KANDY – The Asia Cup encounter between Pakistan and India ended in “no result” due to rain in Kandy, Sri Lanka. However, Pakistan made its way to the Super Fours despite no result of Saturday’s match.

Earlier, Pakistani bowlers restricted India to 266 despite an impressive performance by Indian middle-order batsmen Hardik Pandya and Ishan Kishan.

Pakistani bowlers Shaheen Shah Afridi, Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf launched a successful assault on the Indian batting order and no batsman other than Hardik Pandya and Ishan Kishan could withstand the high-voltage bowling attack.

First time in Asia Cup (ODI) history, all 10 wickets have been taken by pacers in the Pakistan vs India match.

Soon after India opened the innings against Pakistan in the 3rd One-Day International (ODI) of Group A in the Asia Cup 2023 cricket tournament, rain interrupted the play after India scored 15-0 in 4.2 overs.

The players walked off as the covers came on to secure the pitch.

India won the toss and elected to bat first against Pakistan in the first encounter of Asia Cup 2023 between two the arch-rivals that is all set to begin in the Sri Lankan city of Kandy at 02:30pm on Saturday (today).

As the match began at the Pallekele International Stadium, Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill opened the innings for India.
