India vs Sri Lanka Latest News, Asia Cup 2023 Final: Mohammad Siraj brought Sri Lanka down to their
knees in just the first six overs of the match by picking a five-wicket haul in that period.
Jasprit Bumrah started off with a wicket off the third ball and then Siraj just blew the top off the
opposition’s batting lineup by taking four wickets in the fourth over alone. He then came back and
dismissed Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka, thus completing his five-wicket haul in just his second over.
India win this match by 10 wickets easily and Sri Lanka all batting area playing only 13 overs from 50 overs.
Sri Lanka were thus left reeling at 12/6 in 5.4 overs at that point. The nightmare continued for the
home side and Siraj went on record figures of 6/21, the best by any bowler in an ODI against Sri Lanka.
Hardik Pandya got three wickets, wiping off the Sri Lankan innings with two back to back wickets in the
first two balls of the 16th over. Sri Lanka were all out 50, their second lowest score ever in ODIs.
India opened with Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill and then pair put on 32 runs in just three overs. They
soldiered on and chased down the total in the seventh over and India thus won the final with 10 wickets
and 263 balls to spare.
India win the asia cup 2023 trophy!
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Rohit collects it from ACC president and BCCI secretary Jay Shah.
He then hands it to the younger players in the squad, as the Indian captains have done since
MS Dhoni began that tradition all those years back. Well, just over a month ago there were question
marks all over the Indian lineup but over the course of this tournament India have played with a
largely consistent XI. They have also shown that injuries to players, especially batters, is
nothing more than an opportunity for a very talented younger player on the sidelines. It means
that Shreyas Iyer may have to possibly fight for his place considering just how solid Ishan Kishan
has looked, regardless of where he has batted. Their bowling lineup is currently screaming firepower
thanks to Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj and Kuldeep Yadav. So much so that someone of Mohammed Shami’s
calibre and experience is not getting a spot. They have won their eighth Asia Cup title on a canter
and sounded off a warning to all the other teams they will be hosting in the World Cup next month.
This is their home and they won’t be easy to beat. That’s it from us for today and for this tournament,
hope you had as much fun following it with us as we had in bringing it to you. Goodbye!
