Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan’s cricket team, cited the squad’s subpar fielding and bowling as the reasons for their Asia Cup defeat to Sri Lanka. Pakistan scored 252 runs in the most recent game, but their bowlers were unable to contain it, and Sri Lanka triumphed with 8 wickets left.
With 91 runs, Kusal Mendis led the team for Sri Lanka, although other players also scored runs. Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan, acknowledged that Sri Lanka performed better and expressed dissatisfaction with his team’s bowling and fielding.
Dasun Shanaka of Sri Lanka said they were in charge of the game but needed to keep it that way until the very finish. Although he agreed that Pakistan had a chance to recover, he gave Asalanka credit for ensuring Sri Lanka’s victory.
