Rohit Sharma is aiming to win the title for the eighth time and faces a tough challenge from Sri Lanka

Today India will face hosts Sri Lanka in the final match of the Asia Cup. This will be the eighth time that India and Sri Lanka will meet in the Asia Cup final. So far, in the seven finals between the two teams, Team India has won four times while the Sri Lankan team has won three times. Team India has won the Asia Cup title a record seven times. However, Sri Lanka has a chance of equaling this record by defeating India.

This time the Sri Lankan team surprised everyone and made it to the finals. Due to the injury of a star all-rounder like Hasaranga, there were speculations that the road to the final would be difficult for the Sri Lankan team. But thanks to the strength of young players, Sri Lanka defeated a strong team like Pakistan and secured a place in the final.

India’s performance in the Asia Cup was mixed. The Indian batsmen experienced a flop show in the game against Pakistan in the group stage. After that, Team India made a brilliant comeback against Nepal. In the fourth round match, India defeated Pakistan by 228 runs. India also managed to easily defeat Sri Lanka in the fourth round match. In the final game of the fourth round, the experiment proved costly for Team India. India lost to Bangladesh by 6 runs in a very tough game.

Team India cannot afford to experiment in the final. Experienced players like Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Siraj will definitely return to the team for this game. Vice-captain Hardik Pandya will also be included in the starting XI for the final. Axar Patel is out due to injury. Given the nature of the pitch, Team India can field three spinners in the final.
