It's finished! India has won the Asia Cup for the seventh time after defeating Sri Lanka by 8 wickets. Smriti Mandhana and captain Harmanpreet Kaur wrapped up the game in fine manner. Sri Lanka had 65/9 at the end of 20 overs. Since the beginning of this innings, it has been an all-Indian affair. Sri Lanka didn't go all out in the opening frame. Renuka Thakur's spellwork was outstanding. The team captained by Chamari Athapaththu struggled because they were 5 down during the powerplay. After winning the toss, Sri Lanka decided to start batting. The starting lineup for Sri Lanka is the same as it was for the previous game. India, on the other hand, has only changed one thing: Radha Yadav has been replaced by Dayalan Hemalatha.
