Coming to the game, opting to bat after winning the toss, Sri Lanka's decision soon turned out to be their Achilles' heel. The team folded for an unbelievably low 50 runs in just 15.2 overs, marking their nadir against the robust Indian attack.
The star of the evening, Mohammed Siraj ran through the Lankan lineup, snaring six wickets in an almost dreamlike seven-over spell. Amidst the ruins, only Kusal Mendis and Dushan Hemantha could muster double digits.
With a paltry target ahead, India's opening duo of Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan made quick work of the chase. Consuming just 6.1 overs, the pair demonstrated an impeccable combination of aggression and finesse, scoring 27 and 23 runs respectively.
This splendid victory not only clinched India's 8th Asia Cup title but also cemented its reputation as a cricketing powerhouse in the continent.
