Celebration of Winning the Asia Cup
On Tuesday, hundreds of supporters flocked to the streets to cheer Sri Lanka as they rode in an open-top bus in a victory parade to celebrate winning the Asia Cup.
As Pakistan was defeated by Sri Lanka by 23 runs in the Asia Cup final on Sunday in Dubai, Bhanuka Rajapaksa’s magnificent half-century, furious spells from bowler Pramod Madushan and spinner Wanindu Hasaranga helped Sri Lanka win their sixth Asia Cup championship.

Without a doubt, it feels fantastic. We succeeded after everyone on the team gave it their all. Dasun Shanaka, the captain of Sri Lanka, whose team also experienced a warm greeting upon landing at the island’s main airport in Katunayake, stated.
Due to Sri Lanka’s continuous economic problems, the Asia Cup was originally scheduled to take place there but was instead moved to the UAE.
