Colombo, Sep 17: India won the Asia Cup by beating Sri Lanka by 10 wickets in the final at R. Premadasa Stadium on Sunday.

Mohammed Siraj became only the second bowler to take a six-fer in a men's ODI Asia Cup final after Ajantha Mendis, picking 6-21 in a deadly spell of bowling as India shot out Sri Lanka for just 50 in the title clash.

After play resumed at 3:40 pm, following a rain delay, Siraj got massive help from movement off the pitch, making the ball talk both ways and leaving Sri Lanka batters bamboozled as he picked a magnificent career-best 6-21 in seven overs, including four scalps coming in his second over of the game.

Apart from Siraj blowing away Sri Lankan batters and becoming the first Indian bowler to take four wickets in as many balls, Hardik Pandya took three wickets and Jasprit Bumrah had a lone scalp to his name as the Indian fast-bowlers took all ten wickets in bowling out Sri Lanka for their second-lowest ODI total ever and their lowest score ever against India.

Siraj grabbed his five-wicket haul in 16 balls by getting late movement at a fuller delivery to swing past Dasun Shanaka’s outside edge and sent the off-stump on a cartwheel ride.

Pandya joined the wicket-takers list by bouncing out Dunith Wellalage, giving Rahul a simple catch on the top edge. He took out the remaining two wickets to end Sri Lanka’s innings at 50 in 92 legal balls.

India chased the target in just 7 overs with both the openers Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan remaining unbeaten.
