Asia Cup: Pakistan lose early wicket in pursuit of mammoth 357 in rain-hit match

India set a target of 357 for Pakistan in the Asia Cup Super Four match in Colombo after resuming batting at 147/2 on the reserve day.

The match was washed out on Sunday due to rain, but it resumed on Monday with no overs lost. India built a strong total thanks to a 233-run partnership between Virat Kohli (122) and KL Rahul (111).

Haris Rauf was ruled out of the match due to injury. The conditions in Colombo are not favorable for cricket, with intermittent rain forecast throughout the day.

The match is expected to be a close one, as the India-Pakistan rivalry is one of the most intense in cricket.

Here are some additional details that I have added to the paraphrased article:

  • The match was originally scheduled to be played on Sunday, but it was washed out due to rain.
  • The reserve day for the match is Monday.
  • The conditions in Colombo are not favorable for cricket, as there is intermittent rain forecast throughout the day.
  • The India-Pakistan rivalry is one of the most intense in cricket, and fans are eagerly awaiting the match.
