Only one exception so far. India lost the toss in the regulation match earlier in the day and only batted first to win against Afghanistan. If not, there is no loss of a team chasing a run in this year’s Asia Cup at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

So winning the toss here means closing your eyes and taking the bowling first.


Sri Lankan captain Dashun Shanaka did the same. In this event, where the Lankans set a new record for the highest run chase in the field of Dubai, the opponent’s collection of around 120 is nothing! The fate of the match was decided when Pakistan missed the target of 122 runs in the warm-up before tomorrow’s final. The Sri Lankans finished their preparations for the final with 3 overs to spare. With an easy 5-wicket victory, the image of an unstoppable Sri Lanka was once again painted on the cricket canvas.

Only Afghanistan managed to resist them in the opening match of the tournament. In that match, the Sri Lankan crash is now a distant event! Since then, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, India and finally Pakistan have been in the running wheel of victory. The fourth consecutive victory against Babar Azam boosted the confidence of the Shanakas ahead of the final. However, Afghanistan showed the indomitable mentality of fighting with little capital in Sharjah. They left Pakistan sweating. Whether the same picture can be seen in Dubai or not, there was a glimmer of that possibility in Pakistan’s bowling at the beginning of the run chase.

Mohammad Hasnain picked up Kushal Mendis, who had scored two fifties in the previous three matches, on the second ball of the innings. However, it is good to say that it was Mohammad Rizwan who showed the way for this Lankan opener. The wicketkeeper jumped to his left and gloved the ball from first slip. In the next over, like Kushal, Danushka returned Gunatil empty-handed. This victim was caught by Haris Rauf. The Lankans were in danger after losing 2 wickets for 2 runs. Dhananjaya De Silva’s departure left the team at 29 and the danger intensified.

But the uncertainty about the victory of the Lankans is so far. Then Bhanuka Rajapakshe joined Pathum Nishanka (24 from 19 balls). The latter has been one of the heroes of the Lankans’ victories in the last two matches in this tournament. His partnership of 51 runs off 39 balls for the fourth wicket with opener Nishanka knocked Pakistan out of the match. Even if this pair breaks, another one will stand. This time Shanaka (21 off 16), who won the team in the last two matches, made another pair of 33 runs off 30 balls with Nishanka before getting out. The Lankans were only 9 runs away from victory. Sara Nishanka’s (48-ball 5 fours and 1 six 55*) partner Wanindu Hasharanga also left an impression with the bat in the last innings.

The boundary that ensured the victory was with his bat. The leg-spinning all-rounder, who finished the match with 10 runs from Hasnain’s three consecutive balls, two boundaries and a double, had also finished bowling Pakistan earlier. Not even in fielding? Hasharanga, who was the best of the match with 21 runs and 3 wickets, took two catches as well as a runout!
