IND vs. PAK Super 4, Asia Cup 2023: Date, Time, Venue, Pitch Report, Probable Playing 11 And Squads: The Clash of the Titans has returned, with India winning their second and last league match against Nepal in the ongoing Asia Cup 2023. The El Classico of cricket between India and Pakistan has been determined. The Super 4 has been scheduled for September 10th; however, the location has yet to be determined due to severe rain in Colombo.
India and Pakistan qualified from Group A. Pakistan qualified first after defeating Nepal in the first match and drawing with India in the second. The same India drew with Pakistan before winning their last League encounter against Nepal by 10 wickets. Captain Sharma guided the squad from the start and was named Man of the Tournament for the way he performed.
Rain caused the league round match between India and Pakistan to be canceled in the current competition. Rain was predicted to begin before the game, but it didn’t. India batted first and quickly lost all four of his wickets. Pakistan believed they would easily win the game with Rohit, Kohli, Iyer, and Gill going inside the pavilion in a short amount of time.
Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya, on the other hand, kept their ground and put up a partnership of 138 runs, but shortly after they were dismissed, the Indian squad crumbled with one over remaining. Rain twice interrupted play during this period, but it soon resumed. However, as the Indian innings concluded, rain returned and stayed for the rest of the game, and the game was called off.
The ACC and SLC disappointed the crowd by keeping the game on a rainy day despite the weather forecast. Every cricket fan looks forward to seeing an India vs. Pakistan match since they only ever compete against each other in ICC or ACC competitions, which take place once or twice a year. As fans, we can only wish to see a complete match with Power Pack Entertainment on September 10.
India vs Pakistan Super 4 Match Details
Match: India vs Pakistan
Date: Sunday, 10th September
Time: 03:00 PM (IST)
Venue: Kandy/ Humbantota
Broadcast: Star Sports, DD Sports
Live stream: Disney+Hotstar
Venue And Pitch Report
The match was supposed to be played at R. Premdasa Stadium in Colombo; however, due to the weather, ACC, SLC, and PCB are in discussions to modify the venue. Dambulla, Kandy, and Hambantota were preserved as choices, but Kandy just had a washout, and Dambulla could not prepare in such a short period. Humbantota currently has the best weather in Sri Lanka, and not just India-Pakistan matches but all other Super Four matches can be moved to this place.
Both batters and bowlers have benefited from the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium in Hambantota. Due to the nature of the surface, spinners have an advantage on this circuit. Scoring runs at this site becomes increasingly difficult as the game develops, and the side that wins the toss will prefer to bowl first. It should be noted that the team fielding first has won 13 of the 26 matches. Overall, a lively and high-scoring game is predicted at this venue.
IND vs PAK Head-To-Head
India and Pakistan have both competed in the Asia Cup since its debut in 1984. Since then, India and Pakistan have met each other 19 times, with India winning 9 times and Pakistan winning 6 times. However, four matches have ended without a result, including the most recent encounter, which was rained out on September 2nd at Pallekele Stadium in Kandy.
