Ugly Brawl Breaks Out Between Fans During India vs Sri Lanka Asia Cup Super 4 Tie | WATCH
Sri Lanka, but the Men in Blue showed Sri Lanka who was boss by beating the co-hosts of the Asia Cup. This put the Men in Blue in the final.
Dasun Shanaka and his team had won 13 straight games by bowling out their opponents. However, when they played India, the defending champs lost for the first time in 13 games as the Indian team won by 41 runs.
A video that went popular on social media showed two fans getting into a brutal fistfight during the Asia Cup Super 4 match in Colombo's R. Premadasa Stadium on Tuesday, September 12.
The 33-second video shows two fans getting into a fight while people around them try to break them up. One of the fans was wearing the Sri Lankan team's shirt. Even though no one knew for sure why the two fans were fighting so hard, the video of the fight went viral on social media.
At the start of the video, a woman who looks like she's wearing a police outfit is talking with a group of people. Later, a man on the left suddenly strikes another person as they're fighting and others try to pull them apart.
Even though we don't know for sure when the fight happened, it seems to have happened after the match between India and Sri Lanka, which had a good turnout because there were a lot of empty seats in the popular video.
The Indian spin wizard Kuldeep Yadav was able to change the match in India's favour again with his four-wicket haul. This came a day after his five-wicket haul helped India beat Pakistan by 228 runs in an ODI for their biggest win ever against Pakistan.
The best bowler for the Lankan Lions was Dunith Wellalage, who got his first five-wicket haul in an ODI and helped the Indian team score only 213 runs. Rohit Sharma, the captain of India, hit a fifty, and Ishan Kishan and KL Rahul made important efforts that helped the Men in Blue reach a par score.
Wellalage also did a great job with the bat. He hit a perfect 42-run knock, but he ran out of partners at the other end, and India got the co-hosts out for 172.
