India were knocked out of the Asia Cup final even before their last match against Afghanistan


India were knocked out of contention for the Asia Cup final on Wednesday after Pakistan defeated Afghanistan by one wicket in a tense Super 4 match in Sharjah. Without a win in two matches, India and Afghanistan were knocked out of the tournament and Thursday’s match between the two sides was ruled a no-brainer.

Pakistan and Sri Lanka, with four points each from two wins, have booked their place in Sunday’s top-flight match.

After convincing wins over Pakistan and Hong Kong, India looked clueless at the Super 4 stage.They lost to Pakistan by five wickets and then lost to Sri Lanka by six wickets in a close match.

Despite the losses, India still had a mathematical chance of qualifying for Sunday’s final if Afghanistan beat Pakistan on Wednesday. Besides, India also needed to beat Afghanistan by a big margin on Thursday and for Sri Lanka to do a favor by beating Pakistan on Friday.

India’s fate slipped out of their hands after their loss to Sri Lanka and any faint hopes that remained were extinguished when Pakistan pulled out a final win over Afghanistan in a Super 4 match that could have gone either way.
