Due to this, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Jasprit Bumrah are likely to miss the last Super 4 match

The Asia Cup match between India and Bangladesh, which will be played on Friday at the R. Premadasa International Cricket Stadium in Colombo, Sri Lanka, is likely to be missed by veteran cricketers Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, and Rohit Sharma because India has already advanced to the final, where they will play Sri Lanka on September 17 at the same location.

The management doesn’t want to take any chances that could endanger any cricketers, and since India is hosting the ICC ODI World Cup and they are a strong contender for the trophy and this is a rubber-dead match, players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Jasprit Bumrah can afford to miss the match.

Tilak Varma and Suryakumar are set to be in India’s starting XI in place of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, while Mohammed Shami will also play against Bangladesh in place of Jasprit Bumrah.

For the eleventh time in Asia Cup history, Sri Lanka will face India in the championship game. This is their second consecutive final.

After Pakistan had recovered from 130/5 to post 252 thanks to a memorable rearguard partnership between Mohammad Rizwan (86 not out) and Iftikhar Ahmed (47), Sri Lanka rode on a strong performance by their middle order to win the rain-shortened 42-overs-a-side match well past midnight.

But Sri Lanka managed to make it through the last two overs despite some tense moments. And Kusal Mendis was responsible for keeping Sri Lanka’s innings together and ensuring their win.

India’s likely starting lineup vs Bangladesh is as follows: Shubman Gill, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan (WK), Tilak Varma
