India vs Sri Lanka Highlights, Asia Cup 2023 Final: Gill and Kishan did the job in 6.1 overs after Siraj's six-wicket haul blew Sri Lanka away for 50.
India vs Sri Lanka Highlights, Asia Cup 2023 Final: Mohammed Siraj brought Sri Lanka down to their knees in just the first six overs of the match by picking a five-wicket haul in that period. Jasprit Bumrah started off with a wicket off the third ball and then Siraj just blew the top off the opposition's batting lineup by taking four wickets in the fourth over alone. He then came back and dismissed Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka, thus completing his five-wicket haul in just his second over. Sri Lanka were thus left reeling at 12/6 in 5.4 overs at that point. The nightmare continued for the home side and Siraj went on record figures of 6/21, the best by any bowler in an ODI against Sri Lanka. Hardik Pandya got three wickets, wiping off the Sri Lankan innings with two back to back wickets in the first two balls of the 16th over. Sri Lanka were all out 50, their second lowest score ever in ODIs. India opened with Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill and then pair put on 32 runs in just three overs. They soldiered on and chased down the total in the seventh over and India thus won the final with 10 wickets and 263 balls to spare.
