Asia Cup 2023: 'I said at the start...': Sourav Ganguly's X post after India's triumph

Former Indian cricket captain and ex-BCCI chief Sourav Ganguly has lauded Rohit Sharma-led Team India after they steamrolled Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2023 final to lift the title on Sunday.

Ganguly, who has always believed Team India as a mighty force, tweeted, "I said at the start .. this is a very strong team .. they looked superb throughout ..well done team india.. Rohit sharma second Asia cup title .. well done Rohit , Dravid , support staff selectors and all the team members @bcci."

India's pace bowler Mohammed Siraj scalped six wickets to remove the Sri Lankan top order batting dismissing the entire squad for a humiliating 50.

Siraj removed Pathun Nissanka, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Charith Asalanka and Dhananjaya de Silva in the 4th over to put Sri Lanka on the mat with 12/5.

In 6th over as well, Siraj was on fire cleaning up Captain Dasun Shanaka with a beauty and doing the Ronaldo celebration thereof.

He also knocked over Kusal Mendis with a fast inswinger for 17 off 34 balls with three boundaries.

India chased down the target in just 6.1 overs riding on Shubman Gill's unbeaten 27 and Ishan Kishan's 23 with the fall of no wicket.
