Asia Cup 2022: Sri Lanka tottered at 58 for 5 in 8.5 overs, and Pakistan chose to bowl Iftikhar Ahmed and Shadab Khan. Mohammad Nawaz got to bowl just one over in the game.

Moin Khan agreed with Latif’s remarks. “We should have attacked with our main bowlers, the fast bowlers. That’s what common sense says.

The former captain claimed that Rauf would have been dismissed if the strongest bowling had been used. He claimed he was taken aback to see Azam choose a part-time spinner at the moment. The former cricketer claimed that he would have continued to use pacers in his attacks.

The Sri Lankan hitters were on the ropes when the score reached 58 for five, thanks to Rauf and the Pakistani spinners. However, Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Wanindu Hasaranga joined forces to deny Azam and his troops the opportunity to win. Sri Lanka defeated Pakistan by 23 runs to win the match and the Asia Cup after Pakistan’s batters failed to reach the 171-run goal.

During a post-game show on Boss News, Latif physically counted the number of overs in which Sri Lanka scored over ten runs in the second half of their innings before conducting a comparative analysis of Pakistan’s chase. It was determined that the Pakistanis had only scored more than ten runs in 4 of the 20 overs.
