Ahead of the Indian team's Asia Cup 2022 Super 4 match against Sri Lanka, former cricketer Virender Sehwag has made a big prediction and told who will win this year's Asia Cup. Sehwag said that the upcoming match is important for India. After losing to Pakistan in their first match of Super 4, it is a do-or-die match for Team India. Sehwag has predicted that if India loses even a single match, Pakistan can emerge victorious.
Virender Sehwag while talking on Cricbuzz said, "If India loses another match by chance, it will be out of the tournament. Pakistan has the advantage because if they lose one match and win another, their Net run rate will take them to the final as they have lost one match and won two. India has lost one match and will be out if they lose the other. So there is pressure on India."
He further said, "Pakistan will play in the final after a long time and they have beaten India in the Asia Cup after a long time. This year could also be Pakistan's."Pakistan last played an Asia Cup final in 2014, when they lost to Sri Lanka by five wickets. Overall, Pakistan has won the Asia Cup only twice, compared to India's seven and Sri Lanka's five.
Indian cricket team will have to defeat Sri Lanka on 6th September and Afghanistan on 8th September to reach the final of Asia Cup 2022. After this, again a great match can be played between India and Pakistan, which will be the final of the 15th season of the Asia Cup. If this happens then it will be no less than a treat for crores of cricket fans including India and Pakistan.
