Asia Cup 2022 1st Match Prediction Overview
Asia Cup is finally back and it is going to be held in the United Arab Emirates as it was scheduled in Sri Lanka but due to unstable political situations, this tournament had been moved to UAE. Sri Lanka will remain the host of this big event of cricket in Asia. Sri Lanka and Afghanistan are going to face each other in any T20 match for the second match. These teams played the first T20 match back in 2016 where Sri Lanka won by 6 wickets. Major match prediction providers of the world are favoring Sri Lanka as a favorite team to win this match and we will analyze this game closely.
Sri Lanka Reviews
This event is very important for Sri Lanka and other teams to get the best combination for the upcoming T20 World Cup. Dasun Shanaka is the regular captain of Sri Lanka and he will be leading the side in this Asia’s big event of cricket. The batting order of Sri Lanka is not much stronger. Pathum Nissanka, Nuwanidu Fernando, Danushka Gunathilaka, Dhananjaya de Silva, and the skipper, Dasun Shanaka are leading batters of Sri Lanka. Kusal Mendis, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, and Dinesh Chandimal are wicket-keepers in the squad of Sri Lanka.
It will be very difficult for team management of Sri Lanka to pick the best wicket-keeper from Dinesh Chandimal, Kusal Mendis, and Bhanuka Rajapaksa. We can expect that Dinesh Chandimal will get a chance in the final playing eleven of this match. The bowling department of Sri Lanka is strong and more experienced than the batting department. They have ten bowlers in the squad to choose the best five bowlers. Ashen Bandara, Maheesh Theekshana, Jeffrey Vandersay, Praveen Jayawickrama, Chamika Karunaratne, Dilshan Madushanka, Matheesha Pathirana, Asitha Fernando, Pramod Madushan, and Nuwan Thushara are available for the selection of the best playing eleven for this match.
Afghanistan had not won any title in the Asia Cup and now has a golden chance to claim the first one as they have the best players in the T20 format of cricket in the team and almost all players are available for the selection of the final playing eleven for this match. The batting order of Afghanistan is very dangerous as their many players had featured in different T20 leagues around the world. Najibullah Zadran is the best batter of Afghanistan who had played in IPL, Big Bash League, and Pakistan Super League in recent editions. Hashmatullah Shahidi, Hazratullah Zazai, Ibrahim Zadran, and Usman Ghani are the other dangerous batters of the T20 format of cricket in the squad of Afghanistan. Hazratullah Zazai has a lot of experience playing in the conditions of Dubai and he can be dangerous against the bowlers of Sri Lanka.
Mohammad Nabi will be leading Afghanistan in this tournament while Afsar Zazai and Rahmanullah Gurbaz are wicket-keeper batters in the squad of Afghanistan. The bowling unit of this team is also known as experienced and dangerous in T20 cricket. They had produced the best spin bowlers in the world like Rashid Khan and the skipper, Mohammad Nabi. These both bowlers are difficult to play in the conditions of Dubai. Azmatullah Omarzai, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Karim Janat, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Naveen-ul-Haq, Noor Ahmad, and Fareed Ahmad Malik are other bowlers in the squad of Afghanistan.

Pitch Report and Conditions
The 1st Match of Asia Cup T20 2022 is going to be held at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. We had observed in the previously played series here that the pitch here at this venue is good for batting. The track is slower than the others we have seen and helps the spinners quite a bit. We are hoping that the surface is bound to get slower and be a bit more difficult for batting in this match. A score of 180 is going to be tough to chase.
Weather Report for Today’s Match
The weather forecast in Dubai is predicting some clouds around on match day but the weather forecast does not predict rain. We should be able to have a full uninterrupted match.
