In the highly anticipated Asia Cup 2023 showdown, arch-rivals Pakistan and India are poised to go head-to-head today at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Sri Lanka.
However, cricket enthusiasts were left disappointed as BBC Weather indicated a 70 percent chance of rain, sparking concerns that the much-awaited match might be completely washed out. Reports also suggested the possibility of rain on Friday night and early Saturday morning, which could result in a delayed start to the clash between these neighboring nations.
Thankfully, there’s some positive news for fans, as the likelihood of rain has now significantly decreased in the city, raising hopes of witnessing some cricket action. While full gameplay might not be guaranteed under the current conditions, fans remain optimistic, knowing that the ground staff in Sri Lanka are experienced in handling such situations.
Here’s a glimpse of Pakistan’s playing XI for the showdown against their arch-rivals. India and Pakistan typically meet only in ACC or ICC events, and the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium is all set to host this crucial encounter.
The last encounter between these two teams took place in the T20 World Cup 2022, with the Rohit Sharma-led side emerging victorious in a thrilling match at the MCG. In the Asia Cup 2022, India secured a victory in the opening clash, while Pakistan triumphed in the Super Fours game. Pakistan advanced to the final against Sri Lanka but fell short of claiming the trophy.
