India vs Sri Lanka Asia Cup Super 4 Highlights: IND defeated SL by 41 runs to book their place in the final of the tournament. Team India has won twice in a row in the past two days.
Rohit Sharma chose to bat first after winning the toss on a surface that was conducive to spin bowling, taking advantage of the powerplay. The captain himself made the decision to pursue the Lankan pacers, and he eventually scored a brilliant fifty to get the Men in Blue off to a flying start. But as soon as the ball began to spin, Sri Lanka recovered, with Charith Asalanka and Dunith Wellalage both taking four and five wickets, respectively. With a fantastic performance, Sri Lanka bowled out India for 213 runs.
In the chase, Sri Lanka lost a few wickets quickly thanks to Jasprit Bumrah's outstanding performance with the new ball. Then, Dhananjaya de Silva and Dunith Wellalage formed a significant partnership that might have given them the victory, but Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja took a combined six wickets to annihilate the Lankan batting order and aid India in winning by 41 runs. With the victory, India also attained qualification for the 2023 Asia Cup finals.
