Tuesday's Super Four stage match at the R Premadasa Stadium vs Sri Lanka saw Jadeja reach the milestone. In the game, he grabbed two wickets and lost 33 runs.

Irfan Pathan's 22 wickets in 12 innings have been surpassed by the Indian left-arm spinner's 24 wickets in 18 innings.

With 19 wickets in nine innings, Kuldeep Yadav is also in the running.

Jadeja has taken the fifth-most wickets overall in the Asia Cup. With 30 scalps in 24 innings, Muthiah Muralidaran is in first place on the table.

As the hosts were routed for 172 on Tuesday at the R Premadasa Stadium, India's bowling attack combined to snap Sri Lanka's trend of 13 consecutive victories in one-day international matches and guarantee their place in the 2023 Asia Cup final with one game remaining.

While spinners from both teams dominated the match, India's pacers also contributed to their 41-run triumph over the co-hosts.

Earlier in the match, Sri Lanka defeated Men in Blue for 213 thanks to belligerent bowlers Dunith Wellalage and Charith Asalanka who tore through India's top order.

Wellalage, a young player, made history when he secured his first 5-wicket haul, single-handedly demolishing a strong Indian batting order and taking out star players like Rohit Sharma.
