India secured a dominant victory over Sri Lanka in the final of the Asia Cup 2023, winning 10 wickets and ending the match in just 21.1 overs. Sri Lanka’s innings came to a meager 50 runs, which is the second-lowest score ever Sri Lanka in ODI cricket. Fans quickly took to social media to draw a funny parallel between Sri Lanka’s low total and the lowest score in IPL history, RCB’s 49.

During an IPL 2017 match against Kolkata Knight Riders, RCB was bowled out for the lowest ever score in IPL history. Surprisingly, Sri Lanka managed to score just one run more than RCB’s 49 in the Asia Cup final. This coincidence sparked a series of amusing tweets and memes comparing the two incidents.

Mohammed Siraj was the standout performer of the match, claiming the best-ever figures an Indian bowler in the final of the Asia Cup, with 6 wickets for just 21 runs. He made a remarkable impact, taking 4 wickets in just his second over. Sri Lanka’s batting lineup was unable to handle Siraj’s dominance, resulting in their dismal total.

India’s opening pair of Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill wasted no time in reaching the target of 51 runs, achieving the victory in just 6.1 overs without losing a single wicket. This win secured the Asia Cup 2023 title for India. Fans flooded social media with hilarious memes and reactions, with the term “RCB’s 49” trending on microblogging site X.
