Asia Cup, Super 4: India sets 357 target for Pakistan

The highly anticipated cricket match between Pakistan and India resumed on Monday after a significant delay due to a wet outfield, fortunately without any overs being lost.

Intermittent rain had been falling since early morning, and the sky remained cloudy with dark clouds, while strong winds persisted in Colombo.

The umpires were scheduled to conduct an inspection shortly to determine when the game could recommence.

According to the Sri Lankan weather department, there is a possibility of heavy rain during the afternoon hours, precisely when the game is scheduled to start.

It’s important to mention that Pakistan won the toss and opted to bowl first against India in the Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 match.

India had reached a score of 147-2 in 24.1 overs when heavy rain interrupted play while they were batting. The umpires waited for nearly four hours before making the decision to postpone the remaining part of the game to the following day.

In accordance with the playing conditions, the match will resume from the point it was halted, with no overs deducted.

Here are the lineups:

India: Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Ishan Kishan (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj

Pakistan: Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Agha Salman, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf
