Sri Lanka suffered a crushing defeat in the first match of the 2022 Asia Cup against Afghanistan. Lanka defeated Bangladesh in a do-or-die match in the group stage. In the Super 4 stages of the tournament, they showed their strength against the rest of the teams and received the trophy. In the last match against Pakistan, Sri Lanka was impressive. The practice of losing the toss means losing the match has ended. Pakistan defeated the team by 23 runs and kissed the trophy for the sixth time.
Talking about the T20 World Cup, he said, “I mean… it’s not just about winning a match (against Pakistan), it’s about winning the World Cup. Obviously, beating Pakistan would be a big step forward. Because it gives a lot of confidence. Because now we can face other teams strongly. However, I think Team India should win at least 4 out of 5 matches. Because only then will we qualify for the knockout,” Gavaskar opined.
