Jasprit Bumrah initiated the breakthrough with a wicket off the third ball of the match, setting the tone for the rest of the innings. Mohammed Siraj played a pivotal role by claiming six wickets in just seven overs, including an incredible four-wicket over. Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya contributed with three wickets in 2.2 overs.

After Sri Lanka’s poor performance in the Asia Cup Final 2023, netizens took to X (formerly Twitter) to share their reactions. Take a look at so reactions here:

In a conversation with a reporter, a delighted Mohammed Siraj expressed that this moment was a dream come true for him. “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,” Siraj said.
