As part of the Asia Cup 2022 Super-4 phase matches, Afghanistan-Sri Lanka teams met yesterday (September 3). In this match, Sri Lanka defeated Afghanistan by 4 wickets and avenged their defeat in the group stage. Although Afghanistan got a good start in this match, in the end they lost the opportunity to score big as they could not get quick runs. As a result, they were limited to 175 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in the allotted overs. In order to chase down a modest target, Sri Lanka played aggressively from the start and finished the match in 19.1 overs.

Meanwhile, the devastating innings played by young Afghan opener Rahmanullah Gurbhaj (84 off 45 balls; 4 fours, 6 sixes) was the highlight of the entire match. Gurbhaj won the Man of the Match award after Afghanistan lost the match. Gurbhaj, who completed his half-century in 22 balls, set many records in his account through this innings. He also holds the record for the fastest half-century (22 balls) in T20 Internationals for Afghanistan and the highest individual score in Asia Cup T20s.

The highest score record in Asia Cup T20 was previously held by India captain Rohit Sharma (83 off 55 balls against Bangladesh in 2016). With yesterday’s match, Gurbhaj broke Rohit’s record and became the top scorer of the Asia Cup. Gurbhaj, who is in super form in this tournament, has scored 135 runs at an average of 45 with a strike rate of 167 in 3 matches and continues to be the top scorer. Gurbhaj, who created havoc with 40 runs off 18 balls in the first match against Sri Lanka, then failed in the match against Bangladesh (11).
