India posted 173 for 8 against Sri Lanka in Asia Cup-2022

Pathum Nissanka and Kusal Mendis have kept the Indian bowlers at bay with some sensational stroke play in Sri Lanka's 174-run chase in the ongoing Asia Cup Super 4 match.

Earlier, India posted 173 for 8 on the board, thanks to Rohit Sharma's 72-run knock off 41 balls. Rohit Sharma's blazing fifty laid a solid platform for India but the side failed to make most of it as Sri Lanka chipped in with wickets at regular intervals after the departure of the Indian skipper.

Rohit Sharma first raced to his 28th T20I fifty in only 32 balls and then ran amok to tear apart the Sri Lankan bowlers before the latter bounced back in unison.

Dilshan Madushanka claimed three wickets, while Chamika Karunaratne and Dasun Shanaka claimed two wickets apiece. Sri Lanka captain Shanaka had won the toss and opted to bowl first in the Super 4 tie of the ongoing Asia Cup.
