Sports Desk: Today's match is the final before the final for India. India made 173 against Sri Lanka in such a life-and-death match. A loss on Tuesday (September 6) will confirm Rohit Sharma's team's exit. The prospect is only on paper. Toss luck did not help India in such an important match in the Asia Cup Super Four in Dubai. After winning the toss, Sri Lankan captain Dasun Shanaka invited India to bat first. Shanaka's decision proved correct by the Lankan bowlers. India lost 2 wickets for only 12 runs. In the second over of the innings, Lokesh Rahul (6) was lbw on the spin of Thickshana. The review did not work either. Virat Kohli returned for zero runs in the next over. After that, Rohit Sharma became the shield for the team. He played a long innings with Suryakumar Yadav. Rohit returned with a personal 72 runs. Then Yadav scored 34 runs, Hardik Pandya 17, Rishabh Pant 17, Deepak Hooda 3, Bhuvneshwar Kumar 0, Ravishchandan Ashwin 15 and Arshaddeep Singh 1. India XI: KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Deepak Hooda, Hardik Pandya, Ravish Chandan Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal and Arshaddeep Singh. Sri Lanka XI: Kushal Mendis, Pathun Nishanka, Charitha Ashalanka, Dhanushka Gunathilaka, Bhanuka Rajapakse, Dashun Shanaka, Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Mahesh Thiksana, Asitha Fernando and Dilshan Maduska.
