India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup 2023 Super 4: Date, Time, Venue, Live Streaming And Weather Forecast
IND vs PAK: Both the teams and cricket fans are hoping that rains will stay away despite the addition of a reserve day.
Team India and Pakistan will face each other once again in the Super Fours stage of the Asia Cup 2023. The league match between both the teams at Pallekele ended in a washout.
Ahead of the match, the biggest headache for the Indian team management will be to choose the wicketkeeper. KL Rahul, who has joined the team for the Super Fours stage kept wickets for nearly 45 minutes in the training session on Friday.
PTI reported that Rahul's intense keeping drill at nets might have also brightened his chance of getting included in India’s playing 11 for the Super 4 match against Pakistan.
In the absence of Rahul, Ishan Kishan has been playing the wicket-keeper batter role. Kishan made four half-centuries in as many matches – 3 against the West Indies and one against Pakistan, to impress all.
Pacer Jasprit Bumrah, who skipped the Asia Cup league match against Nepal to be with his wife for the birth of their first child, too rejoined the squad and sweated it out at the nets, the news agency reported.
On the other side, Pakistan skipper Babar Azam has said the recent experience of playing in Sri Lankan conditions will give his side an edge over India in the Asia Cup Super 4 clash.
“Given the continuous cricket we are playing both in Pakistan and Sri Lanka, you can say that we hold an edge (over India),' said Babar in the pre-match press conference on Saturday.
