Team India are locking horns with the Sri Lankan national cricket team in the Super 4 stage of the Asia Cup 2022 tournament. The game is taking place at Dubai International Stadium, Dubai. Sri Lankan captain Dasun Shanaka won the toss and invited Indian cricket team to bat first.
Earlier, India got the better of Pakistan by 5 wickets in the first game. After that, they beat Hong Kong cricket team by 40 runs to make it 2 wins in 2 games. As a result, they made it to the Super 4 stage of the Asia Cup. Nonetheless, Pakistan cricket team made a great comeback by inflicting a defeat on India in the Super 4 stage.
The Green Shirts got the better of Team India by 5 wickets. Rohit Sharma and Co still have a chance to make things right. They will have to defeat both Sri Lanka and Afghanistan in the Super 4 stage. On top of that, they also need to ensure that they win both games by bigger margins to improve their Net Run Rate, which will also keep them in the comfort zone.
During India’s innings, Rishabh Pant’s reaction in the dressing room has been doing the rounds on social media. The incident happened right after Rohit Sharma’s departure.
Rohit Sharma was the pick of the batters for Team India. The Indian skipper top-scored with 72 off 41 balls with the help of 5 boundaries and 4 hits over the fence. After Rohit made his way back to the dressing room, Hardik Pandya and Rishabh Pant stood up as either of the batter was looking to go out to bat.
While both stood up, Rohit Sharma might have pointed towards Hardik Pandya and the latter went out to bat. Pant couldn’t believe as to what happened and his reaction went viral on social media.
