Asia Cup 2022: Sri Lanka win toss, opt to field first

Dubai: Sri Lanka has won the toss and opted to field to first against Bangladesh in the knockout fixture of Asia Cup 2022.

After winning the toss, Dasun Shanaka said, “We are going to bowl first. It’s a used wicket, so chasing will be important. We had a good preparation coming into this game. We are concentrate on our batting. We will try to play as we have been playing in the last two years. The team that comes up with a good performance wins.”

“We wanted to field first, but that’s not in our control. We didn’t bat well against Afghanistan, but today is a different day. We have three changes in our team, we have made quite a few changes. Hopefully that will work for us today. We want to play some good cricket today, we are not concerned about what is being talked in the media,” said Shakib Al Hasan.
