of their campaigns but bounced back strongly to earn a position in the championship contest. Let's explore how Pakistan and Sri Lanka advanced to the all-important final match. Asia Cup 2022 Super Four Round: Final Points Table Two teams had advanced from each group in the Asia Cup Cricket 2022 Super Round. India and Pakistan had qualified for the Super Four from Group A. On the other hand, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka had managed to finish first and second, respectively, in group B to advance to the next stage. Sri Lanka and Pakistan finished first and second in the points table of the Super Four phase and subsequently advanced to the championship contest. India finished third with one win, while Afghanistan finished fourth in the points standings. Read Who is the current top Asian leg-spinner in T20I Cricket?

However, the Lankan team surprised everyone by putting forth a tremendous battle against Bangladesh to finish in the top two of group B's points table. Read Pakistan vs Sri Lanka: Who will win Asia Cup Cricket 2022? Sri Lanka maintained its winning streak in the Super Four round. They overcame Afghanistan's 175 runs with five balls left in Sharjah. Their next encounter against India was important for the final berth. Sri Lanka shocked the dominant Indian Twenty20 team by winning in the last over even though they were the underdogs. The Sri Lankan team's prospects of competing in the final were all but guaranteed with this victory. They faced Pakistan in their last Super Four match, which served as a preparation for the championship game. The Lankan team dominated Pakistan from the beginning to the end of the game, and they ultimately won the match with three overs remaining.

Read Australia captain Aaron Finch says goodbye to ODI cricket Pakistan’s road to the 2022 Asia Cup Cricket final Pakistan's Asia Cup 2022 campaign began with a disappointing start in a group A match against archrival India, losing by five wickets. Hong Kong was not a difficult opponent for Pakistan to advance to the next round. They easily defeated the Hong Kong team to finish in the top two in group A's point standings. In the Super Four phase, the Pakistan T20I team sweetly avenged their loss to India in the group stage. Pakistan qualified for the Asia Cup Cricket 2022 championship match by defeating India by five wickets and then defeating Afghanistan by one wicket. However, Pakistan's campaign should be concerned by how they played against Sri Lanka in their final Super Four round encounter, which they defeated rather handily.

Read Pakistan vs Sri Lanka: Who will win Asia Cup Cricket 2022? Bottom Line Sri Lanka have performed confidently and efficiently overall at the Asia Cup 2022, in contrast to Pakistan. The Sri Lankan team has shown remarkable resilience after their dismal opening encounter against Afghanistan. Meanwhile, the Pakistani team has had erratic performances. In addition to a few outstanding results, they had unsatisfactory performances in both the group stage and the Super Four round. The Lankan campaign should be feeling more confident in the lead-up to the Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Asia Cup Cricket 2022 final.
Rashid Khan of Afghanistan should be at the top of the list when it comes to leg-spin, especially in Twenty20 cricket. Rashid stands out from the rest because of his exceptional wicket-taking skills, which also earn him extra respect from the opposition batters. The dynamic Afghan spinner is well-known in the franchise leagues and has achieved great success internationally as well. However, the rise of Pakistan's Shadab Khan and Sri Lanka's Hasaranga de Silva has seriously jeopardized Rashid's undisputed supremacy as the world's best leg-spinner. Let's look at who is now the top Asian leg-spinner and has the best recent T20 records on the international scene. Shadab, Rashid, and Hasaranga's T20I bowling stats: What do the stats indicate? Rashid Khan, one of the three, made his T20I debut for the Afghanistan national team against Zimbabwe in 2015. Shadab Khan competed in his maiden Twenty20 international match against the West Indies two years later, in 2017. Hasaranga de Silva of Sri Lanka, on the other hand, made his T20I debut against New Zealand in 2019. Predictably, Rashid Khan has played the most T20Is, with 71, followed by Shadab Khan with 68 and Hasaranga with 43. The average, strike rate, and economy rate of each player's T20I statistics are pretty comparable. Read Pakistan vs Sri Lanka: Who will win Asia Cup Cricket 2022?

However, Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva of Sri Lanka has been the most productive bowler in terms of taking wickets during the past 12 months. He has taken 52 wickets in 30 innings at a 13.96 average since 2021. Sandeep Lamichhane of Nepal is currently in second place, but nearly all of his wickets have come against associate nations. Read Bangladesh women's team to play T20 World Cup qualifiers in UAE Leg-spinners Adam Zampa of Australia, Adil Rashid of England, and IS Sodhi of New Zealand all have outstanding averages and strike rates in the T20 format over the past 12 months. Rashid Khan has taken 29 wickets during this period, while Shadab Khan has bagged 23. But when it comes to taking wickets over the past year, none of Rashid or Shadab can match Hasaranga. Since the Twenty20 World Cup 2021, Hasaranga's strike rate has been at a different level. The best economy rate among these three players over the past 12 months belongs to Pakistan's Shadab Khan, whose overall numbers are exceptional. In contrast, Rashid lags behind these two players in terms of average, strike rate, and economy rate. Hasaranga de Silva, Rashid Khan, and Shadab Khan's T20I statistics (since T20 World Cup 2021) Player Innings Wickets BBI Ave Econ SR Hasaranga de Silva 18 32 4/33 14.46 6.91 12.5 Rashid Khan 20 23 4/9 20.73 6.33 19.6 Shadab Khan 15 22 4/8 15.45 5.89 15.7 Source: https://www.espncricinfo.com/ Read Australia captain Aaron Finch says goodbye to ODI cricket Rashid Khan has kept up his form on the international stage, but during the past 12 months, Shadab Khan and Hasaranga de Silva have excelled even more for their respective national teams. As a result, Rashid cannot be regarded as Asia's top Twenty20 cricket leg-spinner at the moment. Bottom Line Hasaranga de Silva, Rashid Khan, and Shadab Khan all have exceptional leg-spin skills. Hasaranga probably has a knack for getting wickets through enticing the batters. He has therefore outperformed the other two players in terms of strike rate over the past 12 months. Pakistan’s Shadab usually focuses on keeping a tight line and length while being efficient. Rashid Khan, on the other hand, is the most experienced and is aware of what it takes to always remain consistent. It is difficult to differentiate between them in terms of quality. However, Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva of Sri Lanka appears to be in top form and can be dubbed the best Asian T20 leg-spinner right now as his stats speak for themselves.
The fifteenth edition of the Asia Cup is all set to end on Sunday (September 11) with a final match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Both teams started their Asia Cup Cricket 2022 campaigns with a defeat before winning three consecutive matches to earn a spot in the final. Pakistan and Sri Lanka met each other on Friday, which was considered a dress rehearsal for the championship match. The Lankan side won the contest quite comprehensively by 5 wickets with 18 balls remaining and completed their four wins on the trot. The Pakistan vs Sri Lanka championship match preview in Asia Cup 2022 is discussed in this article. Pakistan vs Sri Lanka: H2H Twenty20 International Statistics Pakistan and Sri Lanka have often played against each other in the T20 format. Both sides have met each other on 22 occasions in the twenty20 format so far. Pakistan have led head-to-head contests with 13 wins, while Sri Lanka have won 9 matches. Overall, Pakistan have won four bilateral series, while Sri Lanka have won only one in 2019 and two ended in a draw.

Despite a dominant start to the tournament, India failed to live up to the expectations in the Super Four Round and finished third in the points table with one win. Pakistan, on the other hand, have shown good performances in the competition and secured a place in the final by winning two matches in the Super Four. However, Sri Lanka have surprised everyone with their consistency and improvement since losing horribly to Afghanistan in the tournament opener. The Lankan side have remained undefeated in their last four games and finished first in the points table with three wins.

His last five innings were 10,9,14,0, and 30. Because of Babar's poor form with the bat, Mohammad Rizwan is carrying extra responsibility in the top order. The Pakistan captain looked solid against Sri Lanka in the last match of the Super Four round, but the strike was very poor. Besides, except for Mohammad Nawaz, Pakistan’s middle order hasn’t performed well so far in the competition. They need to find a solution to deal with the Lankan spinners in the middle-overs in the final match. Pakistan's bowling has been impressive and contributed significantly to most of the team’s wins. Haris Rauf, Naseem Shah, Shadab Khan, and Mohammad Nawaz have all done their jobs properly and will be eager to continue their good work in the championship contest. Probable Playing XI Top-Order: Mohammad Rizwan (wicket-keeper), Babar Azam (captain), Fakhar Zaman, Middle-Order: Iftikhar Ahmed, Khushdil Shah, Asif Ali, Mohammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan, Lower-Order: Haris Rauf, Mohammad Hasnain, Naseem Shah.

Since then, the Lankan players have shown magnificent consistency in their performances. Apparently, no major issue has appeared to be solved on the Sri Lankan side. However, they need to be aware of the fact that Pakistan is a very dangerous limited-overs side and have the ability to destroy any opposition on their day. Sri Lanka is unlikely to make any changes for the championship game. Probable Playing XI Top-Order: Kusal Mendis (wicket-keeper), Pathum Nissanka, Charith Asalanka, Middle-Order: Danushka Gunathilaka, Dasun Shanaka (captain,), Dhananjaya de Silva, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Chamika Karunaratne, Lower-Order: Maheesh Theekshana, Matheesha Pathirana, Dilshan Madushanka.

Verdict The Sri Lankan team at the moment has the confidence in themselves to go out and perform to defeat Pakistan in the Asia Cup Cricket 2022 championship game. The Pakistani team, on the other hand, is just as competitive and capable of competing bravely against the Lankan team to win the fifteenth edition of the Asia Cup.

After India's disappointing 6-wicket loss to Sri Lanka on Tuesday (September 6) at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, their prospects of making the Asia Cup 2022 final were all but over. However, the Rohit Sharma-led team has a slight possibility of placing in the top two of this round's points table if the outcomes of the remaining Super Four matches go in their favor. Let’s see how India can still secure a place in the Asia Cup 2022 final. The way India can reach the Asia Cup Cricket 2022 final The Indian team, first and foremost, has to win their last fixture of the Super Four Round against Afghanistan on Thursday. In fact, India must win by a large margin in order to surpass both Pakistan and Afghanistan in the net run rate equation. However, winning big against Afghanistan's side will also not guarantee their place in the championship match. There are other factors which need to come into their way. India’s remaining Super Four Round fixture Date: September 8 | Opposition: Afghanistan | Venue: DICS (Dubai) | Start Time: 8 p.m. (Bangladesh Standard Time) The following results will assist India's chances of securing a place in the championship match: 1) Afghanistan have to beat Pakistan by a narrow margin on Wednesday 2) India have to beat Afghanistan by a huge margin on Thursday 3) Sri Lanka have to beat Pakistan by a big margin on Friday India still have a mathematical (net run rate) chance to make the final if all of these equations go in their favour.

Besides, promoting Mohammad Nawaz up in the batting order worked out perfectly for the Pakistan side.

He is yet to find his rhythm in the tournament. The team will be hoping that Babar can showcase his true potential during the crucial contest against Afghanistan. Pakistan are unlikely to make any changes to the playing XI that participated in the last match. Probable Playing XI Top-Order: Babar Azam (Captain), Mohammad Rizwan (Wicket-Keeper), Fakhar Zaman, Middle-Order: Iftikhar Ahmed, Khushdil Shah, Shadab Khan, Asif Ali, Mohammad Nawaz, Lower-Order: Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf, Mohammad Hasnain Afghanistan Afghanistan seemed to be in complete control during their group phase fixtures. However, some of their weaknesses were exposed during the match against Sri Lanka in the Super Four Round. Afghanistan's top-order has been doing a fine job so far in the competition.

Afghanistan need a strong finish in the death overs for a competitive score. That is why the power hitters have to be at their best against a strong Pakistani bowling lineup. Unexpectedly, leg-spinner Rashid Khan conceded too many runs in the last match against Sri Lanka, which is a real concern for them. Lankan batters had exposed some of his weak points. Farooqi and Naveen were also expensive in the last match. The Afghanistan bowling unit needs to make a strong comeback and there will be no margin for error against a strong Pakistan team. There is no possibility of any changes in the playing XI. Probable Playing XI Top-Order: Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz (Wicket-Keeper), Middle-Order: Ibrahim Zadran, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi (Captain), Karim Janat, Rashid Khan, Azmatullah Omarzai, Lower-Order: Naveen-ul-Haq, Mujeeb-ur-Rahman, Fazalhaq Farooqi.
