Mohammed Siraj Equals Lasith Malinga Record: In a high-stakes clash at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Sunday, Indian pacer Mohammed Siraj delivered a scintillating performance that left Sri Lanka’s top-order in tatters during the Asia Cup 2023 final. India, sent in to bowl first, witnessed Siraj’s masterful new-ball burst, where he managed to secure four wickets in just one over, thereby equaling the legendary Lasith Malinga’s record.

Siraj’s onslaught began with the dismissal of Pathum Nissanka, who could only muster 2 runs from 4 balls before being caught by the ever-alert Ravindra Jadeja. Remarkably, Siraj repeated the feat by sending Nissanka back to the pavilion once more in a carbon copy of the previous dismissal, leaving Sri Lanka reeling.

The young Indian pacer continued to wreak havoc as he sent Charith Asalanka packing for a golden duck, courtesy of an excellent catch by wicketkeeper Ishan Kishan. The misery didn’t end there for Sri Lanka, as Sadeera Samarawickrama found himself dismissed for a golden duck, falling victim to a leg-before-wicket (lbw) decision.

What sets Siraj’s spell apart is that he achieved this astonishing feat in a single over, emulating the legendary Lasith Malinga’s record for the most wickets taken in a single over in a T20 international.

Siraj’s exceptional display of pace and precision had Sri Lanka in dire straits, with the scoreboard reading a daunting 12 for five in just four overs. His ability to dismantle the Lankan top-order in such emphatic fashion turned the tide in India’s favor early in the crucial final match.

As the Asia Cup 2023 final continues, Mohammed Siraj’s stellar performance serves as a testament to his burgeoning talent and the valuable contributions he brings to the Indian cricket team, solidifying his status as one of the country’s premier fast bowlers. His fiery spell, which equaled the record set by a bowling legend like Malinga, has set the stage for an enthralling contest, with India firmly in control at this juncture of the game. Cricket enthusiasts around the world eagerly await to see how this high-stakes encounter unfolds.
