Rohit Sharma-led Indian cricket team will face Sri Lanka for the first time in Asia Cup 2022 on Tuesday at the Dubai International Stadium. The Men in Blue will take on Sri Lanka in the third match of the Super 4 stage.

Fans are nervous as well as excited after India lost to Pakistan on Sunday, September 4. While India had won the first game, Pakistan defeated India by five wickets in the second game.

Even as Virat Kohli’s batting has strengthened and the star batsman is back in form, fans are a bit worried as Sri Lanka has successfully chased two games and maintained their winning streak.

After a bad start against Afghanistan, Sri Lanka has came back stronger and won two games consecutively. So, it is high time, Indian players look to bounce back after the defeat to Pakistan in the last-over thriller.

All eyes are on openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul who are expected to stay more than 6 overs. Now, the absence of Ravindra Jadeja due to knee injury has also added to the troubles of team India.

Furthermore, the dilemma between Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik is also a concern for the team. Also, if Avesh Khan fails to recover in time, then Deepak Chahar can get a call in the India’s squad as he is their stand by player.

Worth mentioning, India won all the 3 matches against Sri Lanka in T20Is, the last time when they played in Feb 2022.

India (Probable Playing XI): Rohit Sharma (Captain), KL Rahul/Rishabh Pant, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik (WK), Deepak Hooda, Ravi Bishnoi, Yuzvendra Chahal/Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh

Sri Lanka (Probable Playing XI): Dasun Shanaka (Captain) Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis (WK), Charith Asalanka, Danushka Gunathilaka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, , Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Maheesh Theekshana, Asitha Fernando, Dilshan Madushanka
