India won Asia Cup 2023 Title, India vs Sri Lanka

On September 17, 2023, at Colombo’s R. Premadasa Stadium, India secured their eighth Asia Cup title by defeating Sri Lanka by 10 wickets in the final match. This victory marked India’s first Asia Cup win since 2018. Sri Lanka won the toss and chose to bat first, but they were dismissed for a meager 50 runs, marking the lowest total ever in an Asia Cup final. Mohammed Siraj was the standout performer among the Indian bowlers, claiming 6 wickets for just 21 runs. In response, India effortlessly reached the target in a mere 6.1 overs without losing a wicket. Ishan Kishan contributed 23 runs off 18 balls, while Shubhman Gill scored 27 runs off 19 balls.

India’s triumph was a comprehensive one, capping off a highly successful tournament for them. They had a flawless record in the group stage and had previously defeated Sri Lanka twice, including in the final match. This victory in the Asia Cup 2023 served as a morale boost for the team as they prepared for the upcoming ODI World Cup 2023, which is scheduled to take place in India later this year.
