India vs Sri Lanka, the final is finally here. Well, if you want to enjoy the full match highlights, this is the place where you will get the video.
The tournament was full of surprises, twists, and turns. You have to admit not all of these surprises were enjoyable. The rain ruined the entire tournament. Jay Shah has to be the culprit here. This is what happens when you bring politics into sports.
Asia Cup 2023 – A quick review before we see the highlights
Rain ruined the play a lot. There were fights among the players, and some got injured during the play. But the spirit of cricket continued, even if the light was flickering and the days were hard.
Asia Cup 2023 wasn’t the sort of tournament any one of us was expecting. But it sure had its memories. And this final has to be one of those top memories. Nothing can bring the Pakistan vs Sri Lanka final overs down from being the top moments.
We will also cover the Cricket World Cup, like the Asia Cup. So stay tuned with us.
Here are the match details for today’s match.

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.
|SRI LANKA 50/10
|Kusal Mendis 17 (34)
|Mohammed Siraj 6-21
|Dushan Hemantha 13 (15)
|Hardik Pandya 3-3
|Dunith Wellalage 8 (21)
|Jasprit Bumrah 1-23
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?
|Ishan Kishan 23 (18)
|Dunith Wellalage 0-7
|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.
