- 18:30 (IST)Asia Cup Final Live: "It was a good toss to lose," says Hardik"As a group, we spoke about finishing games and throwing punches in the pressure situation. It was a good toss to lose, we wanted to bat as well. I think our new bowlers, especially Siraj bowled really well. He got it swinging and created a lot of chances. Nowadays in ODI cricket, the new ball has been swinging and we have been speaking about getting the most. The first few overs, the ball didn’t even hit the bat," said Hardik Pandya.
- 18:28 (IST)IND vs SL Live: 'Match over in the blink of an eye'"It (the match) got over within the blink of an eye. Couldn't get better than this.

We feel that we are a settled side, everyone is ready to showcase their skills. Whenever I'll play I'll try to contribute for the team," said Shardul Thakur.

Realised you get what's in your destiny. Did not try too much today. I have always looked for swing in white-ball cricket. Did not find much in the previous games.

- 17:02 (IST)Live Cricket Score: Poor fielding!Dushan Hemantha got an inside edge on a Mohammed Siraj delivery and tried to take a couple. Virat Kohli who collected the throw at the striker's end, tried to hit the stumps at the other end but missed it. There was no fielder backing it and the ball ran away for a four, giving a total of six runs to Sri Lanka on the delivery.
