Team India are locking horns with the Pakistan cricket team in the third game of the Asia Cup 2023 tournament. The all-important fixture is currently being staged at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Pallekele. Indian skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to bat first. After a couple of overs, the game witnessed a slight drizzle before it started to get intense. The game was delayed for a while as the covers were brought in.
When the rain stopped, the game resumed but Team India were in all sorts of trouble as the top-order batters fell prey to Shaheen Shah Afridi and Haris Rauf. Shaheen Shah Afridi was the pick of the bowlers for Pakistan as he got rid of two prized wickets namely Rohit Sharma (11) and Virat Kohli (4). The left-arm paceman stuck to his subtle bowling variations of good line and length and made a mess of the two batsmen’s stumps.
