The inaugural match of Asia Cup 2022 is about to happen between Sri Lanka and Afghanistan tonight at 7.30 PM at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
With the venue being shifted to UAE instead of Sri Lanka, expect no humidity and favorable for seamers in bowling and batters for the short boundary length of the stadium. With such evaluation, here’s who could be playing tonight.

Sri Lanka will be led by Dasun Shanaka, while Afghanistan will be captained by their legendary Mohammad Nabi. Both the teams will hope to make their initial mark strong, as it could impact their full run in the tournament.
Talking about the venue – the Dubai International Cricket Stadium is seen as favorable for batters with its short straight boundaries, often taking the total above 160 runs an innings. For bowlers, seamers may get more benefitted with extra bounce than spinners on this surface. With that in mind, here’s who could be playing tonight;
Pathum Nissanka, Gunathilaka, Bhanuka Rajaspaksa, Charith Asalanka, Dhananjaya de Silva, Dasun Shanaka, Wanindu Hasaranga, Theekshana, Chamika Karunaratne, Asitha Fernando, and Jeffrey Vandersay.
Najibullah Zadran, Hazratullah Zazai, Ibrahim Zadran, Usman Ghani, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Naveen-ul-Haq, Noor Ahmad, and Karim Janat.
