India lost its first Super 4 match against Pakistan while Afghanistan lost to Sri Lanka in the first Super 4 match. Afghanistan will play against Pakistan on 7th September 2022. Sri Lanka beat India by six wickets as they chase down a target of 174 with one ball to spare.

The surface at the Dubai Cricket stadium rarely produces matches in the vicinity of 160-170 and is not exactly conducive for explosive batting. The straight boundaries of Dubai are very small and the batsman takes full benefit of it. Some seam movement and extra bounce are also on offer here. There is very little assistance for the spinners on this wicket.
