India beat Sri Lanka by 41 runs in a low-scoring thriller and booked their berth in the final of the Asia Cup 2023. In the process, they played three back-to-back days of cricket at the end of which they made it to the final of the Asian tournament.

Chasing 214 to win, Sri Lanka were bowled out for 172 with the Lankan batters adding two good partnerships. First Charith Asalanka and Sadeera Samarawickrama added a 43-run stand and then the partnership of 63 runs between Dhananjaya de Silva (41) and Dunith Wellalage (42*) threatened to take the game away from India.

However, with Jadeja dismissing de Silva, Kuldeep cleaned up the Sri Lankan tail to finally win the match by 41 runs. The Indian spinners conjugated for six wickets with Kuldeep picking four and Jadeja two. Bumrah picked two while Hardik and Siraj picked one each.
