Pakistan pacers set a record before the game washed out due to rain.

Pakistan’s pace trio took all ten India wickets, setting an Asia Cup record before rain ruined a promising match.

The Asia Cup was ruined by rain, as the India-Pakistan group match was rained out. However, the game had already seen a number of spectacular individual performances.

This was the first time in an Asia Cup ODI match that pacers took all ten wickets.

Rohit Sharma won the toss and chose to bat first, but India struggled in the overcast conditions. They were also impacted by the contest’s start-stop nature, with rain constantly interfering.

Pakistan’s pace battery, which was at its regal best, made things even more difficult. In the fifth over, Shaheen Shah Afridi struck with one to nip and crash into Rohit Sharma’s stumps.

Virat Kohli, India’s batting lynchpin, was chopping onto his stumps in his very next over.

Shaheen and Haris Rauf both rattled India’s middle order. Naseem Shah, who had bowled well all day, returned to increase the pressure in the final overs.

Shaheen finished with a score of 4/35, Rauf with a score of 3/58, and Naseem with a score of 3/36.

This builds on their recent success and bodes well for the Men in Green ahead of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup.

The 138-run fifth-wicket stand between Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya was a bright spot for India. This was India’s highest fifth wicket partnership against Pakistan in ODIs.

Kishan, who batted in his preferred top-order position, stood out in particular. He came in during the 10th over, when his team was reeling from the loss of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Shreyas  Iyer.

Kishan was quickly among the runs after getting his eye in. In the 12th over, he hit a six off Rauf’s short ball. Kishan, like Pandya, milked the Pakistan spinners in the middle overs as India gradually clawed their way back into the game.

Kishan eventually fell for 82 runs, with nine fours and two sixes. Hardik played his part as well, scoring an 87 but losing to Shaheen’s slower one.

Pakistan now has three points in Group A and has qualified for the Super Four stage of the tournament. India will now face Nepal in the Asia Cup’s final Group A match.
