The Asia Cup 2022 is filled with twists and turns. The Indian cricket team is on the verge of getting knocked out after getting 2 consecutive losses. Sri Lanka beat India by 6 wickets and 1 ball to spare in the Asia Cup 2022 Super 4 game. But can India still qualify or is it virtually knocked out of the tournament? Here is an in-depth look at whether and how India can qualify and how India lost to Sri Lanka:
Why Did India Lose in India VS Sri Lanka Asia Cup Game:
The Indian team and its bowling attack have been a concern. In the absence of Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel, the bowling is struggling. If Yuzi has a good day the others have a bad one. If Yuzi had a bad day, the other bowlers do cope but they do not nullify the losses to Yuzi. The bowling is struggling big time. Bhuvi has lost the form he showed earlier. Bhuvi is not able to pick the early wickets. If the same continues for a few more games, Deepak Chahar can be considered too.
The top order batters need to fire and a few middle order batters need to perform. There has not been a single game where both the openers have taken the game deep. The “Bazzball” strategy is not working for India as the batting is more prone to collapse. This score of 173 would have gone past 200 if Rohit Sharma would have batted till the end.
How Can India Still Qualify for the Asia Cup Final:
