In Asia Cup final between India and Sri Lanka, fast bowler Mohammed Siraj delivered a performance that will be in the record books of cricket history. In just a single over, Siraj got upon the Sri Lankan batting lineup, sending four key batsmen back to the pavilion, leaving the Sri Lankan team struggling at 12/5 after just five overs.
The match had been highly anticipated, with fans from both nations eagerly awaiting this clash of giant teams of Asia. However, the early stages of the game clearly favored India as Siraj’s spellbinding over unfolded.
It was Siraj’s second over that turned the match in India’s favor. With smooth, he removed the top order of Sri Lanka’s batting order: Pathum Nissanka, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Dhananjaya, and Charith Asalanka. The crowd was left in awe of Siraj’s ability to move the ball both ways, creating a environment for the Sri Lankan batsmen where they feel disappointed.
