Amazon Quiz (September 13): Which of these teams was eliminated at the group stage of the 2022 Asia Cup cricket tournament?

Sri Lanka




Answer: Bangladesh

Sri Lanka won the 2022 Asia Cup championship after a turbulent start to the competition that included unrest at home and in the UAE. Pakistan was the team that took the brunt of this beating; an outstanding Sri Lankan effort sealed a decisive 23-run victory by outplaying Pakistan with the bat, the ball, the field, and the captaincy.

The Sri Lankan batting lineup was led by Bhanuka Rajapaksa, who turned around their 58 for 5 position with an unbeaten 45-ball 71 to help them reach 170. Following that, Sri Lanka outplayed Pakistan in the field, with Wanindu Hasaranga and Pramod Madushan claiming a combined seven wickets during a sluggish batting display.

It had started off so well for Pakistan, with Naseem Shah’s wicket in the first over seemingly setting the tone for Pakistan. Haris Rauf was in equally incredible form, never more so than in a remarkable sixth over where he virtually always challenged the stumps. Pathum Nissanka and Danushka Gunathilaka had already been located by that point, and Dhananjaya de Silva and Dasun Shanaka would not be far behind.

Sri Lanka forced themselves back into the game thanks to a comeback led by Rajapaksa and Hasaranga, and a determined finale ensured they would produce a respectable total. Pakistan’s average ground fielding and catching contributed to their success; their finest fielder, Shadab Khan, had a historically bad outing. Sri Lanka, in contrast, demonstrated on the field just how much they desired this. The first half saw Pakistan suppressed, while the second saw them completely destroyed.
