Sri Lanka prove a World Cup point with India win

Batsman Bhanuka Rajapaksa said Sri Lanka have shaken off their underdogs tag and proved they can challenge at next month’s T20 World Cup, after beating India to stand on the verge of the Asia Cup final.

Rajapaksa’s side bounced back from a crushing opening defeat against Afghanistan to register three straight wins in the Twenty20 tournament, which was moved from Sri Lanka to the United Arab Emirates because of political unrest and an economic crisis.
