India and Sri Lanka will face each other in the final of the Asia Cup 2023 on Sunday, September 17 at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.

Dimuth Wellalage picked up five wickets to help bowl out India for a total of 213 runs. Charith Asalanka also picked up four wickets. However, the Sri Lankan batsmen botched up. Apart from Dhananjaya de Silva and Wellalage, both of whom scored in 40s, no other batsman stepped up as Sri Lanka eventually lost the game by 41 runs.

Batting first, Bangladesh posted a total of 265 runs on the board after Shakib Al Hasan and Towhid Hridoy scored half centuries. In reply, India were helped by a century from Shubman Gill but eventually fell short of the target by just six runs.

 India vs Sri Lanka: Colombo Weather and Pitch Report

While the spinners benefit immensely from the surface at the R Premadasa Stadium, the pacers have also been getting help from the overcast conditions. Anything above 280 is a good total on this ground. The captain winning the toss is likely to opt to bat first because in three matches of the Asia Cup 2023, the teams batting first won the game. 

The weather will not be too favourable. There is an 80% chance of rain during the final.

 India vs Sri Lanka Match Prediction

Sri Lanka’s greatest strength will be their spin bowling department who can make the most of the pitch conditions in Colombo. However, India have a stronger squad overall and their batsmen can put up a good fight against the Lankan bowlers. The result of the match can go either way.
