The Super 4 match between India and Pakistan had to be abandoned due to rain. When play was suspended, Team India had scored 147 runs for 2 wickets in 24.1 overs. Earlier, Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill ensured the team got off to a great start. The team’s 100 runs were completed in the 14th over. Rohit was out for 56 runs and Shubman Gill was out for 58 runs. KL Rahul plays on 17 runs and Virat Kohli plays on 8 runs. Gill hit 10 fours. Rohit hit six fours and four sixes in his innings. Rohit Sharma’s wicket went to leg-spinner Shadab Khan while Shubman Gill’s wicket went to left-arm fast bowler Shaheen Afridi.
Team India has made two changes in the playing eleven. KL Rahul and Jasprit Bumrah have returned. Mohammed Shami and Shreyas Iyer are not playing this game. Iyer is injured. This could be a concern for the team. This is a Super 4 game. The weather in Colombo is currently clear. In such a situation, the game is expected to end. Former India captain Virat Kohli’s record on the field is excellent. He scored 3 centuries in 8 innings. In such a situation, he would like to continue his performance in this game. If we talk about the two matches of the Super 4 round so far, Pakistan and Sri Lanka have won in them.
India and Pakistan also faced each other in the group round, but this game could not be completed due to rain. Although Team India got a chance to bat. Left-arm fast bowler Shaheen Afridi had bowled everyone from Rohit Sharma to Virat Kohli. The team got off to a very bad start. After that, Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya scored half-centuries and led the team to more than 250 runs. All 10 wickets of the innings were taken by Pakistan’s fast bowlers and this happened for the first time in the 39-year history of the Asia Cup.
The Indian team also wants to avoid the trio of Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf in the Super 4. Pakistan have also included fourth fast bowler Faheem Ashraf in the starting XI for the match. However, both Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill scored unbeaten half-centuries against Nepal. Because of this, the Indian team managed to win the game by 10 wickets. When we talk about Indian bowling, most of the attention will be on fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah. After 14 months, he will be seen bowling in ODI cricket. In such a situation, is he fully fit to bowl 10 overs? The team management will also keep an eye on this.
The match between India and Pakistan can be watched on the Starsports network. Additionally, fans can also watch the game for free on Hotstar. The game will also be broadcast live on DD Sports.
