The much-anticipated Super 4s clash between cricketing arch-rivals Pakistan and India in the Asia Cup 2023 has been given a Reserve Day, according to tournament organizers. This decision comes in light of weather forecasts predicting continuous rainfall in Colombo, where the Asia Cup matches are being held.
The Reserve Day scheduled for September 11 is a contingency plan designed to ensure that the match can proceed even if adverse weather conditions disrupt the primary match day. In addition to this, a Reserve Day has also been set aside for the Asia Cup final, which is slated for September 17.
This provision of a Reserve Day ensures that both teams will have an equal opportunity to display their skills on the field, providing reassurance to fans that they will not miss out on this thrilling cricketing event. The Pakistan vs. India match is expected to be a gripping contest, with both teams competing for the coveted Asia Cup title.
Previously, the two rivals faced off in the group stage of the competition in Pallekele. However, the match was interrupted by rain, preventing Pakistan from continuing their innings after they had bowled out India for 266 runs. As a result, the match was abandoned, and the points were shared between the two teams.
Currently, Pakistan is leading the Super 4s points table following a convincing 7-wicket victory over Bangladesh in Lahore. A win in the upcoming match against India would almost certainly secure them a place in the final of this prestigious event.
Cricket enthusiasts worldwide are eagerly awaiting this Super 4s clash, scheduled for September 10. However, the threat of rain has cast a shadow of uncertainty over the fixture. With the introduction of a Reserve Day, fans can rest assured that they will not miss out on this highly anticipated match.
