Dangerous Bowling by Mohammed Siraj, and Mohammed Siraj is the Player of the Match for his stunning bowling performance. His figures of 6 for 21 from his seven overs paved the way for a comfortable India win. He says that he was bowling well for a few matches and today the batters edged the ball. He adds that there was swing, so he was bowling a little fuller. Adds that the pitch was a bit damp and favoured the pacers. He credits Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya for bowling brilliantly and supporting him well. He says that he ran behind the ball to the boundary to save runs for his team. Ends by dedicating this cash prize to the groundsmen for maintaining the ground well and says that without them the tournament wouldn’t have happened.
INDIA WIN THE 2023 ASIA CUP! A 5-year wait for a Men’s Asia Cup title comes to an end for this cricket-crazy nation! It’s a walk in the park, quite literally, for Rohit Sharma and Co. as they cruise past Sri Lanka to lift the Asia Cup for the eighth time in history. The Men in Blue have lived up to the favourites tag and have emerged as the deserving winners of this continental event. Coming to the chase, Ishan Kishan was sent in place of Rohit Sharma to open alongside Shubman Gill and the southpaw certainly repaid the faith shown by his skipper. In their pursuit of a meagre total of 51, both young guns were positive from the start and played proper cricketing shots. India steamrolled home with 263 balls to spare, their biggest victory in terms of balls remaining.
