India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2023
During the IND vs PAK Asia Cup 2023 Super 4s match, rain interrupted after just 24.1 overs. Groundskeepers swiftly covered the center square and the area near the playing 22 yards. However, the rain’s intensity caused water to accumulate on the field within seconds.
Though the rain ceased within an hour, the field’s condition was challenging to rectify. The wet mid-wicket square took nearly 2 hours to clear, but the umpires weren’t convinced and decided to call off day 1 of IND vs PAK.
Earlier, after winning the toss, Pakistan chose to field, with Babar highlighting the pitch’s moisture, hoping to exploit it. India’s top order displayed caution, with Rohit and Gill attacking the Pakistani bowlers, both maintaining a strike rate above 110.
Shaheen Shah, Pakistan’s lead fast bowler, conceded 31 runs in his initial 3 overs. Shadab Khan brought some relief, breaking the 121-run opening partnership by dismissing Rohit for 56(49) and later Gill for 58(52).
Pakistan surged back into attack mode, but Virat and Rahul held the fort. India stands at 147-2 at 24.1 overs, and the game will continue from this point today.

Asia Cup 2023 IND vs PAK Pitch Report Of R. Premadasa Stadium (Reserve Day)
Colombo’s R. Premadasa Stadium is renowned for favoring spinners, yet the Pakistani spinners have extracted little from the pitch in this match. Given the stadium’s average score is around 250 and India is nearing 150 at the midpoint, the batters plan to show patience in today’s first innings.
Despite an 80% rain forecast in Colombo, the pitch usually starts off slow and later becomes more conducive for batting. With India opening the batting and the surface offering some late movement, Bumrah must be eager to bowl.
