Former Pakistan bowler and head coach, Waqar Younis has said Sri Lanka’s scintillating performance in the recently- concluded CB series in Australia, makes them slight favourites for the Asia Cup.

He added that they have seen both India and Pakistan struggle recently in One Day Internationals, with Sri Lanka doing unexpectedly well in Australia.

 

He also went on to say that if you go by form alone, then Sri Lanka has to be considered slight favourites, but added, that in the sub-continent, pitches and conditions are different and will be spin friendly, so really its down to the classic case of any team ,that plays well on that one day, will win.


He also stated that one should not under-estimate tournament hosts Bangladesh since they are a good side, and though they may not win the tournament, they have the ability to upset some of the bigger sides.
