India vs Sri Lanka Live Score: No Breather For Team India
India vs Sri Lanka Live Score, Live Cricket Score of Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 Today’s Match Live Updates: At the time of writing, it has been less than 15 hours since the Indian men's cricket team produced a spectacular performance, and that too, against their arch-rivals, Pakistan. It resulted in a 228-run victory, and more importantly, two crucial points.
In a competition where matches are coming thick and fast, that win, however, is already an incident for the history books by now, as the focus has already shifted to the next challenge for Rohit Sharma's team – in the form of co-hosts Sri Lanka.
Dasun Shanaka's side won their first Super Four match against Bangladesh by 21 runs, on the back of two consecutive wins in the group stage. Moreover, they have won all of their last 13 ODI fixtures, and whilst it can be argued that many of those matches were against comparatively weaker opponents at the 2023 Cricket World Cup qualifiers, the tag of defending champions of the Asia Cup prove their mettle.
India, hence, will be wary of the task at hand, but considering the jam-packed schedule, they might opt to rest a few key players. The likes of Suryakumar Yadav and Mohammed Shami offer reliable services as back-ups, albeit Shreyas Iyer will be unavailable once again, owing to back spasms.

Kuldeep Yadav has cleaned up Sri Lanka's tail by dismissing both Kasun Rajitha and Matheesha Pathirana, to secure a 41-run victory for his team.
With this win, India have qualified for the final of the 2023 Asia Cup!
Spare a thought for Dunith Wellalage, for he remains unbeaten on a fighting 42, after picking up five wickets. Sri Lanka would want their teenage asset to produce something on similar lines against Pakistan on 14 September, as that match is now essentially a semi-final contest.
