So, today is the big final of the Asia Cup 2022 between Sri Lanka and Pakistan. Both of these teams have shown in the matches before the final that they are undefeatable.
But today, only one of these teams will be crowned the champions of Asia. Will it be Sri Lanka or will Pakistan lift the trophy?
Talking about their last game, then we saw how Sri Lanka defeated and crushed Pakistan in the last game of the Super 4s. Pakistan will try to get even with Sri Lanka in the final today.
Both these teams have faced each other 21 times in T20Is. Out of these 21, Pakistan has won a majority of the games which is 13 while Sri Lanka has won only 8 times.
Sri Lanka’s key has been their spin bowling combined with a decent batting lineup that has helped them see through the games against India, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
For Pakistan though, the road was quite tight as they won by close margins against India and Afghanistan but then lost to Sri Lanka.
So, get ready to witness the epic final tonight.
