“Parrots would fly away”: Virender Sehwag’s out-of-the-box suggestion after Sri Lanka win Asia Cup

Dasun Shanaka-led Sri Lanka impressed everyone and the team won the Asia Cup for the sixth time after beating Pakistan by 23 runs in the final. In the final, Sri Lanka were up against it at 58/5, batting first, but Bhanuka Rajapaksa’s unbeaten 71 helped Sri Lanka to 170/6 in 20 overs and then Pramod Madushan’s four-wicket haul helped Pakistan to 147. But covered. As a result, Sri Lanka won the match by 23 runs.

It is important to note that Sri Lanka do not have direct qualification for the upcoming T20 World Cup, and will have to play the first qualifier to seal the qualification for the group stage. Former India batsman Virender Sehwag has come out with an out-of-the-box suggestion that it will be interesting that if the team loses against a team that does not qualify, it also loses its qualification for the World Cup.

“Well played Sri Lanka, deserving champions of #AsiaCup. Imagine they haven’t qualified for next month’s T20 World Cup. Wouldn’t it be interesting if you lose to a team that didn’t qualify you Sehwag. tweeted.

As Sri Lanka won the final, Twitter was flooded with congratulatory messages.

Sri Lanka, a country torn to pieces after the death of democracy while facing massive financial turmoil, found 11 deserving heroes on the cricket pitch as the unchallenged bunch of Dasun Shanaka clinched their sixth Asia Cup title here on Sunday. Beat Pakistan by 23 runs to win.


It was a victory that was not just about cricket but went beyond that which had deep historical and political significance.
