Heavy rain in Colombo has delayed the highly anticipated Super 4 matchup between Pakistan and India for the 2023 Asia Cup. India had scored 147 runs in 24.1 overs for the loss of 2 wickets when the game was called off.
In the event that India is unable to bat again today, Pakistan will be charged with chasing a 20-over mark, which would be 181 runs. The aim for Pakistan would be 206 runs to win in 24 overs if both teams were given the same number of overs.
In accordance with the rules of the game, if no more play is possible today, play will continue tomorrow at the same point with no overs lost.
In the event that the game gets reduced to 24 overs per side and play is scheduled to resume, rain prevents it after only one over has been bowled, forcing the day’s play to be called off. The match will continue on Reserve Day using the same reduced overs format, which is 24 overs for each side since it was previously resumed before the weather delay.
However, if a 20-over chase is possible today, the umpires will attempt to finish a shorter game today rather than using the reserve day.
