Controversy arose in the Asia Cup 2023 when the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) designated a reserve day exclusively for the India vs. Pakistan Super 4 match due to anticipated heavy rainfall on the original date. This decision triggered outrage among fans, particularly in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, who perceived it as biased. However, both Sri Lanka Cricket and Bangladesh Cricket surprisingly supported the ACC's choice, revealing that it was made in consultation with all participating boards. Some, like former Indian pacer Venkatesh Prasad, questioned whether there was pressure to accept this arrangement and why such generosity was extended to India vs. Pakistan while not providing reserve days for other matches.

First aid is a critical component in emergency situations, potentially saving lives in cases like heart attacks, seizures, strokes, and accidents. It encompasses life-saving techniques, basic medicines, bandages, pain relievers, and more. Knowledge of CPR, the Heimlich maneuver, bleeding control, AED usage, and snakebite treatment is essential. Anyone, be it a bystander, family member, or colleague, can provide first aid in the event of an injury or sudden illness before professional medical help arrives. World First Aid Day falls on the second Saturday of September and focuses on raising awareness about the importance of first aid, with this year's theme being 'First Aid in the Digital World.' An emergency medical kit is crucial, containing items like bandages, gauze, antiseptics, scissors, gloves, medications, CPR equipment, and contact numbers, tailored to specific family needs.
