India lost to Srilanka in another thriller last night in Asia Cup 2022 super four matches.
Another match went down to the wire and Men in blue found themselves on the losing end. India still has very little hope to make it to the finals but it all depends on permutations and combinations i.e. if Srilanka wins all three matches, Afghanistan defeats Pakistan and India have to defeat Afghanistan by a large margin then on the points table Srilanka will have 3 wins and India, Pakistan and Afghanistan will have 1 win each and second finalist will be decided on basis of run rate.

The unbeaten partnership between Bhanuka Rajapaksha and skipper Dasun Shanaka of 64 runs helped Srilanka to reach the target of 174 runs.
Bhubaneswar Kumar bowled the 19th over of the match giving away 14 runs, in the last over Srilanka needed 7 runs from six deliveries Arshdeep Singh bowled some good yorkers giving 5 runs in the first 4 balls now the equation becomes 2 runs in 2 balls.
