India vs Sri Lanka, Asia Cup 2023 Final: IND vs SL head-to-head record and form guide

Sep 17, 2023 07:47 AM IST

Ahead of the big final in Colombo between India and Sri Lanka, we take a look at the head-to-head record and the forms of the two teams.

Team India will be aiming to end their five-year trophyless run in multi-nation events when they take on defending champions Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup final on Sunday in Colombo. While the talk leading up to the final has been on Axar Patel and the multiple injuries he incurred on Friday, Sri Lanka too will be without the services of their premier spinner Maheesh Theekshana owing to a hamstring injury.

A look at India's trophy cabinet will reveal that the team has gone without winning a trophy since 2018, when Rohit Sharma, now the full-time all-format skipper, led a second-string side to Asia Cup glory in Dubai by beating Bangladesh in the final by three wickets. Adding to that, the end of India's wait for a trophy haul in a multi-nation event will go well given that it will happen less than three weeks before the ODI World Cup at home.

The Men in Blue have been in an impressive form in the ongoing Asia Cup 2023 where they have lost just one match while their opener against Pakistan in Pallekele was washed out.
