India Vs Sri Lanka: Twitter Slams Indian Team After They Lose To Sri Lanka By 6 Wickets; Virtually Out Of Asia Cup 2022


The recent most Super 4s clash of the Asia Cup 2022 on September 6, 2022, saw India taking on Sri Lanka in what was a must-win encounter for the Rohit Sharma-led side. Sri Lanka came into this encounter after a brilliant win over Afghanistan, while India had lost to Pakistan.

Dasun Shanaka, captain of Sri Lanka won the toss and chose to bowl first. The Islanders came into this match unchanged, while India left out Ravi Bishnoi, who was impressive against Pakistan, to bring in Ravichandran Ashwin into the XI.

However, Maheesh Theekshana and Dilshan Madushanka ensured India had a bad start as the spinner got rid of KL Rahul for 6 and the left-arm pacer dismissed Virat Kohli for a duck respectively. Then Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav (34) added 97 runs for the third wicket when the Indian skipper fell.

Rohit Sharma made 72 in 41 balls with 5 fours and 4 sixes. However, after that the Sri Lankan bowlers tightened the grip as Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya (17 each) got out when India needed them to score quickly the most.

Ravi Ashwin made 15* with a six as India finished on 173/8, atleast 20-25 runs short of what they would have liked. For Sri Lanka, Madushanka picked 3/24, while Chamika Karunaratne and Dasun Shanaka picked two wickets each.

The Sri Lankans knew how important this match was for them and they went after the Indian bowlers from the start. Pathum Nissanka made 52 in 37 balls and Mendis continued his stellar form, scoring 57 in 37 balls as they added 97 runs in 11.1 overs.

Indian bowlers, especially Yuzvendra Chahal did a great job to bring India back into the game, as he picked 3/34 and Ashwin picked one wicket, but the batting depth of the Lankan team proved to be too much for India.

The lack of a genuine third pacer haunted them as Hardik Pandya gave 12 runs in the 18th over and Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s poor display in death continued as he went for 14 runs in the 19th. Arshdeep once again almost defended 7 runs, but Sri Lanka scampered home with 6 wickets and one ball in hand.

With this win, Sri Lanka sits at the top of the points table, while India has been virtually knocked out and they will depend on the results of both Pakistani games.

Twitterverse was all shocked at the Indian team’s display in this match and slammed the team, while also lauding Sri Lanka for their amazing team effort.
