Asia Cup 2023: India team is in trouble against Sri Lanka in the Super 4 round match. The Sri Lankan team has stopped The Men In Blues on a subpar score and they have a decent chance to win now.
After a sensational victory against Pakistan, this would be a huge disappointment for India. If they lose this, they will have to win against Bangladesh at all costs so that they can qualify for the finals.
But more than India, it will be Pakistan who will be in real trouble if India loses today. Pakistan suffered a 228-run defeat to India. The biggest victory by India against their arch-rivals.
Pakistan Getting Knocked Out Of Asia Cup 2023?
If India loses today, the road to the final will become extremely difficult for Pakistan. As they have lost to India by a massive margin their net run rate is in the mud. They are third in the Super 4 table because of that.
If Sri Lanka wins they will qualify for the final while India will have to defeat Bangladesh to secure their place. Pakistan will face Sri Lanka in the last Super 4 match in the hope of getting 2 points to qualify.
But they will not only have to defeat Sri Lanka, they must do it by a very huge margin. So that their net run rate can become positive and they can knock down either India or Sri Lanka down because of the Net Run Rate.
In Case Of Washed Out Matches?
If every match from here is washed out, then Pakistan will be disqualified from the tournament. So, they not only have to pray for India to win, but they must also pray for no rain in the upcoming days so that they can play complete matches.
The Pakistan team will also miss Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah because of injuries. So, it is looking really bad for them here.
