Asia Cup 2023: India set 357 run target for Pakistan

India has set a mammoth target of 357 runs for Pakistan in the Super Four stage of the Asia Cup. Indian batters were in full control of the match played at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Monday.

India resumed their innings on Monday after rain called off the match on Sunday. Indian batters were in complete control against Pakistan in the blockbuster contest, with KL Rahul and former skipper Virat Kohli making centuries

They made 200 runs of partnership against one of the best bowling attacks in the world.

It was a memorable day for Kohli as he made 13,000 runs in the one-day internationals.

The high-voltage contest between Pakistan and India finally resumed on the reserve day, Monday, but with a blow for the co-hosts of the tournament as Haris Rauf has been ruled out of the match due to injury.

“Fast bowler Haris Rauf will not be bowling any further in the Asia Cup Super 4 match against India as a precautionary measure,” the Pakistan Cricket Board said in a statement.

Heavy rain in Colombo on Monday afternoon threatened to wash out the reserve day of the blockbuster Super Four clash at the Asia Cup between India and Pakistan.

“He felt a little discomfort in his right flank during the match yesterday and was subsequently taken for a precautionary MRI, which revealed no tear,” said the PCB.
