Watch- A Sri Lanka fan attacks another fan in Colombo stadium stands after IND vs SL Asia Cup 2023 game
IND vs SL match saw another action taking place off the field.
The match was an interesting one between two sides on a spin-friendly track, as India opted to bat first after Rohit Sharma won the toss. He led from the front, hitting 53 runs and adding 80 for the opening wicket with Shubman Gill.
However, after that, 20-years-old Dunith Wellalage had a field day as he removed Rohit, Shubman, and Virat Kohli (4) in quick succession and then picked up three more wickets to complete his maiden five-wicket haul in ODIs. Charith Asalanka also picked 4/18.
But thanks to Ishan Kishan (33), KL Rahul (39), and Akshar Patel (26), India posted a respectable 213 runs on the board.
Sri Lanka didn’t have it easy in the chase, as Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj peppered the top-order and blew them away with ease. Dhananjaya de Silva (41) and Dunith Wellalage (42) posed some resistance to Indian bowlers, but in the end, Kuldeep Yadav’s 4/43 ensured that Sri Lanka was bundled out for 172 runs and lost the game by 41 runs.
With this win, India qualified for the finals of Asia Cup 2023 as well.
