IND vs PAK Asia Cup 2023 Highlights: India struggled against Pakistan's pacers but a 138-run stand between Hardik Pandya and Ishan Kishan helped them recover from the early salvo from Shaheen Afridi and Co. Ishan Kishan scored his fourth consecutive ODI half-century and seemed to start cramping towards the end ...Read More of his innings. He hence looked to switch gears which led to him falling to Haris Rauf on 82 off 81. Pandya soldiered on but missed out on a maiden ODI century, falling to Afridi on 87 off 90. Afridi and Naseem Shah returned towards the end of the innings to take another flurry of wickets and India eventually were all out for 266. Afridi ended with figures of 4/35 while Naseem and Rauf took three each. Just as the players left the field, rain started coming down and it only intensified. Eventually the ground staff covered up the entire ground and it means that Pakistan's chase is set to get off to a delayed start. The showers eased up and an inspection took place at 9pm. The Indian bowlers also made their way down as the covers were taken off the ground entirely. It looked like play could resume any moment but the rains returned. With them came back the covers and the Pakistani chase was been delayed even further. Eventually, the umpires decided that it is pointless to wait any further and the captains shook hands. The match was hence washed out without a single ball being bowled in the Pakistan innings.

IND vs PAK Asia Cup 2023, LIVE Score: Match called off!
Right the two sets of players are shaking hands in the dressing room, Rohit Sharma and Babar Azam do that as well most importantly. So that is the end of this match. In the end, all it turned out to be was an extremely hyped up, under-pressure practice day for the Pakistan bowlers and Indian batters. And while one might think that the Pakistani bowlers came out on top, India would be happy about the fact that they know they have cool heads in the middle order who can play a situation and get out of tricky spots. Pakistan are through to the Super 4. And unless Nepal pull of a world-stopping upset, India will be there too.Sep 02, 2023 09:49 PM IST

Reasons for an ODI to be abandoned between India and Pakistan have ranged from assasinations to teams conceding in protest. However, wash-outs have happened just twice in all the games that they have played against each other. The last time this happened was in Toronto on September 17, 1997. Ramiz Raja led Pakistan, who batted first while Sachin Tendulkar was India's skipper. Saeed Anwar was unbeaten on 74 off 84 while Sourav Ganguly had taken two wickets when the two teams went off and never came back.Sep 02, 2023 08:22 PM IST

“That was our plan with the new ball. I think both (Virat and Rohit) were crucial wickets, every batter is the same for me. But I think I liked Rohit's wicket better. The plans by our fast bowlers worked. Naseem is bowling at 150 kph, really happy with that, he's really fast. The new ball might swing and seam, nothing much after that. It will be easier to score runs once the ball gets old (in the run chase).”Sep 02, 2023 07:46 PM IST

Just as the players make their way off, rain returns. The ground staff is running on to the pitch with the covers as well. Well Pakistan let this game drift a lot. Their fielding was as sloppy as the spin bowling was in the middle overs and despite all that, India have only managed to score a competitive 266, instead of a mammoth total. Just shows how dominant Pakistan would have been had they kept their eye on the game throughout this innings.Sep 02, 2023 07:44 PM IST

Bumrah holes out at midwicket. What a cameo he has played, 16 in 14 balls. Naseem Shah ends with figures of 3/36 after going almost the entire match with no wickets to show for his brilliant efforts.

A wicket at last for Pakistan and it is Haris Rauf who breaks the partnership.

This partnership is now worth 117 in 126 balls and it will be difficult for you to find too many moments where either Pandya or Kishan were lucky to escape a dismissal.

IND vs PAK Asia Cup 2023, LIVE Score: The story thus far
With the 31st over done we have gone into a drinks break and so that gives us time to look back on what has happened in this match so far. Pakistan came in breathing fire, taking three wickets in the first 10 overs. India's problems deepened when they lost the struggling Shubman Gill in the 15th over and they were reduced to 66/4. Since then, though, a combination of lose bowling from Pakistan's spinners combined with some efficient ODI batting from Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya seems to have helped India stage an impressive recovery. Kishan has scored his fourth consecutive ODI half century while Pandya is in his 40s. India are now 156/4 in 31 overs, Kishan is on 58 off 63, Pandya on 43 off 56.Sep 02, 2023 06:11 PM IST
IND vs PAK Asia Cup 2023, LIVE Score: 30 overs done, India 148/4
Kishan is on 56 off 61, Pandya on 38 off 50. Afridi taken off once again and now it is Agha Salman and Shadab Khan sending the balls in.Sep 02, 2023 06:06 PM IST
IND Vs PAK Asia Cup 2023, LIVE Score: 50 for Kishan!
His fourth consecutive half century in this format. It has come in just 54 balls. He came at a time when India were in all sorts and Pakistan's pacers were taking wickets for fun. Ishan has made the most of whatever the spinners have bowled and has also looked rather unperturbed by the few balls he faced from Afridi. He is playing out of position but has done exactly what India need. The fact that they still need him to do more shows just how much that early salvo from the Pakistan pacers has dented the Indian cause for now.Story SavedLive Score
