It will likely be another intriguing clash for Team India against Sri Lanka in the Super 4 of the 2022 Asia Cup at the Dubai International Stadium on Tuesday. The Indians are in a problematic situation following their loss on Sunday to arch-rival Pakistan by five wickets at the same venue in the opening fixture of this round. A loss tonight could seriously dent their chances of making it to the final. Meanwhile, Lanka would also be determined to get off to a terrific start, to force a step ahead into the final. Thus, it could be a thriller, as we present the ideal fantasy XI picks, predictions, where to watch and other match details.
IND: Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul (vc & wk), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Yuzvendra Chahal and Arshdeep Singh.
SL: Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis (wk), Charith Asalanka, Danushka Gunathilaka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Dasun Shanaka (c), Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Maheesh Theekshana/Praveen Jayawickrama, Asitha Fernando, Dilshan Madushanka.
Batters: Rohit, Kohli (c), Yadav and Rajapaksa
Rohit will be the suitable opener as always, with Kohli firing at number three, Yadav consolidating at number four, whereas Rajapaksa has been a composed one in the middle order. Kohli's comeback in form makes him the skipper.
He has been doing great as an opener and should be Rohit's perfect opening partner.
All-rounders: Pandya, Hasaranga (vc) and Karunaratne
Pandya and Hasaranga are no-brainers, with the latter's magical form making him Kohli's deputy, while Karunaratne can be effective across departments on any given day.
Bowlers: Bhuvneshwar, Avesh and Arshdeep
The three seamers have been terrific of late. While Avesh has been effective in taking wickets, his only drawback is that he leaks a lot of runs.
