After five years, India won the Asia Cup as Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill led their team to victory. Rains caused the match to be postponed, but no one realized that the main storm was still to come. Mohammed Siraj, who claimed six wickets in seven overs, tore through Sri Lankan hitters like a hurricane. The Sri Lankan squad is gone for just 50 runs after Hardik Pandya claimed three important wickets.

Siraj matched the records of Chaminda Vaas of Sri Lanka (against Bangladesh in 2003), Mohammad Sami of Pakistan (against New Zealand in 2003), and Adil Rashid of England (against the West Indies in 2019) by becoming the first player from India to capture four wickets in an over of men’s ODI since 2002. Siraj attained the milestone in a joint-faster time than Vaas and the American Ali Khan, requiring only 16 balls to claim his five wickets. Siraj has also taken the most Indian wickets in the first 10 overs of an ODI since 2002.
