India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: India lift the trophy!
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Rohit collects it from ACC president and BCCI secretary Jay Shah. He then hands it to the younger players in the squad, as the Indian captains have done since MS Dhoni began that tradition all those years back. Well, just over a month ago there were question marks all over the Indian lineup but over the course of this tournament India have played with a largely consistent XI. They have also shown that injuries to players, especially batters, is nothing more than an opportunity for a very talented younger player on the sidelines. It means that Shreyas Iyer may have to possibly fight for his place considering just how solid Ishan Kishan has looked, regardless of where he has batted. Their bowling lineup is currently screaming firepower thanks to Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj and Kuldeep Yadav. So much so that someone of Mohammed Shami's calibre and experience is not getting a spot. They have won their eighth Asia Cup title on a canter and sounded off a warning to all the other teams they will be hosting in the World Cup next month. This is their home and they won't be easy to beat. That's it from us for today and for this tournament, hope you had as much fun following it with us as we had in bringing it to you. Goodbye!Sep 17, 2023 07:14 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Rohit Sharma's thoughts
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: “Yeah was a great performance. To come out and play like that in the final shows the mental character. Great start with the ball and clinical finish with the bat. I was standing in the slips, and something we take pride in - our seamers have been working really hard. Very very clear in their mind. It was good to see that. Such a performance we will cherish for a long time. I never thought it's going to do that much. Comes down to the skillset of individuals. Siraj has to be given a lot of credit. Rare for seamers to move the ball in the air and off the pitch. He's coming off age. We did everything we could've achieved as a team in this tournament. Look forward to the series that is coming up in India, and then the World Cup. The way Hardik and Ishan batted in that pressure situation against Pakistan, and then KL and Virat getting hundreds. The way Gill has been batting. Guys have stood up at various stages.”Sep 17, 2023 07:07 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Dasun Shanaka talks
“It was outstanding bowling display from Siraj. I thought it'll be a good pitch for batters, but overcast conditions played a part. Tough day for us at the office. We could've tightened our technique, would've helped batters to settle in and free their arms later. Lots of positives. The way Sadeera and Kusal batted against spin, Also the way Asalanka batted. These three will score heavily in good batting conditions in India. We know how to bounce back from tough situations. We came into the final beating good sides. It's a big plus. Players will continue good cricket from last couple of years. I would like to thank supporters who came in numbers. Sorry about the fact we disappointed you. Still thanks for the great support. And congrats to the Indian team.”Sep 17, 2023 07:07 PM IST

India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Kuldeep wins player of the series
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: “From last one and a half years, been working on my rhythm. Being more aggressive through the crease. Loving my bowling. In T20s also the length matters a lot. It's about not thinking about wickets, just about the lengths. Have worked hard on that. Credit goes to Rohit bhai. He encouraged me to work on my speed. When fast bowlers give you couple of wickets in powerplay, it becomes easy for spinners.”Sep 17, 2023 07:01 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: What Siraj said
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: “No biryani here. Have been bowling well since a long time. Was missing the edges earlier. But found them today. The wicket was seaming earlier, but there was swing today. Thought that I will bowl fuller because of the swing. When there's good bonding between fast bowlers, it's helpful for the team. I was thinking it would be great if I could stop the boundary. My best spell. This cash prize goes to the groundsmen. This tournament wouldn't have been possible without them.”Sep 17, 2023 06:57 PM IST

India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: SL coach Chris Silverwood reflects
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: “It has been below par, the get bowled out the way we did is disappointing. Today we came up against a very high class bowling attack, Siraj and Bumrah were exceptional, they bowl at a good pace as well. But at the same time, this is our lacking as well. We came in here with some younger bowlers, we’ve seen some of them shine. Sadeera and Pathirana have really come through. I think we need to sleep on this and make some decisions tomorrow, best to assess this in the morning and discuss with the other coaching staff as well.”Sep 17, 2023 06:30 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Hardik Pandya says this is what the Indian players wanted
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: “As a group, we spoke about finishing games and throwing punches in the pressure situation. It was a good toss to lose, we wanted to bat as well. I think our new bowlers, especially Siraj bowled really well. He got it swinging and created a lot of chances. Nowadays in ODI cricket, the new ball has been swinging and we have been speaking about getting the most. The first few overs, the ball didn’t even hit the bat.”Sep 17, 2023 06:29 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Shardul Thakur's thoughts
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: “It (the match) got over within the blink of an eye. Couldn't get better than this. Bumrah started well and what a spell it was from Siraj. It was a brilliant effort from his side. Hardik got those last three wickets. It was a clinical performance by the bowlers. Gill and Ishan got done with the chase. I think it was more of a combination how we are going to play in the World Cup. KL (Rahul) scoring that ton against Pakistan, what a comeback for him. We feel that we are a settled side, everyone is ready to showcase their skills. Whenever I'll play I'll try to contribute for the team.”Sep 17, 2023 06:23 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: KL Rahul talks
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: “I was a bit worried a couple of weeks ago, but got to play some good games against competitive teams. Scored runs and was good with the gloves, a few boxes ticked for me. Hopefully this continues for the next couple of months. I have been playing in Bangalore since four months, beautiful wickets for batting there. Happy that I got to spend time in the middle, it was a good challenge. Playing spin will be important in the middle overs in the World Cup, looking forward to that challenge. It's good to play games where bowlers get help. Siraj was phenomenal. He did the job for us, and everyone else chipped in as well. We'll take this win.”Sep 17, 2023 06:20 PM IST

India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill open for India

India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Siraj speaks
“Feels like a dream. Last time I did the same against Sri Lanka at Trivandrum. Got four wickets early, couldn't get the five-for. Realised you get what's in your destiny. Did not try too much today. I have always looked for swing in white-ball cricket. Did not find much in the previous games. But today it was swinging, and I got more wickets with the outswinger. Wanted to make the batters drive.”Sep 17, 2023 05:11 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: THAT'S IT! SRI LANKA 50 ALL OUT!
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Second lowest total by Sri Lanka in their ODI history. The Sri Lankan scores are 2, 0, 17, 0, 0, 4, 0, 8, 13, and 0. The fourth highest run scorer are extras. Pandya goes short of a length outside off and Pathirana hits it straight to point. The Sri Lankan batters have been utterly shambolic today, India ruthless. Pandya bowls the first over from this end in this match with Siraj finally being taken off and he wipes off what remains of this lineup in the first two overs.Sep 17, 2023 05:08 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: OUT! Sri Lanka down to their last
Down to their last wicket now. Full outside off, thick edge and caught at first slip. Good catch there considering it came into his body at pace and he had to take it reverse cup.

India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: 50 UP FOR SRI LANKA!

India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Overthrows! 6 runs for SL
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Inside edge to fine leg, who throws it to the infield, Kohli collects it while standing near the striker's end and then takes a throw at the non-striker's end. He misses it by a mile and the ball carreens away to the boundary. The score becomes 47 and he probably wouldn't have done that had that not been the case. That also takes Sri Lanka past their record lowest total of 43 in their ODI history.Sep 17, 2023 04:59 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Seventh over over Siraj
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Not too many times have you seen one of the two opening bowlers limbering up to bowl his seventh consecutive over in ODIs but well, we can say the same about everything that has happened in this match thus far.

India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: OUT! Pandya joins the party

India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Dushan Hemantha, included in the squad in place of the injured Mahesh Theekshana, clips one off his pads. No one on the leg side as there are four slips, as you do in a Test match. Oh, wait a minute.Sep 17, 2023 04:43 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: GONE! SIRAJ TAKES SIX!
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: The pain just won't a go-go for Sri Lanka. And this time, it is Kusal Mendis, Sri Lanka's best, who is cleaned up. One has to say that this was coming, Mendis was pushing and prodding at everything. He prodded at this one as well but the ball nips in from outside off, flies between bat and body and clatters middle and off.
Mendis b Mohammed Siraj 17 (34), Sri Lanka 33/7 in 11.2 oversSep 17, 2023 04:40 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 31/6 in 10 overs
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Anyone out there who are saying they expected the score to be looking like this after the first 10 overs, of course you did, good for you. No wickets for Siraj in this over but there very nearly was one. Siraj induced an edge from Mendis off the fourth ball of the over, it ended up dying on Kohli at first slip. In fact that did look like something Rahul should have gone for but replays suggest that he may have been wrong-footed. Hardik Pandya now comes in for the 11th over.Sep 17, 2023 04:35 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka 30/6 in 9 overs
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Siraj will come back for his fifth over now. No surprises there.
Sri Lanka, meanwhile, are five runs away from the lowest score in ODI history in matches between full member nations. That was 35 from Zimbabwe against... wait for it... Sri Lanka! That match was in April 2004 and Chaminda Vaas had taken 4 wickets in that one while Farveez Maharoof took three. Sri Lanka won that by 9 wickets in 9.2 oversSep 17, 2023 04:31 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: EDGED AND FOUR!
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: The fourth ball of that over leaves the batter and takes the outsiude edge. It beats second slip and runs behind to the boundary.Sep 17, 2023 04:30 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR! There is Mendis still
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Second ball of the ninth from Bumrah, short ball outside off and Mendis punches it past backward point to the boundary.Sep 17, 2023 04:18 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Sri Lanka are 13/6 in 6 overs
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Well, India have not won a major title since 2018. They will have to do something utterly extraordinary to lose this one. After all, they have done something extraordinary for us to start making predictions about the result of this match just six overs into it. Sri Lanka's scorecard currently reads 2, 0, 5*, 0, 0, 4, 0 and 1*.Sep 17, 2023 04:15 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: OUT! SIRAJ HAS 5 ALREADY!
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Siraj you beauty! Cleans up captain Dasun Shanaka and now he has a fifer. Look away Sri Lanka fans, this is not pretty.
Shanaka b Mohammed Siraj 0 (4), Sri Lanka 12/6 in 5.4 oversSep 17, 2023 04:07 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: GONE! FOUR WICKETS IN THE SAME OVER FOR SIRAJ!
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: And now Dhananjaya has edged behind! This over reads W, 0, W, W, 4, W. How ridiculous is this start, have you seen anything like it? Siraj has taken four wickets in the fourth over of the match. The Sri Lankan captain Dasun Shanaka has to walk out and do an opener's job now.
Dhananjaya de Silva c Rahul b Mohammed Siraj 4 (2), Sri Lanka 12/5 in 4 oversSep 17, 2023 04:06 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: FOUR! Carnage at the Premadasa
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Dhananjaya drives the hat-trick ball down the ground. Siraj himself chases after it but the ball beats him to it. His teammates see the funny side of the fast bowler running like the wind after a delivery behind the ball racing to the boundary.Sep 17, 2023 04:03 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: GONE! Siraj on a hat-trick!
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Three wickets in four balls! Sri Lanka are four down in the fourth over. What on earth is going on?

India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: OUT! Another for Siraj!
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Shout for LBW and given! The batter has a long conversation with his partner and then takes the review. No bat at all and it is plumb on ball tracking. What a start this is for India
Samarawickrama lbw b Mohammed Siraj 0 (2), Sri Lanka 8/3 in 3.3 oversSep 17, 2023 03:57 PM IST
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: GONE! What a catch from Jadeja!
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: Screamer and Sri Lanka lose their second. Nissanka pushes at a length delivery from Siraj, who had started off with a maiden. Jadeja dives to his right and gets it with both hands.
