Pakistan are all set to face off against Sri Lanka in the summit clash of Asia Cup 2022 on Sunday, September 11 in Dubai. It will be the second meeting between these two teams in this tournament, with Dasun Shanaka’s men beating Babar Azam’s side by 5 wickets on Friday.
Wanindu Hasaranga was on his peak form, as he picked up three wickets and all scored the winning runs to give Sri Lanka their fourth consecutive victory at the tournament. Pakistan meanwhile will be hoping for a better show in the final.
Shanaka’s side faced a defeat in their first match of Asia Cup, but since then they have won all of their subsequent games against Bangladesh, Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan.
Their opponents meanwhile began their campaign with a loss against India but defeated Hong Kong and qualified for the Super 4, wherein they got the better off Rohit Sharma’s men, and they also beat Afghanistan.
Even though the Lankan Lions won the dress rehearsal on Friday, they will be wary of the threat posed by Pakistan. Sri Lanka have won the Asia Cup five times in their history, while Pakistan have only won twice. Which team will finally get their hands on the coveted trophy? Only time will tell.
PAK vs SL Head-to-Head record:
Overall the two teams have played 22 T20 matches against each other. Pakistan have won 13 matches and have a slight edge historically, while Sri Lanka have won the remaining nine matches.
