India vs Sri Lanka Highlights: India beats Sri Lanka by 41 runs


Highlights of India vs. Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2023

As predicted by the pitch conditions, Sri Lankan spinners played a crucial role in the match on September 12. Spinners Dunith Wellalage and Charith Asalanka from Sri Lanka managed to take all 9 Indian wickets, causing India's strong batting lineup to crumble, with the team falling short of 200 runs at Colombo's R. Premadasa Stadium.

Despite winning the toss and opting to bat first, Indian openers struggled against Sri Lanka's pace attack. However, when spinners entered the game, the dynamics shifted, and wickets began to tumble rapidly. Dunith Wellalage made a significant impact by taking 5 wickets, dismissing Shubman Gill, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Hardik Pandya.

Meanwhile, Charith Asalanka claimed 4 wickets, accounting for Ishan Kishan, Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah, and Kuldeep Yadav. Only three Indian players managed to cross the 30-run mark: Rohit Sharma (53), Ishan Kishan (33), and KL Rahul (39). By the end of the 47th over, rain interrupted play with India at 197/9. The pitch was covered, and the rain persisted.

After the rain delay and the match resumed, Sri Lankan pacers quickly wrapped up the Indian innings at 213. Sri Lanka's Dunith Wellalage took 5 wickets, Charith Asalanka claimed 4, and Maheesh Theekshana took 1. Sri Lanka was left with a target of 214 runs to win in 50 overs.

In pursuit of the 214-run target, Sri Lanka initially lost 5 wickets to Indian pacers Jasprit Bumrah (2) and Mohammed Siraj (1). Later on, Kuldeep Yadav (4), Ravindra Jadeja (2), and Hardik Pandya (1) combined to dismantle the Sri Lankan innings, securing India's victory by a margin of 41 runs. Apart from Dhananjaya de Silva (41) and Dunith Wellalage (42), no other Sri Lankan batter managed to withstand the Indian bowling attack. [no_toc]
