A fight breaks out between India and Sri Lanka fans during the Asia Cup match. The spectators jump between the brawling fans

A BRAWL broke out minutes after India’s narrow win over Sri Lanka in an Asia Cup Super 4 battle, between fans in the stands.

In the video, a Sri Lankan fan in a blue top can be seen shouting before running up and shockingly launching an attack on a man in a yellow shirt.

The crowd were silenced as India ran out winners in a tight battle by 41 runs

The fan fights back before a dozen other people in the stands jump in to separate the brawling pair.

It isn’t clear what caused the fight but the stadium was almost empty in the video meaning it happened sometime after the match.

India ended up winning the match by 41 runs keeping them unbeaten so far in the tournament.

Kuldeep Yadav was the star man on the day as India overcame Sri Lankan danger man Dunith Wellalage to win a tightly contested game of cricket.

Kuldeep took four wickets as India bowled out Sri Lanka for 172 as they failed to chase the 213 target set by India earlier on in the day.

The packed out home crowd at Colombo’s R. Premadasa Stadium was silenced as the final wicket fell.

The win means India will be back at the same stadium on Sunday in the final, regardless of their result in the game against Bangledesh tomorrow.

They will play one of two teams they’ve already beaten in either Bangladesh or Sri Lanka who are playing today.

India ended Sri Lanka’s 13-match winning streak in ODIs with the victory, giving them much needed confidence after their first game against Pakistan was cut short due to rain.

Man of the match Dunith Wellalage, who got his first ODI five-wicket haul in the match, also impressed with the bat, being the final Sri Lankan on the pitch with an unbeaten 42.

He ran out of partners in the 41st over as India found the ten wickets they needed.

Wellalage said after the game: “Kuldeep is a great bowler, I tried to play my normal game with a positive mind-set.

“I want to thank my team-mates and my coaching staff — they gave me great support.”

India skipper Rohit Sharma praised Kuldeep for his rhythm and consistency in another great game with the ball after taking five wickets against Pakistan.

The captain said: “For the past year or so, he’s been bowling really, really well.

“He has done a lot of hard work on his rhythm.

“The ball is coming out nicely and you can see the results in the last ten ODIs.”  

The Asia Cup has had many sweet moments so far as Indian cricket ace, Jasprit Bumrah, was congratulated by Shaheen Afridi after the birth of Bumrah’s first child when the two teams last met.

Records have also been broken at the Asia Cup this year as KL Rahul and superstar Virat Kohli got a 223 run partnership against Pakistan and it saw Kohli become the quickest player to score 13,000 runs in the ODI 50-over format, having done so in 54 innings less than the previous holder Sachin Tendulkar.
