Asia Cup 2022 Prediction
The Asia Cup 2022 is fast approaching, and we can’t wait to see who will take home the title. We’ve been following the teams closely and we have a feeling that it’s going to be a close contest.
India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan also Hong Kong have good ability to win the title. Who do you think will win?
We predict that the final will be between India and Pakistan. Both teams have strong batting lineups and bowling attacks, and we think they’ll both make it to the final. It’s going to be a close match, but we think India will just edge it out and take home the title.
But don’t underestimate the last 2018 Asia Cup Runners up Bangladesh, they almost win the match and hold India from winning from the last ball of the game.
