What are the key takeaways for Asia Cup 2022?

Through their cricket team, Sri Lanka, a country that has been pining for any measure of happiness, received a significant reason to celebrate on Sunday. When the nation was looking for heroes, Bhanuka Rajapaksa’s brilliant unbeaten 71 off 45 and Wanindu Hasaranga’s all-around performance (36 off 21 & 3/27) showed how one could turn hardship into an opportunity as Sri Lanka won the 2022 Asia Cup.

Because of the ongoing political and financial crisis, the tournament was relocated from Sri Lanka to the United Arab Emirates. They at least succeeded in reclaiming their status as a cricketing powerhouse from the Indian subcontinent on Sunday.
