    Since winning the Asia Cup in 2018, India’s inability to master crunch matches and occasions has been startling. India reached semifinals of the 50-over World Cup in 2019 and the T20 World Cup in 2022, besides losing against New Zealand and Australia in the WTC finals in 2019 and 2023 respectively. The Indian team also failed to make their presence felt in last year’s Asia Cup, which was won by Sri Lanka. That event was played in T20 format.

    A victory in Colombo in the Asia Cup will boost their confidence ahead of the quadrennial big bash next month, as they also seek to end a 10-year-long ICC trophy drought.
