After a disappointing start to the tournament, Sri Lanka have established their dominance in Asian cricket. Sri Lanka won the title match against Pakistan by 23 runs. Sri Lanka became the new champion of Asia.
Sri Lanka, who reached the final, broke many illusions and misconceptions in the tournament as the ‘dark horse’ team. In the final match, Pakistan’s fielding looked very poor. Many catches were dropped in this match.
Pakistani fast bowlers damaged Sri Lanka by taking early wickets. Experienced batsmen Kosal Mendis and Patham Nissanka failed to score in this match. Pakistan fast bowler Haris Rauf dismissed Nissanka and Dhanushka Gunathilaka to break Sri Lanka’s batting order. Meanwhile, a funny incident happened during the match.

In the sixth over of the match, Haris Rauf bowled a brilliant yorker to Bhanuka Rajapaksa and the Pakistani players strongly appealed for lbw, but the umpire declared it not out. Pakistan captain Babar Azam went for DRS and the third umpire also declared the batsman not out, but Shadab Khan was eager for the wicket, so he forcibly grabbed the umpire’s hand.
