With their second straight final participation and 11th overall, Sri Lanka will be seeking to surpass India’s incredible record of seven Asia Cup finals on Sunday.

With 166 games played, India and Sri Lanka hold the record for the most One Day International (ODI) matches played by any two sides. India has triumphed in 97 of them, while Sri Lanka has claimed 57 victories. Additionally, 11 games had “no results,” while one game resulted in a draw.
