After the rain stopped at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Monday, the much-anticipated match between Pakistan and India got back underway. Pakistan’s national team kept chasing runs while India’s did the same. Rain stopped a match in Colombo, Sri Lanka, that was taking place as part of the Asia Cup 2023. Before the game was stopped, Pakistan’s starter Imam-ul-Haq and captain Babar Azam were both out in the first 11.4 overs, and they only scored 43 runs.
Pakistan-India Super 4 resumed after rain stops
Earlier, Indian batsmen Virat Kohli and KL Rahul each scored a hundred, which helped the team set a huge 357-run goal for Pakistan to beat them and win the Super 4 match. The first day of the game at Colombo’s R. Premadasa Stadium was ruined by rain. Today, on the backup day, the game picked up right where it left off on Sunday, with no overs lost. The high-stakes match between Pakistan and India started up again on Monday after being put on hold for hours because of a wet pitch.
Thankfully, no overs were lost. Since early morning, it had been raining on and off, and the sky was cloudy with dark clouds. There were also strong winds in Colombo. As soon as the players got out on the pitch today, India took control of the game. They finished their 50 overs with a score of 356-2, and Pakistan didn’t lose any wickets on the spare day. With nine fours and three sixes, Kohli made 122 runs in 94 balls and didn’t get out.
Rahul, on the other hand, was still not out after making 111 runs in 106 balls, 14 of which were fours. In the Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 match between Pakistan and India, Pakistan won the coin toss and chose to bowl first. India was up to 147-2 after 24.1 overs when heavy rain stopped the game. After almost four hours of waiting, the judges decided to move the rest of the game to today. Pakistan sent out the same team for this high-stakes match. But today, the important fast bowler Haris Rauf was taken out of the game because he was hurt.
