The Asia Cup 2022 Super 4s stage is just about to begin. Afghanistan along with India and Sri Lanka have paved their way into this stage of the tournament and one among Pakistan and Hong will join the other three teams.
Asia Cup 2022: India likely to play 4 matches in the Super 4
The Super 4 stage of the Asia Cup 2022 is all set to begin on Saturday (3rd September) with Sri Lanka taking on Afghanistan in Sharjah.
Coming to the Indian Cricket Team, the Rohit Sharma-led side is scheduled to play three matches in the Super 4s stage. However, if they play well to their potential, they are likely to play in the final as well, which makes 4 matches for them in the Super 4s.
Their first match in the Super 4s stage will be on Sunday (4th September). Team India is most likely to face Pakistan as it is expected that the Babar Azam-led side will defeat Hong Kong. However, if Hong Kong upsets India’s arch-rivals then India will face the associate nation.
Of two stellar knocks, a dominating partnership, mutual admirations & much more 💥👌

The Men in Blue are then slated to face Sri Lanka on 6th September before locking horns against Afghanistan on 8th September in Dubai. If they win all their games or if they manage to keep the top two spots in the points table of the Super 4s stage, they are almost certain to play the final on 11th September in Dubai.
Asia Cup 2022: Predicting India’s Playing XI for the Super 4s stage
India displayed two staggering performances in the group stage of the tournament. They pounded Pakistan and Hong Kong to comfortably claim the place in the Super 4 stage of the tournament.
Pakistan will likely qualify for the Super 4s stage and the fans would be in to witness another India vs Pakistan clash. The match against arch-rivals is always a pressure game and therefore the Rohit Sharma-led side would be eager to field their best XI and would be eyeing to win the tournament.
