This was not the final that the wider cricketing world perhaps wanted. That was India vs Pakistan. The world will have to wait a little longer. Or maybe a lot longer: in 16 editions of the competition there has yet to be one.
Contrastingly, India vs Sri Lanka used to be the regular final. The 1st edition of the Asia Cup was decided purely on a round robin basis (and ended with India and Sri Lanka as the top two) and India did not compete in the second edition having fallen out with hosts Sri Lanka. But from the third to the 10th Asia Cups the only time the final was not India against Sri Lanka was the seventh when Sri Lanka took on Pakistan instead. However, this will be the first India and Sri Lanka final since that edition in 2010.
In their previous clashes, India have won four to Sri Lanka’s three. Overall, India have won seven Asia Cups to Sri Lanka’s six. Sri Lanka are the defending Asia Cup winners. They won in 2022 when the competition was held as a T20 one. The last time the competition was a 50-over version, in 2018, the winners were India.

How to watch India vs Sri Lanka live stream from anywhere
A VPN, or virtual private network, makes it look as if you're surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you're in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, from anywhere on Earth. Or anywhere that has an internet connection, at least.
VPNs are totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use. We've tested lots of the best VPN services and our favorite is ExpressVPN. It's fast, works on loads of devices, and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.
2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.K. and want to view an Indian service, such as Hotstar, you'd select India from the list.
3. Sit back and enjoy the action and watch the India vs Sri Lanka live stream.
