Asia Cup 2023

‘Ye T20I tha ya ODI?’ – Fans react as India win Asia Cup 2023 with 43.5 overs to spare against Sri Lanka

India won their record 8th Asia Cup title after their victory against Sri Lanka in the final

Team India

Sri Lanka decided to bat first after winning the toss but it might have been the only thing that went right with them. Mohammad Siraj’s outstanding bowling performance against India totally stunned Sri Lanka, who were knocked out for its lowest ODI score.

Earlier in the innings, Bumrah started the proceedings by dismissing Kusal Perera, but Siraj was just terrific after that.  He had fantastic off-the-deck movement and was unplayable with the new ball. The Sri Lankan team was unable to react to the ball’s swing and seam because of him. 

Throughout their innings, several records were broken, and Siraj concluded his spell of seven consecutive overs with 6 wickets. He ended the game by taking 4 of these wickets in the space of one over. 

When Hardik Pandya joined the attack, he did not fall short either as he ended with three wickets to his name. The fast bowlers took all the ten wickets as India folded Sri Lanka for a mere 50 runs on the scoreboard.

Indian batters Shubman Gill as well as Ishan Kishan completed the match in just 6.1 overs, easily defeating the meagre goal. They continued to stay flawlessly on 27 as well as 23, respectively, to help the “Men in Blue” pull off an incredible victory.

Shubman Gill completed with 302 runs across six innings with an average of 75.50, leading the Asia Cup 2023 in runs scored. With 10 wickets across five matches at 12.20, Siraj was India’s top wicket-taker with the ball.

Irfan Pathan, a former Team India bowler who is extremely involved on social media as well as enjoys making fun of Pakistan supporters, remarked on his ‘X’ handle that although India’s opponents are trying to raise a lot of noise, Colombo is not hearing them.

He wrote on his X account, “Padosi abhi bhi Awaz Karne ki Koshish Kar rahe hai, Lekin Colombo Tak unki Awaaz pahoch nahi rahi hai. #Sunday.”
