After an unexpected loss against arch-rivals Pakistan in game 1 of the Super 4s of Asia Cup 2022, Rohit Sharma-led team India would look to make a comeback in their must-win game against Dasun Shanaka's Sri Lanka on Tuesday (September 6) at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Team India would need to get the best out of their thin bowling resources and avoid too much experimentation in their clash against Sri Lanka if they want to avoid crashing out of the Asia Cup 2022.
