The R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo is buzzing with excitement as two cricketing giants, India and Sri Lanka, are set to lock horns in the much-anticipated final of the Asia Cup 2023 on Sunday.

Sri Lanka secured their spot in the final with a nail-biting victory against Pakistan in the Super Four stage. Even as rain curtailed the match to a 42-over contest, Pakistan's Mohammad Rizwan delivered a stellar performance with an unbeaten 86, and in tandem with Iftikhar Ahmed's 47, they took their side to a strong 252 for 7.

Yet, the Lankan Lions, led by Kusal Mendis, who scored a brilliant 91 and Charith Asalanka's 49, managed to chase down the target, clinching victory on the last ball.

India's road to the final witnessed a minor hiccup as they faced an unexpected defeat at the hands of Bangladesh, who fell short of making it to the final. Despite a shaky start, Bangladesh managed to post 265, thanks to a game-changing century partnership between Shakib Al Hasan and Towhid Hridoy.

The Men in Blue's chase seemed promising, especially with Shubman Gill's mesmerizing century and Axar Patel's fiery hits towards the end. Unfortunately, they fell short by a mere six runs.
