The ODI Cricket match between Pakistan and India occurred on Saturday, 02 September 2023 09:30:00 UTC at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Kandy. This was the Match 3 of the Asia Cup, 2023. The match has ended. India won the toss and decided to Bat first. In the Inning-1, India scored 266 runs for 10 wickets in 48.5 overs. The match was abandoned due to rain. Ishan Kishan scored 82 runs in 81 balls with 9 fours and 2 sixes and Hardik Pandya scored 87 runs in 90 balls with 7 fours and 1 sixes.
India was in trouble early on as they lost their top three batsmen for just 19 runs. But Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya put on a 138-run partnership for the fifth wicket to help India recover. Kishan scored 82 off 94 balls while Pandya made 87 off 66 balls.
The Pakistan bowlers were impressive, led by Shaheen Shah Afridi, who took 4 for 35. Naseem Shah bowled 8.5 overs, conceded 36 runs, and took 3 wickets. Haris Rauf bowled 9.0 overs, conceded 58 runs, and took 3 wickets.
The match was a disappointing one for the fans, who were looking forward to a close contest between the two arch-rivals. But the rain played spoilsport and the match ended in a no-result.
As a result of the washout, Pakistan’s progress to the Super Fours was confirmed. They had already won their first two matches in the group stage and were guaranteed a top-two finish. India, on the other hand, will have to wait until their next match to try and qualify for the Super Fours.
The India vs. Pakistan rivalry is one of the most intense in world cricket. The two teams have met 136 times in ODIs, with Pakistan winning 73 and India winning 55. In the Asia Cup, India have won 7 of the 13 matches they have played against Pakistan.
