The field is known to be excellent for India’s captain, Rohit Sharma. As the team played against Sri Lanka in the Super 4 match on Tuesday, his catching skills were instrumental in their performance. The Lankans put pressure on the Indian team, initially with the ball and then with bat, and they threatened the visitors until Dasun Shanaka was caught by the hosts. Ravindra Jadeja successfully got rid of Shanakkara, thanks to a superb catch from Rohi Sharma during the game.
Kohli is renowned for his heart-warming demeanor. His energetic displays and celebratory scenes during the fall of wickets bring immense joy to both his supporters and team-mates.
Kohli embraced Shanaka with great emotion after Rohit’s impressive diving low catch in the slips, which was considered by many to be the’moment of the day’ by fans.
With Shanaka’s dismissal, the Sri Lankan batting unit was able to handle the pressure and the entire team achieved an all-out score of 172 runs in 41.3 overs.
The most powerful bowlers for both teams were the spinners. India’s Kuldeep Yadav took 4wickets while Jadeja secured 2 wickets, while other wicket-takers included Jasprit Bumrah (2), Mohammed Siraj (1), and Hardik Pandya (1).
Dunith Wellalage was the standout performer for Sri Lanka with the ball, taking 5 significant wickets. Charith Asalanka also managed to take 4 wicketstände, while Maheesh Theekshana only managed one scalp.
The victory has guaranteed India a spot in the Asia Cup 2023 final. The second place will be secured by the match between Sri Lanka and Pakistan on Thursday.
