The 9th match of the Asia Cup 2022 will see India facing off against Sri Lanka on 6thSeptember at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai.
The temperature is expected to hover around 35°C on the matchday with 47% humidity and 15 km/hr wind speed. There are no chances of precipitation during the game.
Rohit Sharma’s team cannot afford to lose to Sri Lanka in Dubai on Tuesday. If they do so, the defending champions will have to rely on other results going their way to have a chance of making the final. And Sri Lanka will become favourites for a place in the summit clash.
The surface of Dubai International Cricket Stadium is not exactly ideal for explosive batting because it generally produces games that last between 160 and 170 scores. Because Dubai’s straight boundaries are so short, the batsman makes the most of them. Here, there is also some seam movement and added bounce on offer. On this surface, the spinners hardly receive any assistance.
