India blew away Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2023 final on Sunday, first limiting the hosts to a mere 50 runs followed up by a fast-paced chase to secure their eighth Asia Cup title.

Earlier in the day, Sri Lanka after winning the toss opted to bat first, however, India’s Mohammad Siraj blew away the hosts by taking six wickets — four of which came in a single over — while conceding only 21 runs.

Apart from Siraj’s six-wicket haul, Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah bagged three and one wickets each, leaving Sri Lanka bowled out at 50 in 15.2 overs.


This is the lowest total in the history of Asia Cup one-day international (ODI) history since the record was previously held by Bangladesh, who scored 87 runs against Pakistan back in 2000.

In response, Blue Shirts sailed through the 51-run target and completed the chase in 6.1 overs with 10 wickets in hand.

India’s openers Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill scored 23 and 27 runs respectively.

This is India’s seventh Asia Cup ODI title and eighth overall.

India’s Siraj bagged the Man of the Match award for his impressive match-winning performance.

Meanwhile, India’s Kuldeep Yadav won the Player of the Tournament award. The left-arm wrist spinner picked up nine wickets.
