India suffered a six-wicket defeat to Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2022 Super Four match in Dubai on Tuesday.
The loss diminished India’s chances to reach the final and defend its crown. The two-time defending champion now faces a situation where its qualification for the final depends on results – Pakistan’s to be precise.
Can India still qualify for the Asia Cup 2022 final?
India’s road to the final now depends on Pakistan’s results in its remaining Super Four matches against Afghanistan (Wednesday) and Sri Lanka (Friday).
India will require Pakistan to lose both matches. It will also need to beat Afghanistan by a good margin on Thursday. The equation could still narrow down to an NRR knockout between India and Afghanistan should all of the aforementioned results go in team India’s favour.
