India vs Sri Lanka Asia Cup Final Highlights – 17 Sep 2023

Pitch and weather: This will be the sixth match in nine days at the R Premadasa Stadium, so a slow, turning surface is on the cards. However, the expected wet conditions could play a factor in how much the ball actually turns.

India vs Sri Lanka Highlights 2023, Sunday 17-9, 2023 Asia Cup Final (D/N), R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo.

Dasun Shanaka says there might be some turn in the afternoon, but it looks like a good batting track nevertheless. Gives credit to the selectors for putting together such a good, young team. Confirms that legspinner Dushan Hemantha will replace Theekshana.
Rohit Sharma says he would have batted first as well, but that he hopes to put pressure on the Lankan batters early on. He also takes confidence on the nearly-chase against Bangladesh, and is very happy about the form of Shubman Gill. Washington Sundar will come in for Axar Patel.
