Mohammed Siraj’s six for twenty-one versus Sri Lanka helped India win the Asia Cup for a record-extending eighth time


India won the championship with 263 balls remaining and all 10 of their wickets still in tact after completing their target in just 6.1 overs. In terms of the number of remaining balls, this was India’s largest winning margin. The previous record was set in 2001 against Kenya, when they successfully tracked down a 91-point target with 231 extra balls.Ishan Kishan was moved up in the order to bat with Shubman Gill to start the inning.Although there was no indication of rain at the toss, a drizzle caused the start of play to be delayed by 40 minutes. Before Mohammed Siraj put on one of the finest ever displays of fast bowling in the subcontinent, Jasprit Bumrah was the first to strike, dismissing Kusal Perera in the first over.
