In the ongoing blockbuster match between India and Pakistan at the Pallekele in the Asia Cup 2023, India gave Pakistan a target of 267 runs to chase.
Earlier, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bat first.
Speaking about his team’s objective in the tournament, Sharma said, “Got to play good cricket, you need to embrace the challenge, embrace the situation. We had some time off after the West Indies series. Everyone was up for those drills and challenges in Bangalore. Let’s see what we can achieve in this tournament. It’s a quality tournament with quality opposition. At the end of the day, we need to see what we can achieve as a team.”

Indian openers Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill soon walked to the pavilion after struggling to play the brilliant bowling attack by Pakistani bowlers like Shaheen Shah Afridi and Haris Rauf.
However, Ishan Kishan (82) and Hardik Pandya (87) took time on the pitch, which resulted in India crossing 200 runs in 40 overs.
For Pakistan, Afridi picked 4 wickets, while Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah took 3 wickets each.
Meanwhile, rains have disrupted the play, as both the teams are waiting for the rains to stop. The match is officially called off due to the rains and both India and Pakistan will be 1 point each. Pakistan are through to the Super 4 and unless Nepal pull of a world-stopping upset, India will be there too.
