Sri Lanka won Asia Cup 2022
Before Dasun Shanaka’s team took over, Pakistan had the upper hand in the Sri Lankan match. Bhanuka Rajapaksa’s unbeaten 71 off 45 balls flipped the script on Sri Lanka’s innings. After they were 67/5 after 10 overs, he hit a four and a six off the next two balls to push their total to 170/6 in 20 overs.
A no-ball and four wides, one of which went to the boundary, from Dilshan Madushanka gave Pakistan an early 10-run lift in their innings. Sri Lanka, meanwhile, has shown little mercy against Pakistan ever since. After struggling to 55 off 49 balls, Mohammad Rizwan was dismissed in the 17th over, which led to a collapse.
Sri Lanka beat Pakistan by 23 runs to win their sixth Asia Cup on Sunday. Pakistan, chasing 171, were knocked out for 147 by Madushan and Hasaranga in Dubai. Sri Lanka set Pakistan a 171-run goal in the Asia Cup 2022 final thanks to Bhanuka Rajapaksa’s 71 from 45 balls. Babar Azam chose to bat first after winning the toss.
Sri Lanka was 62/5 after nine overs because to some scorching bowling from Pakistan, and it appeared Pakistan would get a below-par target. Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva and Rajapaksa’s 58-run partnership helped Sri Lanka set a goal.
Haris Rauf withdrew Hasaranga de Silva in the 15th over. By the sixth wicket, Rajapaksa was ready to assault Pakistan’s bowlers. Sri Lanka reached 170/6 after his 54-run partnership with Chamika Karunaratne. Pakistan’s Haris Rauf took 3 wickets. Naseem Shah, Shadab Khan, and Iftikhar Ahmed each took one.
