The highly-anticipated Pakistan vs India match during the Asia Cup 2023 was abandoned due to rain in Kandy, Sri Lanka. India was able to get a target of 267 runs, however, Pakistan did not get a chance to bat due to persistent rain.
This means that Pakistan have qualified for the Super 4 stage of the Asia Cup 2023 and the arch-rivals will meet again on September 10 if India wins their final group match against Nepal on September 4.
Earlier, India had a rough start with several wickets lost early in the game. However, Hardik Pandya and Ishan Kishan were able to bring their side back into the game as both of them scored 87 and 82 runs, respectively.
Pakistan gave an outstanding performance during the first innings with Shaheen Afridi taking 4 wickets for just 35 runs, which included Pandya, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Ravindra Jadeja.
Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah claimed three wickets each for Pakistan.
