In a one-sided final clash at the R.Premadasa Stadium, India produced a clinical performance to decimate Sri Lanka and claim their 8th Asia Cup title in style. It was a day to forget for Sri Lanka as they were bundled out for a mere 50 runs, setting up an easy target for India.

Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat first, a decision they would soon regret. Their innings turned into a nightmare as Indian bowlers led by Mohammed Siraj wreaked havoc. Sri Lanka’s top order crumbled under the relentless pressure from the Indian bowlers. Kusal Mendis was the highest scorer with 17 runs. Sri Lanka was eventually bowled out for just 50 runs in 15.2 overs.

Siraj was the standout performer with the ball, scalping an incredible 6 wickets for just 21 runs in his 7-over spell. He was well supported by Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya, who chipped in 2 and 3 wickets respectively.

A 10-wicket victory for Team India

Chasing a modest target of 51 runs, the Indian openers, Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill, displayed composure and confidence. They reached the target comfortably in just 6.1 overs without losing a wicket. Kishan contributed 23 runs, while Shubman scored 27 runs, guiding India to a resounding 10-wicket victory.

India’s victory also set a new record for the biggest win in an ODI final in terms of balls remaining, with 263 balls left in their innings, surpassing the previous record of 226 balls.
