India will lock horns with Sri Lanka in the third match of the Super 4 stage in the ongoing Asia Cup 2022 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Tuesday, September 06.
Team India are in a do-or-die situation as they lost their opening game of the Super 4 stage against arch-rivals Pakistan by five wickets, and hence they need to win the game against Sri Lanka in order to stay alive in the multi-team tournament.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka are on a roll after their impressive performances against Bangladesh and Afghanistan in their last two matches. So, for fans, it is going to be a cracker of a game.
Teams batting second have found more success at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, even in chases of hefty totals. Unlike Sharjah, pacers will have their impact at this venue.
