On September 11 at the R Premdasa Stadium in Colombo, the third game in the Super Four phase of the Asia Cup 2023 will pit India versus Pakistan. India participated in the league stage and played two games, winning one of them to place second in Group A. On the other hand, Pakistan competed in the Super Four stage and defeated Bangladesh.
Pakistan had previously played Bangladesh, in which Bangladesh won the toss and decided to bat. Bangladesh failed to take advantage of the batting track on offer, as they lost the top order cheaply. They didn’t have a good partnership till the fifth wicket. A pair of excellent knocks from Shakib and Rahim contributed to their total of 193 runs. Pakistan faced little difficulty in following down such a total. They easily won the match by seven wickets with more than ten overs to spare.
