India wrapped up the Asia Cup 2023 final in less than three hours thanks to Mohammed Siraj's heroics as they crushed Sri Lanka by 10 wickets to clinch a record-extending 8th title at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Sunday.

Siraj single-handedly handed the trophy on a platter to Indian captain Rohit Sharma with his maiden six-wicket haul which helped them bow out Sri Lanka for just 50 runs in 15.2 overs. Siraj's record-breaking six-for was combined with three wickets from all-rounder Hardik Pandya and one from Jasprit Bumrah. India now have 8 Asia Cup titles, two more than Sri Lanka. This was also their biggest win in ODI cricket in terms of balls to spare.

It is only the third instance when a team has won an ODI final by 10 wickets and the biggest victory in terms of balls to spare in an ODI final - 263. All-rounder Shardul Thakur, who didn't play the final, summed up India's victory perfectly after the match which started at 3.40 pm and finished at 6.06 pm.
