Mohammed Siraj’s 6-wicket mayhem crushes Sri Lanka, India bring home 8th Asia Cup

September 19, 2023

Mohammed Siraj bowled a terrific six-wicket spell helping India eventually outplay Sri Lanka by 10 wickets in the final of Asia Cup 2023 at R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Sunday.

India registered a record-extending 8th Asia Cup title. With the help of Siraj’s 6 for 21 in 7 overs, the Rohit Sharma-led side bundled out Sri Lanka for 50 runs after skipper Dasun Shanaka won the toss and opted to bat.

Siraj picked his first five wickets in 16 balls which is also the joint fastest in ODI cricket history. Jasprit Bumrah landed the first blow before Siraj took over and didn’t let the opponents settle down.

In the paltry chase, Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan comfortably took India home in 6.1 overs.
