The India vs Pakistan match in Pallekele was called off due to rain. Pakistan could not start their chase as rain eventually forced the match to be abandoned. Earlier, India were bowled out for 266 runs as Shaheen Afridi picked a four-wicket haul. The left-arm pacer kept the Indian team at bay despite fifties from Hardik Pandya (87) and Ishan Kishan (82). India were 66 for 4 at one stage but a 138-run partnership between Hardik and Kishan brought them back in the game. Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf picked three wickets each, denting India's show towards the end. India skipper Rohit won the toss and opted to bat first.
