Indian captain Rohit Sharma and batting maestro Virat Kohli were on cloud nine after the Indian cricket team won the Asia Cup 2023 final after defeating Sri Lanka. The Men in Blue thrashed Sri Lanka by 10 wickets at R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo to bag their 8th title of the Asia Cup 2023.
India put up a remarkable performance against Sri Lanka that will be remembered for a long time now. India chased down a low total of 51 runs against Sri Lanka to win the Asia Cup for the 8th time. The result was a foregone conclusion after Mohammed Siraj’s lethal bowling as he single-handedly punctured the batting line-up of Sri Lanka. Siraj returned with figures of 6 for 21 off 7 overs on Sunday in Colombo after Dasun Shanaka won the toss and decided to bat.
