India play Sri Lanka in the Super 4 of the Asia Cup 2022 on Tuesday, September 6, 2022, at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai from 7:30 PM Indian Standard Time (IST).
India came out on the wrong end of a cliffhanger, losing by five wickets in the final over against Pakistan in their first Super 4 match of the Asia Cup 2022. Virat Kohli’s 60-run knock and Ravi Bishnoi’s economical spell were the positives for India in the defeat. Earlier in the tournament, the Men in Blue beat Pakistan and Hong Kong to advance into the Super 4 as the group leaders.
Meanwhile, the Sri Lankan cricket team will be high on confidence after back-to-back wins in the tournament. Sri Lanka beat Bangladesh in their final group stage game, followed by an emphatic win against Afghanistan in the first Super 4 game. The island nation have won five Asia Cup titles so far.

India top picks vs Sri Lanka Asia Cup 2022 Super 4
Virat Kohli: The former Indian captain’s form in the Asia Cup 2022 has been reminiscent of his prime. Kohli is currently second on the list of top run-scorers in the tournament with 154 runs, averaging at 77.00 with a strike rate of 126.22. The 33-year-old has amassed 339 runs in seven matches against Sri Lanka in T20Is, including four fifties.
Yuzvendra Chahal: India’s premier T20I spinner has only managed to pick up one wicket in this tournament. However, Chahal has a good record against Sri Lanka, taking 17 wickets in nine matches at an average of 16.41. His variation of pace will be tricky to handle for the Sri Lankan batters considering the long boundaries at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
Sri Lanka top picks vs India Asia Cup 2022 Super 4
Dasun Shanaka: The Sri Lankan captain has looked in good knick in 2022, scoring 363 runs in 14 matches at an average of 36.30. Shanaka has accumulated 273 runs against India in T20Is since 2016 and has also picked up 10 wickets. His swashbuckling style of batting will be key for Sri Lanka to post or chase a high total in this match.
Maheesh Theekshana: He has scalped two wickets in the Asia Cup 2022 and has bowled economically throughout the tournament. Theekshana has 18 wickets in his T20I career, bowling at an economy rate of 6.56. India’s top-order has struggled against spinners recently and Theekshana will be a handful here.
India vs Sri Lanka Asia Cup 2022 Super 4 prediction
India have been successful against Sri Lanka in T20Is and their key players have been in good form recently. Although they suffered a narrow defeat in the last match, playing conditions in Dubai will suit the Indian batters and bowlers alike, making them the favourites to win this match.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka have won two matches on the bounce but have struggled against India away from home with only two wins in 14 matches. However, the Lankan Lions are expected to put up a challenge against India in this Super 4 fixture.
