While the Men in Blue look poised to win the series with 2 massive wins against Bangladesh and Pakistan, the Sri Lankan squad look depleted after posting 1 win against the qualifier team United Arab Emirates (UAE) and taking a hit from Bangladesh in the following match. Team India leads the table and remains hot favourites to win the series despite injury worries plaguing top players, Dhoni and Rohit Sharma. Sri Lanka is quite obviously struggling, with their captain and key player Lasith Malinga’s knee injury resurfacing and raising the uncertainty of his spot in the 1st March match against India.
With Shikar Dhawan ruled unfit and replaced by Ajinkya Rahane in the second match against Pakistan leaving both the openers injured, the team’s winning combination that has won them 7 out of 8 matches played, has undergone a significant shift. Will the newly shuffled team with the help of youngsters Hardik and Jasprit’s solid backing be able to pull off another victory in their third match in the Asia Cup Series is to be seen.
Come what may, India’s place in the finals is assured unless they mess up badly against UAE. Sri Lanka has to win against India to entertain a hope of entering the finals.
