India and Sri Lanka head into the final with divergent paths. India, having last tasted victory in the 2018 Asia Cup, thirsts for another title. Sri Lanka, currently 8th in the ODI rankings, yearns to prove they aren’t just underdogs. In a recent encounter, Sri Lanka showcased their prowess by restricting India to a paltry 213, only to falter in the chase. With a turning pitch expected for the final and the absence of key players for both teams, strategies will play a critical role.
