Team India registered a thumping 41-run victory over Sri Lanka in the Super 4 match of the Asia Cup 2023 to secure a place in the finals of the tournament, set to be played on Sunday, September 17 at R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo.
Meanwhile, an incident happened during the game involving Suryakumar Yadav, who came in as a substitute fielder and made a sensational catch off Hardik Pandya’s bowling to dismiss Maheesh Theekshana. However, during the wicket celebration, Yadav was spotted declining a handshake with Hardik Pandya.
While a section of fans claims that Hardik Pandya refrained from shaking hands with Suryakumar Yadav due to a finger injury that he sustained during the catch, others perceive it as a sign of a possible rift between the two players.

Hardik Pandya was the most economical bowler for India. His wicket count doesn’t tell the whole story, but he was a sensation, strangling the opposition’s runs and forcing them to give away their wickets to other bowlers.
