Asia Cup 2022 Final: Pakistan opt to bowl against Sri Lanka
Dubai: Pakistan opted to bowl against Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2022 Final match being played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium this evening.
Before this match, Sri Lanka and Pakistan had met in three Asia Cup finals — the former won in 1986 and 2014 while the latter emerged victorious in 2000.
Pakistan made two changes in their team for this important game as Naseem Shah and Shadab Khan came in place of Usman Qadir and Hasan Ali.
On the other hand, Dasun Shanaka-led Sri Lanka decided to stick with the same playing XI, which helped them win their Super Four game against Pakistan.
