First innings – Sri Lanka 50-10

What a bowling show it was from Mohammad Siraj. The dude didn’t have even a hint of mercy for the Lankan batters. The way he took 4 wickets in one over was insane. And it didn’t come from the usual plan the pace bowler implements. Changing the way he bowls brought results.

The Lankans didn’t have the mood of batting at all. Or was it Siraj that outshined their batters? Well, we leave you to judge that. Hardik Pandya cut through them like it was cheese. Phenomenal bowling display from the Bharat bowlers.

Second Innings India 51-0

And here you go. Not much to say, and a very anticlimactic end to the much-anticipated Asia Cup 2023. Ishan and Shubman have steered India to a comfortable win in this innings. The Lankan bowlers didn’t have much to do in this inning. It was only a matter of how long it would take for the Indian batters to win this tournament. And they did it in the powerplay.

Come on, man, do you want to see the scorecard now?

Shubman Gill 27 (19)Charith Asalanka 0-1

Man of the match

Siraj deserves to be the man of the match today. The way he swung the ball and took those wickets was out of this world. He made this match shorter than a T20 match. This was a short play. Siraj will never forget this bowling display today, and he has to remember what he did today and take it to the World Cup as well because this is where he will need it the most.
