T20 Asia Cup 2022

Post by Kriterion_BD »

Afghans looking good to thump Sri Lanka in the opener.

Very odd scorecard. Sri Lanka took 20 off one over, but still only managed a mere 105 in 19.4 overs. That means they scored 85 runs from the other 18.4 overs at just 4.55 runs per over.

That first Afg over was ridiculously good. But yeah our team is very mentally weak. We never start anything off well. The first match is always a loss no matter what lmao. You guys should check out the Nissanka wicket

That was quite a performance from Afghanistan and it once again shows how vulnerable SL are, they have got some good youngsters in there now, but still a very vulnerable side.

It also shows that Afghanistan are always a threat in white ball cricket and there is a good reason why they are directly into the T20 WC main draw as well as sitting pretty in the WSL table.

Cracking game that between India and Pakistan and we've come up on top!!!

Hardik Panya has come through leaps and bounds. He is probably the future captain of team India once Rohit retires. Jadeja is such a vital member of the playing XI too.

Pakistan's non existent middle order was brutality exposed. I think they could do well to include Sarfaraz Ahmed and Umar Akmal in their line up instead of Shah and Asif Ali. Hugely impressed with Naseem Shah, as I said earlier he can form a very formidable pair with Shaheen.

Can blame the middle order but Rizwan a big part of the reason Pakistan lost the game. 43 off 42 balls in a T20 opening the batting is criminal. Someone should have shot him after about 20 balls.

Also what was with both of their pacers having cramp at the end?! They had only bowled 3 overs each wtf. Let's hope they never have to play a Test match!

Didnt watch but I thought the whole problem was that the middle order was very prone to collapses. So one of the top 3 has to somehow stay in

Prolly the extreme heat. Temps hit 45 degrees during the day and probably still close 38-40 even at night.

Zadran with 2 sixes...game over for BD.

BD vs SL will be a knockout match!
