India beat Pakistan by 228 runs
Right then, Round 2 of the Pakistan-India rivalry in the 2023 Asia Cup is done and it is India who get crucial two points on the board in the Super Four stage. India though have a tough task ahead as in about half a day's time they have to do it all again as they go up against Sri Lanka on Tuesday, the 12th of September in Match number 4 of the Super Four stage at the very same venue. With both teams on two points, a win could almost guarantee in the final. That match will begin at 3 pm IST (9.30 am GMT) given there's no rain but our build-up, as usual, will begin much sooner. Do join us then and till then, take care and goodbye!
Virat Kohli is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH for his brilliant ton. Kohli says that he always prepares his game to help his team and credits KL Rahul for getting a good start. He mentions that his job was the rotate the strike and once he completed his half-century he started taking on the bowlers. His target was the keep the partnership going. He talks about that cheeky shot where he opened the face of his bat and says that he doesn't play that shot often and that he is a conventional player along with KL Rahul who bats the same way. He mentions that it is a memorable partnership for him and credits KL Rahul for coming back from an injury. He says that matches on back-to-back days are a different challenge and that he is ready for the next match and adds that he will take care of his recovery. He also thanks the groundsmen for their unwavering effort for the match to happen smoothly.
The Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma says that they wanted to get some game time which is very important for an ODI. He credits the groundsmen for their effort and thanks them for doing a terrific job. He adds that it is not easy to manage the ground. He mentions that it was a fantastic batting performance and they knew that the wicket was good but the interruptions were a hindrance. He adds that it was a terrific effort from the two centurions. He credits Kuldeep Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah for bowling brilliant spells and appreciates Bumrah for coming back strongly after a long injury. He says that it was an all-round performance and applauds KL Rahul for coming into the team at the last minute and playing a fantastic innings and credits his mindset.
The Presentation ceremony...
Babar Azam, the skipper of Pakistan says that his team were not up to the mark. He adds that he was surprised that the batters attacked their bowlers from the start and credits KL Rahul and Virat Kohli for finishing well. He mentions that Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj bowled very well in the first Powerplay and ends by saying that they failed to build strong partnerships.
The man of the moment, Kuldeep Yadav is down for a chat. Kuldeep says that he is very happy for his fifer and owes it to his practice and his consistency. He adds that he has got 4 wickets before on numerous occasions but bowling on a good length helped him achieve this milestone. He mentions that he plans when he is playing against a top side and focuses on his variation. He anticipated that the batters would try to play his across the line so he bowled according to that.
The top-ranked ODI side in the world has had an outing to forget and have crumbled under pressure here but these things are bound to happen every now and then. Pakistan just didn't get the start with the ball like in the previous game between these two sides and even when they looked to have made a comeback, the rain came. When play finally resumed on the reserve day, they found themselves without the services of the in-form Haris Rauf who picked up a niggle and were forced to use the part-timers in his absence. But even their frontline bowlers couldn't make a mark and it was a daunting task ahead for the batters. The opening pair of Imam-ul-Haq and Fakhar Zaman hardly managed to get bat onto ball with the former getting out early. Babar Azam was then dismissed by a gem of a delivery and so was Mohammad Rizwan. After that, the innings never got back on track and it just kept on going downhill. Agha Salman and Iftikhar Ahmed did manage to get into the 20s but had no answer to the spin of Kuldeep Yadav and ended up losing the game by 228 runs.
India had the platform laid down for them by the two openers when the game started on Sunday and it was all about starting strongly on the reserve day. KL Rahul and Virat Kohli were on the top of their game from the get-go and took India to a mammoth total thanks to their twin centuries. With the ball, under the floodlights, Jasprit Bumrah found his rhythm and bowled like he has been playing throughout the year. Bumrah got the ball to talk and got the early wicket and Mohammed Siraj too troubled the batters but once Hardik Pandya and Shardul Thakur came on to bowl, they got quick wickets that put India in the driving seat. Kuldeep Yadav then came on and weaved his magic as he ripped through the Pakistani middle order ending up with five out of the 8 wickets that fell, paving the way for India's biggest ever victory over Pakistan in terms of runs.
Just under 32 hours before the first ball was bowled, this highly-anticipated contest reached a conclusion and it is India who cruised to the win. Haris Rauf was injured before play began on the reserve day and Naseem Shah too picked up a late niggle in the first innings and that means Pakistan will finish with 128/8. All the excitement leading up to the contest, all the rain delays and the use of the reserve day but in the end, this has turned out to be a one-sided affair between these two colossal giants of ODI cricket.

OUT! TIMBER! A FIFER FOR Kuldeep Yadav! He bowled this one a little short and on top of middle and leg.

Kuldeep Yadav To Iftikhar Ahmed OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT AND BOWLED! Kuldeep Yadav with a dream spell and it's all going down in a hurry for Pakistan. A real drag down around middle and leg, Iftikhar Ahmed goes deep in his crease and looks to pull but the ball skids on and Ifikhar gets the timing all wrong. The ball is sliced flat to the right of the bowler and Kuldeep Yadav springs to that side, just about managing to hold on to the ball with both hands.

Drinks are on the field as the players take a breather. Pakistan have had a very poor start and half of their team has been sent back to the pavilion and they are a long way behind in the chase. None of the batters looked well settled on the pitch and could not build a strong partnership. India on the other hand has used the conditions to their strengths and managed to put their opposition on the back foot. Their bowlers are doing a fantastic job and taking timely wickets which is working to their advantage. Pakistan need a strong partnership now as Shadab Khan walks out to bat next.

The medics and physio are on the field and tending to him. Hope he is okay. There will be a mandatory concussion test conducted and he has his helmet on. Looks like he will continue as the medics and physios are giving him some instructions. It is confirmed that he will continue and play resumes. A lot of injury scares for Pakistan in this match.

We are back for the resumption! The umpires and the Indian players are back on the field. Fakhar Zaman and Mohammad Rizwan too walk out to the middle to resume their innings. Shardul Thakur to bowl his first over of the game after the break. Let's go...
UPDATE 9.12 pm IST (3.42 pm GMT) - Big news coming from the ground as we will have a swift restart at 9.20 pm IST (3.50 pm GMT). No overs lost either, which is excellent news, so, grab a cup of coffee and get back quickly for all the action.
UPDATE 9.01 pm IST (3.31 pm GMT) - Just when it looked like we were getting closer to the restart, the drizzle is back and even though it is light, the covers are coming back on as well. It's been that kind of a game but let's not lose hope just yet. Stay tuned as we bring you the latest updates from the ground. And about five minutes later, the covers come off once again. Frustrating for the ground staff but good news for the fans and players. Let's hope we get a restart soon as the umpires are also out having an inspection.
UPDATE 8.32 pm IST (3.02 pm GMT) - Nothing much to report from the ground as it is still raining in Colombo and the covers are firmly on. However, the cut-off time is 12 am IST which means even if the rain persists for a prolonged period we might get a chance of getting those required 20 overs to constitute the game. If that happens, Pakistan would need 200 to win which from 44 runs in 11 overs would be a near impossible task. But, that is the worst-case scenario, so let's not get ahead of ourselves and hope that the rain goes away soon. Stick around for more updates. Just a few minutes later, the rain has stopped and a few of the covers are being peeled off which is excellent news.
UPDATE 8.09 pm IST (2.39 pm GMT) - Oh, no! The covers are coming on. There is a bit of a drizzle and the umpires are taking the players off the field. Slowly but surely, it is getting a bit heavier as well. Another unwanted break in play but all we can do is wait. Stay tuned for further updates.

FOUR! Crunched away and Imam-ul-Haq is off the mark in fine fashion. Slightly short and wide, Imam pounces on the width and cuts it late past point for a boundary, the first of the chase.

FIVE WIDES! Loses his radar now does Jasprit Bumrah and Pakistan are underway! Full again and it is the inswinger to the left-hander but it is spilled well down leg. Ishan Kishan can't get to it and the ball runs away to the fence.

Jasprit Bumrah To Fakhar Zaman
Goes full now at 142 clicks, on leg stump and swinging in. Fakhar Zaman misses the flick and gets wrapped on the pads. Bumrah is a bit excited for the LBW but that's going down leg.
