Sri Lanka’s Asia Cup final hero Bhanuka Rajapaksa feels his knock worth 71* off 45 balls was one of the best he’s ever produced as it resuscitated the team’s innings from a precarious position and pushed them towards a formidable total. The hosts were down to 58 for 5 in the 9th over and were staring down the barrel until Rajapaksa rose to the occasion with aplomb. He and Wanindu Hasaranga forged a game-shaping stand worth 58 runs off 36 balls. Sri Lanka have enjoyed an excellent journey at this tournament that culminated in them securing their sixth Asia Cup title.
“The last ball six and the last over helped us with the momentum”
