Team India could make one change as we look at the best predicted playing 11 for both teams for the Super 4 match vs Sri Lanka in Asia Cup 2022.
After having begun the Asia Cup 2022 with 2 back-to-back wins, the start to Super 4 hasn’t gone as expected for Team India. In a thriller against Pakistan, India batted really well to score 181, but unfortunately, lost the match on the penultimate ball. It was Mohammad Rizwan once again who top-scored for Pakistan in an important clash.
India’s next assignment is now against Sri Lanka in the same Dubai stadium on September 6th. Sri Lanka are coming off a win against Afghanistan by winning a high-scoring thriller in the final over. Whereas Team India have had a contrasting start as they lost to Pakistan by 5 wickets.
With a loss in Super 4’s first match, the match against Sri Lanka now almost becomes a do-or-die game for Team India. A loss from here means India would most probably be eliminated. They can still qualify, but for that one team will have to win all the matches. Whereas the other three teams should win a game each with India’s NRR being the best.
So, will Team India make any changes to the playing 11 after the loss against Pakistan? Well, let’s find out the best predicted playing 11 for the India vs Sri Lanka Super 4 match of Asia Cup 2022. Before that, let’s look at the official squad for Team India for Asia Cup 2022.

Playing 11 for Both Teams:
If we observe Team India’s playing 11 against Pakistan, it wasn’t bad. With Deepak Hooda batting at 7, he could have been used as a 6th bowler. Unfortunately, Rohit didn’t use Hooda even for 1 over when he had a chance against hard-hitting Mohammad Nawaz. So, will he be continued to play at 7 or India could bring in Axar Patel as an extra bowling option?
Well, this could be the biggest question for Team India ahead of the encounter against Sri Lanka. Playing All-rounder Deepak Hooda at 7 is not a bad option as long as he is bowling. But since Rohit didn’t gave him even 1 over, it means, Rohit doesn’t trust his bowling. So, bringing a bowling all-rounder like Axar at 7 could be a good idea.
The other question would be Rishabh Pant vs Dinesh Karthik. Pant didn’t look settled in the clash vs Pakistan. Since he was played above Dinesh Karthik in this match, will he continue to do so? Well, ideally India won’t be too harsh on him just after 1 match. So, India could continue with Pant by giving him one more chance.
