India pacer Mohammed Siraj, who was in his red-hot form during the Asia Cup 2023 final, dedicated his Player of the Final award and cash prize to the Sri Lankan ground staff. India defeated Sri Lanka in a lop-sided summit clash on September 17, Sunday, and went on to lift their eighth Asia Cup. During the match, the Indian pacer clinched six wickets by conceding 21 runs and played a crucial role in their team's triumph in the tournament after five years.
Siraj was awarded as the Player of the Final for his on-field heroics. The 29-year-old pacer dedicated the award to the Sri Lankan groundmen, who were on their toes in all the rain-affected fixtures.
