Description

The mega final of the Asia Cup will be played between the two best teams of the tournament. Sri Lanka and Pakistan have played far better cricket from their opponents. It is going to be an interesting encounter.
Pakistan
The defending champion has lots of injury worries. Shahid Afridi, the star all-rounder, is not one hundred fit and his participation is still not guaranteed. It is going to be a huge blow if he is not able to make it. He has won two games for the team single handedly and his presence in the team is must if Pakistan has to achieve any sort of positive result against the inform Lankan team. Umar Gul, Sharjeel Khan along with opener Ahmed Shehzad, are struggling with injuries and their fitness will be accessed just before the start of the match. Pakistan will have to handle Kumar Sangakkara and Lasith Malinga as these two could take away the game from them in a span of few overs.
Sri Lanka
The rainbow nation will like to work around the things quietly with the buzz surrounding Afridi. Sangakkara and Angelo Mathews are batting superbly at the moment and there is no way of stopping them from scoring. On the other hand, Lasith Malinga is Lanka’s main bowler. He was the main reason behind Lanka’s win against Pakistan in the group stage. The right arm fast bowler took five wickets in that match, which dismantled their opposite team hopes. For Sri Lanka, the form of their former captain Mahela Jayawardene is a worry. He has accumulated just 36 runs from four innings.
Verdict
My money is on Sri Lanka as they have a better squad than Pakistan. They have played well in all the matches of the tournament and know how to pull victories from the difficult situations. There are no fitness issues as far as Lankan team is concerned. However, they have to be careful from Afridi. He is one man, who can win matches from any position. Apart from him, Saaed Ajmal and Umar Akmal are two other players, who are capable of causing problems.
Teams (from)
Pakistan: Misbah-ul-Haq (c), Ahmed Shehzad, Mohammad Hafeez, Sohaib Maqsood, Fawad Alam, Abdur Rehman, Shahid Afridi, Umar Akmal, Umar Gul, Mohammad Talha, Saeed Ajmal, Bilawal Bhatti, Junaid Khan, Anwar Ali and Sharjeel Khan.
Sri Lanka: Angelo Mathews (c), Kusal Perera, Lahiru Thirimanne, Kumar Sangakkara (wk), Mahela Jayawardene, Ashan Priyanjan, Angelo Mathews, Chaturanga de Silva, Thisara Perera, Sachithra Senanayake, Ajantha Mendis, Suranga Lakmal, Lasith Malinga, Dinesh Chandimal and Dhammika Prasad
