Once again the talks were about the forecast, which unfortunately had showers predicted. With the anticipation of rain around during the India vs Pakistan game, the officials zeroed in on having a reserve day for the fixture. The luxury was not extended to other Super 4 games, but only to the epic rivalry of India and Pakistan.
The game started with no signs of rain and the Indian openers successfully managed to negate the opening spell from Pakistan. Not only did India manage to keep hold of its wickets in the first powerplay, but the Indian openers also attacked their prime pacers, which put the pressure back on Pakistan.
The two openers stitched a 112-run partnership before the dismissal of Rohit Sharma. Subsequently, Shubman Gill also lost his wicket to Shaheen Afridi. Both the openers scored their individual half-centuries before getting dismissed.
Virat Kohli and KL Rahul were the two incoming batters, who at no point looked stressed with the bowling unit of Pakistan. Both the batters remained unbeaten on Sunday as the umpires called off the game. The reserve day (Monday) came into the picture.
Kohli and Rahul began their assault once again on the reserve day and soon completed their half-centuries. The two batters then took the Pakistani bowlers for a ride and in no time they reached their individual centuries, thereby taking India’s total to 356 runs in 50 overs after losing just two wickets.
The chase was big and a lion-hearted effort was required from Pakistan if they were to defeat India. However, things went haywire for Pakistan as they felt uncomfortable facing the Indian bowlers. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohd Siraj commenced the attack and put pressure on Pakistan. Bumrah picked up Imam-ul Haq cheaply in the powerplay itself.
Hardik Pandya then scalped Babar Azam with an unplayable delivery followed by Shardul’s peach to dismiss Mohd Rizwan. Then came Kuldeep Yadav, who not only broke the back of Pakistan’s batting but also made a mockery of them. The spinner scalped five wickets and helped India bowl out Pakistan at just 128 runs score.
The win got India up and moving in the Asia Cup 2023 Points Table Super 4. With two points and an unassailable net run rate, India is placed on top of the chart. Below is the Asia Cup 2023 Points Table Super 4 Updated (September 12) after India vs Pakistan, Highest Run Getter, Most Wickets.
