The Indian team dismantled Sri Lanka in the final of the Women's Asia Cup 2022 to clinch a record seventh title in the history of the competition. Indian fast bowling sensation Renuka Singh, who shone in the titular clash, was involved in an endearing incident during the post-match celebrations, which went viral on social media.

Harmanpreet Kaur's side smashed their neighbors by eight wickets in a one-sided contest after restricting Sri Lanka to just 65 runs in their first innings. India's young pacer Renuka Singh was the tormentor in chief, scalping three wickets in her three-over spell conceding a meager five runs.

The right-arm pacer was named the player of the match for her tremendous efforts in the finale. But she was nervous and enquired about a translator since the conversation was going to be in English. A seemingly hesitant Renuka was egged on by her teammates including skipper Harmanpreet Kaur which gave her the confidence to commence the interview without a translator.

Just focused on my basics and got success: Renuka Singh

Renuka Singh has been a real find for the Indian team, who are looking to fill the void left by the newly retired Jhulan Goswami. While Renuka has still a long way to go ahead to replace the legendary pacer, she has been impressive for the blues since the turn of the year. She was also influential in India's historic ODI series triumph last month, scalping consecutive four wicket-hauls in the second and third ODI of the series.

Apart from grabbing three wickets, the prodigious pacer opened the floodgates with brilliant work in the field, running out the Sri Lanka skipper. She then grabbed three wickets in three deliveries to complete a team hat-trick.

"Very happy because the last few games I didn't bowl well. I practiced with my coach and the staff, and they really helped me get back my rhythm. Just focussed on my basics and got success. My whole team supported me really well, and credit should go to my captain, coach, and the staff," she said in the post-match interview.
