Pakistan and India will lock horns today in the 3rd match of the Asia Cup 2023 Super Fours at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. Rain spoiled the first meeting between the arch-rivals earlier in the tournament. Worryingly, the forecast says there will be thunderstorms through the whole day today but there is a reserve day tomorrow for this match.
Earlier in the tournament against Pakistan, India’s top-order collapsed as India lost 4 wickets for 66 runs. Ishan Kishan (82 runs) and Hardik Pandya (87 runs) displayed magnificent performances in the middle overs, to get a total of 266-10. Shaheen Afridi took 4 wickets, and Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf got three each. The rain spoiled the second inning of the game.
