Prediction Pakistan vs Sri Lanka: Asia Cup 2022


Pakistan will face Sri Lanka in the 3rd match of Super 4 on 10 September 2022 in Dubai. Both the teams have qualified for the final already as both of them have won two matches. Let’s analyze the teams to make a prediction about their third match of the Asia Cup 2022

Sri Lanka

The Islanders have seen a critical time in their country. They have suffered from economic and political crises recent past. This Asia Cup has finally brought some smiles to the sad faces of the country.

The team has won tier two matches in the super 4 stage. The team has landed in the final. In the super four, they defeated India and Afghanistan in nail bitting matches. The team will play the final against Pakistan. The team is hopeful to win the final as well.

The combination and teamwork are at their peak. With that, they have defeated big names like India. Also to beat Afghanistan was not that easy.

We are expecting good runs from Dasun Shanaka and Nissanka. Both can be game changers for their team. Shanaka has an average of 46 in the last 10 matches.

In bowling Wassaranga and Madhushanka are dangerous for the opposition. Wassaranga has outclassed Pakistani batsmen in series before this Asia Cup as well. Pakistani batters need to be watchful.


Pakistan is doing great in the tournament. They were favorite as per Betjee analysts and they proved so. They have beaten India and Afghanistan in the super four and have qualified for the final against Sri Lanka. The teams will also play their last match of the super four on Friday.

It has made a chance for the green shirts to grab the Asia Cup for 3rd time in history. After getting defeated by India in the first match, they are unstoppable. The team seemed to be all batters and all bowlers. Even their 9th man is finishing the game so well, that he seems to be an all-rounder, as we have seen in the match against Afghanistan. Otherwise, their batting line goes till 8 num. With such depth in batting it will be difficult to beat this team.

Asia cup has changed the ranking of the top T20 batsmen. Number 1 Babr Azam could not play well as a batsman and has dropped from top to 2nd position. The 2nd Rizwan was very impressive. He was outstanding with his bat. Due to his consecutive performances, he has moved to the number 1 position. Babar might get his form back in this match. The duo can be destructive to the opponents.

The spinners are taking lead in Asia Cup. So Pakistan has wisely taken on board spinners in a good number. Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz have all the ability to destroy the batting line of Sri Lanka. Both have taken man of the match Awards in two separate matches in Super 4.

The result of this match will not affect any of the teams as both of them have qualified for the finals. The teams will definitely put their best effort to maintain the momentum. Moreover, the win will psychologically help them in playing the final.
