It is a virtual knockout contest set up in Group B of Asia Cup 2022. Sri Lanka and Bangladesh would fight it out in the middle to survive in this competition. Both sides have made a poor start to the tournament losing their respective games against Afghanistan. The side winning this game would qualify for the Super 4 while the other would have to pack its bags and go home.
The Sri Lankan team has had a poor run in this format and the side has won only twice in the last ten games they have played. Their batting line-up has been in shambles and the side has hardly put up a big score on the board. It is expected to be a close contest as stakes are high for both teams. The side that holds onto its nerves in this game is likely to win.
Dasun Shanaka’s team suffered a crushing defeat in the last. The side has been struggling for form in recent months and their lack of confidence was to be seen as they went down by 8 wickets against Afghanistan. It was a terrible batting performance as they folded up for mere 105 runs on the board. Shanaka would need his batsmen to deliver the goods in this game as they fight for survival.
Pathum Nissanka and Kusal Mendis went out cheaply in the last game and the pair need to set up a good opening wicket stand. Charith Asalanka must do well at No. 3 and add runs with Danushka Gunathilaka and Bhanuka Rajapaksa. Wanindu Hasaranga, Shanaka, and Chamika Karunaratne can play their strokes and the side would expect runs from them in this game.
The bowling attack also looked toothless in the last game. The side would expect to see better spells from Maheesh Theekshana and Dilshan Madushanka with the new ball. Hasaranga is the key bowler for the side, and he needs to do well in the middle overs. Chamika Karunaratne and Matheesha Pathirana shall need to do well in the supporting role.

It was a sloppy performance from Shakib Al Hasan’s side in their last game against Afghanistan which they lost by 7 wickets. Most of their batsmen looked rusty and this would worry the skipper. It is a do-or-die contest, and the Bangladeshi skipper shall want his players to apply themselves in this game.
Mohammad Naim and Anamul Haque shall have to play well at the start of the game. In the middle order, the experienced duo of Shakib al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim mush show the way and build partnerships. They shall need to negotiate the tough batting conditions well. The side would expect to see big hits from the likes of Afif Hossain, Mahmudullah and Mosaddek Hossain as all three of them are good hitters of the ball.
Shakib bowled brilliantly in the last game, and he will need good support from Mustafizur Rahman with the new ball, Taskin Ahmed and Mahedi Hasan also bowled tight spells and the same would be expected from them in this contest. Mohammad Saifuddin and Mosaddek Hossain make it a strong bowling attack.

It would be a warm evening in Dubai on September 1 and batting conditions are expected to be perfect. We have seen a lowish surface in the last two games where batsmen have struggled. But they do well once they get their eyes set in. The side batting first in the game would need 160 runs on the board to feel confident in this game.
Dubai International Cricket Stadium is the largest ground in UAE. It has a flat surface and a fast outfield which allows batsmen to score runs easily. The wicket has gotten a bit slower in recent years. Conditions here have been tough for fast bowlers as they have little margin for error. It has been a happy hunting ground for the spinners as the ball stops on the batsmen and turns sharply.
In the last 30 games played at this venue the side batting first has managed to win only twice. Toss often decides the game at this venue and defending scores has been a challenge. The side winning the toss here would have no hesitation in opting to bowl first.
Sri Lankans must break out from their awful batting form. This is a problem that has hurt the side for too long for the side to make excuses. Their bowlers have also not been in their best form, and this would add pressure on the team. Bangladesh is a better side with depth in their bowling attack. It will be a tight contest, but the Bangladeshis would start slightly ahead of the Sri Lankans in this game.
