The Asia Cup 2023 final is on the horizon, with India and Sri Lanka set to clash at Colombo’s R. Premadasa Stadium this Sunday. India is vying for its seventh Asia Cup title, while Sri Lanka is determined to add a sixth crown to their collection.

India’s journey to the final was marked by victories over Pakistan and Sri Lanka in their initial two Super 4 matches. They made a resounding statement by defeating Pakistan with a massive 228-run margin. However, their encounter with Sri Lanka saw them bowled out for a modest 213 runs, but their bowlers staged a remarkable comeback to secure a 41-run win. Despite a narrow six-run loss to Bangladesh, India’s confidence remains unshaken.

Sri Lanka’s path to the final included a triumph over Bangladesh and a loss to India. They clinched their spot in the final with a heart-pounding two-wicket victory (DLS method) against Pakistan, sealing the win off the final delivery, largely thanks to Charith Asalanka’s efforts.
