India reach Asia Cup final after ending Sri Lanka’s 13-match ODI winning streak | Cricket News


India booked their place in the Asia Cup final after ending Sri Lanka’s 13-match winning streak in ODI cricket with a 41-run win in Colombo.

India, a day after demolishing Pakistan by 228 runs on the same ground, successfully defended a total of 213 as Sri Lanka were dismissed for 172 in reply.

Rohit Sharma’s side will face the winners of Thursday’s match between Sri Lanka and Pakistan in Sunday’s final, with Bangladesh’s hopes of qualifying for the Super Four now over.

Summary of scores

India 213 all out in 49.1 overs: Rohit Sharma (53); Dunith Wellalage (5-40), Charith Asalanka (4-18)

Sri Lanka 172 all out in 41.3 overs: Dunith Wellalage (42no), Dhananjaya de Silva (41); Kuldeep Yadav (4-43)

Dunith Wellalage’s excellent all-round performance went in vain for Sri Lanka, with the 20-year-old left-arm spinner taking five wickets and scoring an unbeaten 42.

Wellalage dismissed five of India’s top six, removing Rohit Sharma (53), Shubman Gill (19) and Virat Kohli (3) as Rohit’s side slipped from 80-0 to 91-3.

The youngster then ended a half-century between KL Rahul (39) and Ishan Kishan (33) when he caught Rahul off his own bowling before also dismissing Hardik Pandya (5).

Sri Lanka, who had last been beaten in ODI cricket by Afghanistan in June, collapsed to 25-3 and then 99-6 in the chase before a stand of 63 between Wellalage and Dhananjaya de Silva (41) does not give them hope.

However, Sri Lanka lost their last four wickets for 10 runs once Dhananjaya sliced ​​Ravindra Jadeja at mid-off, with Indian spinner Kuldeep Yadav taking 4-43, a day after shredding Pakistan with a five-wicket haul .
