After India won by 41 runs against Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 match led by Rohit Sharma, fans got into a fight in Colombo.
Team India secured a dominant 41-run victory over Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 match at Colombo’s R. Premadasa Stadium, securing their place in the upcoming final. After opting to bat first, Rohit Sharma’s team managed to set a target of 213 runs but efficiently bowled out Sri Lanka for 172 in the 42nd over, clinching their second consecutive Super 4 win.
However, post-match, tensions flared in the stands as a viral video depicted a fan wearing Sri Lankan colors rushing toward an Indian supporter, resulting in a physical fight to break out. Eventually, bystanders intervened and urged both fans to exit the stadium premises.
After the Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 match, Sri Lanka’s captain, Dasun Shanaka, expressed his confidence in young all-rounder Dunith Wellalage’s performance against India.
Left-arm spinner Wellalage was the standout performer, slicing through India’s top order and earning his maiden 5-wicket haul. He single-handedly dismantled the formidable Indian batting lineup, claiming the key wickets of Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Hardik Pandya.
In a game that saw India’s bowling unit collectively halt Sri Lanka’s 13-match ODI unbeaten streak and secure their spot in the final with a game to spare, both spinners and pacers played pivotal roles.
