IND vs SL, Asia Cup 2023 Final: India pacer Mohammed Siraj destroyed Sri Lankan batting in Asia Cup 2023 final as he snapped up four wickets in five deliveries at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.
Forced to bowl first, India shredded Sri Lanka's top-order with Siraj's furious new-ball burst. Siraj first dismissed Pathum Nissanka, then Charith Asalanka, Sadeera Samarawickrama, and Dhananjaya de Silva, leaving Sri Lanka reeling at 12 for five in four overs.
India bundled out Sri Lanka for its second-lowest ODI total ever.
Dasun Shanaka's side was blown away by a brilliant Mohammed Siraj spell after winning the toss and opting to bat first. Sri Lanka succumbed to 50 in 15.2 overs.
The total was the lowest ever in men's Asia Cup ODIs, breaking Bangladesh's past record of 87 all out against Pakistan in 2000.
Sri Lanka's lowest 50-over momentum came in 2012, when it was bowled out for 43 in 20.1 overs, culminating in a 258-run defeat.
