The Asia Cup 2023 concluded with India becoming the champions with an emphatic win over Sri Lanka in the final which was played on Sunday at the R Premadasa Stadium, in Colombo. The final proved to be a one-sided affair as Mohammed Siraj’s 6/21 and Hardik Pandya’s 3/3 completely decimated Sri Lanka for a paltry 50 runs in 15.2 overs. Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan then achieved the paltry target in 6.1 overs, as India won the final by 10 wickets and became the Asian champions for a record eighth time.
The Asia Cup 2023 saw many players continuing their good form from previous matches. On the other hand, some players got their form back and made consistent runs or picked wickets in most encounters. Some contributed with both the bat and the ball and in the field as well.
As the tournament concluded on a high, let’s have a look at the high points for the players in the Asia Cup 2023 as well and check out the 11 best performers who made their team proud.
Here is the Best XI of the Asia Cup 2023 tournament:
1. Rohit Sharma (C)
Indian captain Rohit Sharma was at his best with both the bat and in captaincy as well. He won his second Asia Cup title in the ODI format and it was a huge comeback from the Indian team, which had missed out last edition. India defeated Sri Lanka in the final by 10 wickets in a dominating fashion.
With the bat, Rohit Sharma made 194 runs in 5 innings with three half-centuries to his name. His highest score was 74* and he hit 21 fours and 11 sixes in the tournament. As for his captaincy, Rohit didn’t let the pressure off in crunch matches, especially against Pakistan in the Super 4s and then against Sri Lanka in the final.
