New Delhi: Rohit Sharma-led Indian cricket team defeated Dasun Shanaka’s Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2023 Final by 10 wickets to win their record 8th title. The Men in Blue showed one of their most dominant game and outclassed the defending champions in all departments at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, on Sunday. First Siraj’s deadly six-fer bowled out Lanka on a paltry score of 50 and then Indian openers Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan ensured a 10-wicket win for the Indian team.

Mohammed Siraj produced a sensational spell as India thrashed Sri Lanka by 10 wickets to win the Asia Cup here on Sunday. Siraj helped India dismiss Sri Lanka for a paltry 50 with a six-wicket haul in the final.
