Pakistan won the toss and elected to field first in the Super Four match of the Asia Cup 2023 against India at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Sunday, September 10, 2023.
The good news is that the sun is shining in Colombo, and a full match is expected without any rain interruption.
India made two changes to their team, bringing in Jasprit Bumrah and KL Rahul for Mohammed Shami and Ishan Kishan. Pakistan retained the same XI that won against Bangladesh in their previous match.
Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill opened the batting for India, and they got off to a good start, scoring 47 runs in the first six overs. Gill was dismissed for 22 by Shaheen Afridi, but Rohit continued to bat fluently and reached his half-century off 42 balls.
India was 117 for 0 in 15.4 overs when the latest reports came in. Skipper Rohit Sharma 56* (47) and Shubman Gill 55* (48) were at the crease.
