Naseem Shah shakes the stumps of Kosal Mendes to give Pakistan an early lead in the final of the Asia Cup 2022 against Sri Lanka being played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai, United Arab Emirates on September 11, 2022. placed
Sri Lanka got the better of Pakistan in the dress rehearsal for this match-up in the last Super 4s competition. However this time Babar Azam had the first chance of luck as he won the toss and elected to bowl first. The men in green made two changes as Usman Qadir and Hasan Ali replaced Shadab Khan and Naseem Shah.
Naseem is in excellent form in the ongoing Asia Cup for Pakistan. He won the match with the bat for his team against Afghanistan as he hit two sixes off back-to-back balls in the last over to defeat Pakistan by one wicket.
He also impressed in his debut match against India on 28 August, when he dismissed KL Rahul for a golden duck with one delivery.
Kosal Mendes is no match for Naseem Shah’s pace and movement as his stumps are dropped.
Naseem Shah opened the bowling for Pakistan in a pressure-packed final and dealt Sri Lanka a crushing blow, as Kosal Mendes got a vicious innings which he failed to negotiate and lost his stumps.
Mendes got off to a flying start for Sri Lanka as he scored 155 runs in 6 matches with two fifties and a best score of 60 at a strike rate of 156.56. He was going to put pressure on players like Naseem, Haris Rauf and Mohammad Hasnain.
But Naseem got the better of him as he bowled him a vicious in-swing ball at 142 kmph that caught Mendes late on. Before Mendes could bring the bat down or think about playing a shot, the ball had dropped off his off-stump, flying behind keeper Muhammad Rizwan.
