Asia Cup

Who was the man holding the Asia Cup trophy with the Indian team, handed by Mohammed Siraj?


India Won the Asia Cup title for the 8th time, beating the defending Champions, Sri Lanka. India marked a monument win by ten wickets. Mohammed Siraj emerged as the showstopper of the game. He was splendid with the ball, delivering his best ODI figures of 6/12. Eventually, he was awarded with the Player of the Match.

The Indian team members celebrated with their 8th Asia Cup trophy, and Siraj was the one at the center. Meanwhile, Mohammed Siraj handed the Asia Cup trophy to a man on his left. The man seemed to be a member of the Indian side staff.

Everyone was curious about the identity of the man holding the Asia Cup trophy. Well, he is India’s throwdown specialist. His name is Raghu Raghavendra, and his job is to deliver throw-downs to the Indian players with the help of a slinger. Moreover, he is India’s first throw-down expert to train legends like Sachin Tendulkar and ex-popular skipper MS Dhoni.

Raghu Raghavendra holding the Asia Cup trophy went viral on social media. Moreover, India has two more throwdown experts apart from him to assist the batsman in the nets.

The pace attack of the Indian side constructed dominance in the game. The Sri Lankan team had to merely do the formalities in the second innings as they were defending only 51 runs. Indian batters Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan came in to bat and were the ones to sweep the game away from Sri Lanka in just 6.1 overs. While Shubman Gill made 27 runs off 19 balls, Ishan Kishan made 23 off 18 deliveries.
