Asia Cup 2023 Super 4: Rain Delays Pakistan vs. India Match, but Full 50 Overs to Be Played

Colombo| September 11, 2023 : Cricket enthusiasts were left disappointed as rain played spoilsport during the third match of the Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 between Pakistan and Team India. The scheduled match on the main day could not reach its conclusion, leading to a delay to the reserve day, September 11. However, even on the reserve day, the match faced a delay of one and a half hours due to persistent rain, leaving fans anxious for updates.

The tension finally eased when the umpires inspected the pitch and the field at 4:20 PM local time. Following their assessment, a significant decision was made: the match would resume at 4:40 PM, triggering excitement among cricket aficionados. What makes this even more thrilling is that despite the substantial delay, the number of overs remains untouched, promising a complete game of 50 overs.

The rain had already wreaked havoc, causing a total loss of 1 hour and 40 minutes of play on the initial match day, which was originally set to commence at 3 PM. Team India had managed to score 147 runs for the loss of 2 wickets in 24.1 overs before the rain interruption. Notably, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul were at the crease, with Rohit Sharma contributing 56 runs and Shubman Gill adding 58 to the scoreboard. Both Kohli and Rahul remained unbeaten, meaning the match would recommence from where it left off.

In a significant setback for Pakistan, the team faced a major blow at the beginning of the match. Due to injury, one of Pakistan’s key bowlers will not participate in the game against Team India. This news comes as a silver lining for Team India, as Haris Rauf will be sidelined from bowling due to his injury.

As the cricketing world holds its breath, all eyes are now fixed on the resumption of the match, anticipating an exciting battle between the arch-rivals, Pakistan and Team India. The unchanged overs promise a full-length thriller, ensuring that the Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 match will be one to remember.
