The current squad of the Sri Lankan team for Asia Cup 2022 is lacking experienced players. Some of the players are still new to International cricket. The prominent names are Kusal Mendis, Bhanuska Rajapaksa, Chamika Karunaratne, Wanindu Hasaranga, Dhanushka Gunthalika and Dhananjaya De Silva who are new faces of the Sri Lankan team. Kusal Mendis has an average of 19.61 in 38 T20s and Dhanuska Gunthalika has played 41 T20 and has 706 runs with an average of 17.6 while Chamika Karunaratne has 206 runs in 27 T20s and has an average of 17.6. Bhanushka Rajapaksa who played match winning inning against Bangladesh has390 runs in 23 matches with an average of 22.9, Wanindu Hasaranga who can bowl and bat too has 386 runs in 40 matches with an average of 13.8 and with the ball, he has 65 wickets in 38 games and has an economy rate of 6.70. All of these players are crucial for Sri Lanka and could pose threat for Pakistani team On the other hand Pakistani team looks like a balanced side with Babar Azam and Rizwan opening the game and then the power hitters who make up the middle order of Pakistan batting lineup. Asif Ali, Khushdil Shah and Iftikhar got some serious firepower to destroy the opponents bowling lineup. In the bowling department they have Naseem Shah who is in his best form these days, took 4 wickets against India and Hong Kong combined. Nawaz is looking in great touch too with the off spin bowling while Shadab has one of the best economy rates and can bat too if need arises. Haris Rauf can bowl at 140+kph. Pakistan team is favourite for this contest as they are bit more balanced side as compared to Sri Lanka
