Sri Lanka is the second team to win the Asia Cup T20. Yesterday i.e. on Sep 11, the Lankan Tigers won the match by 23 runs against Pakistan in Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

The hosts of Asia Cup 2022, Sri Lanka, won this event six times, and now they have the second most Asia Cup titles after India, who has won this tournament seven times.

India was also the defending champions of this 15th edition. But sadly, they couldn't qualify for the finals as they lost two back-to-back games against Pakistan and the winners, Sri Lanka, in the super 4 round.

But still, there are some positives for the men in blue side ahead of the T20 Worl Cup 2022 in Australia.

Today we shall list the Indian players who were good in the Asian Cup 2022 edition -

Virat is the second-highest run-scorer of the tournament. He had amassed 276 runs in five matches and that many innings.

VK also slammed a century in this tournament. The wait for Kohli’s 71st ton was over after he played an unbelievable knock of unbeaten 122 runs against Afghanistan.

The former Indian skipper is the only Indian batter to smash a century in the Asia Cup T20 tournament. He had an average of 92, which is the best in this edition, and a strike rate of 147.59.

The Indian speed star, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, is the highest wicket-taker in the Asia Cup 2022 edition. India missed the services of Bumrah and Harshal Patel in the tournament.

But still, Bhuvi ended this event as the pick of the Indian bowlers. Kumar has also taken one four-wicket and five-wicket haul.

He has picked up eleven wickets to his name from just five matches and five innings. Bhuvi had the second-best bowling average of 10.45 and registered the best bowling figures in the Asia Cup 2022 edition.

Bhuvneshwar picked up five wickets and gave away just four runs in the match against Afghanistan. His strike rate was also the second best in this edition. Bhuvi had a strike rate of 10.36.

The Indian skipper had led the team from the front when the Lankan Tigers asked them to bat first in their do-or-die match. Rohit Sharma stood like a pillar and scored a vital 72 runs, allowing India to get a challenging score in the end.

But due to the failure of the other Indian batters like Virat, Suryakumar, Pant, and Hooda, Team India couldn’t get more runs on the board.

Hit Man scored a valuable 72 runs, which came when the team needed it the most. Rohit Sharma had a strike of 175.61 in this innings, and he took just 41 deliveries to score that many runs in more challenging conditions.

Rohit Sharma scored 133 runs in four matches and four innings of the Asia Cup 2022 edition.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar was asked to deliver in the last over of the Asia Cup 2022 matches which were played in the shortest format. But Bhuvi failed to deliver in the final overs, and Arshdeep was given the responsibility, which he carried out well.

But India lost the matches because the batters didn't score enough runs on the board.

In the super 4 round matches against Pakistan and Sri Lanka, Singh delivered an all-most perfect 20th over despite having just seven runs to defend.

He had impressed with the skills he showed in death overpressure situations. Many believed that Arshdeep has a similar quality of Boom Boom while bowling in the final few overs of T20I innings.
