Mohammed Siraj turned into an unstoppable force as he dismantled Sri Lanka’s batting lineup with a remarkable six-wicket haul. In just the first six overs, Siraj wreaked havoc, picking up five wickets and sending Sri Lanka reeling at 12/6. His final figures of 6/21 were the best by any bowler in an ODI against Sri Lanka and a testament to his mastery with the ball.

Opting to bat first after winning the toss, Sri Lanka’s decision backfired spectacularly. They were bundled out for a paltry 50 runs, their second-lowest ODI score ever, with India’s bowlers running riot.

India’s opening pair of Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan displayed composure and aggression in equal measure. They chased down the meager target of 51 runs in just 6.1 overs, showcasing their impeccable batting skills. The record-breaking victory was achieved with 263 balls to spare, leaving Sri Lanka shell-shocked.

This Asia Cup final marked several milestones and records:

  • India’s biggest win in terms of balls remaining in an ODI final.
  • Siraj’s 6/21 being the fourth-best ODI figures by an Indian.
  • Sri Lanka’s second-lowest ODI total against India.

Both India and Sri Lanka had their share of injury concerns leading up to the final. Axar Patel’s absence was felt in the Indian lineup, and Washington Sundar was brought in as cover. Sri Lanka lost their frontline spinner, Mahesh Theekshana, for the tournament but expected his return for the World Cup.

Captain Rohit Sharma expressed confidence in his team’s ability to chase down any total and praised the crowd’s support. Sri Lanka’s captain, Dasun Shanaka, acknowledged the formidable Indian bowling attack and the challenges his team faced.
