Asia Cup IND vs SL Finals: Siraj and Pandya’s bowling brilliance sets record as Sri Lanka collapse

In a cricketing spectacle that will be etched in memory, Mohammad Siraj displayed an extraordinary bowling performance that left Sri Lanka reeling. This dismal performance saw Sri Lanka being bowled out for their lowest-ever ODI total against India. The early breakthrough was provided by Jasprit Bumrah, who removed the dangerous Kusal Perera, but it was Siraj who wreaked havoc on the Sri Lankan lineup.

Siraj’s spell was nothing short of sensational. He extracted remarkable movement off the pitch, rendering the Sri Lankan batsmen helpless against the swinging and seaming ball. The new ball was his canvas, and he painted a masterpiece with it. The Sri Lankan batters found themselves in a quagmire, unable to decipher his deliveries.

As the match progressed, records tumbled, and Siraj’s name soared. He concluded his spell with a staggering six wickets to his credit, and it was in one remarkable over that he turned the tide of the game. Four wickets fell in a breathtaking six-ball sequence, sealing the fate of the contest.

Hardik Pandya, too, joined the party with his incisive bowling, clinching three crucial wickets. As a result of this relentless assault, Sri Lanka found themselves bowled out for a paltry 50 runs.

With such a low target to chase, the question on everyone’s mind was how quickly India could reach the finish line. The stage was set for India to assert their dominance and secure a resounding victory.
