Asia Cup: India lose to Lanka, stare at elimination

Defending champions India went perilously close to elimination after a 6-wicket defeat against Sri Lanka in their super four stage match of the Asia Cup. The result left the Men in Blue at the mercy of the other teams to have a chance of making it to the final. It also meant that India skipper Rohit Sharma’s scintillating 41-ball 72 went in vain, as the islanders completed a chase of 174 with a ball to spare. India will be out of the tournament if Pakistan beat Afghanistan on Wednesday.
