IND vs SL: Irfan Pathan Reveals Where Team India Fell Short Against Sri Lanka In Super 4 Stage Fixture

IND vs SL: Everything was moving smoothly for Team India in the group stage. They piled up two wins in a row – against Pakistan and Hong Kong boosted their confidence levels.

However, tables turned just as when they entered the Super 4 stage as they surrendered at the hands of the Pakistan cricket team in Dubai.

The Green Shirts inflicted a 5-wicket win over India in the Super 4 stage fixture. This made things much a bit more complicated for the Indians as they were tasked to clinch both games over Sri Lanka and Afghanistan to stay alive in the competition.

When they locked horns with Sri Lanka, they did have a bit of optimism running through their veins. However, they failed to hit the killer blow with the help of their bowlers.

Despite losing a few wickets, the Lankans looked like they were losing the plot. However, they ensured to come out on top against India in clutch moments of the game.

As a result, the table-toppers managed to beat India by 6 wickets. Mathematically, India aren’t out of the Asia Cup 2022 competition. However, if Pakistan beat Afghanistan today, both India and Afghanistan would be eliminated.

“I think Rohit Sharma missed a trick, a couple of times. First, Deepak Hooda failed to bowl, and second, Arshdeep ought to have bowled the 19th over given the left arm’s favourable angles for the ball to move away.

“That had the potential to be so much better. Not just after the game, but also during analysis, I said that,” said former Indian fast bowler Irfan Pathan on Star Sports.
