Rain disrupts the Pakistan match, forcing India to resume two down.

The highly anticipated Super Four match between India and Pakistan at the Asia Cup will be extended into a second day after rain washed out the majority of play on Sunday.

India had reached 147/2 from 24.1 when the heavens opened on Sunday, and no further play was possible despite the efforts of the ground staff at R.Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.

KL Rahul (17) and Virat Kohli (8) will resume as India’s not out batters on Monday, and every effort will be made to complete the match on the reserve day.

The reserve day was added to this vital Super Four match last week, making it, along with the final, the only game at the Asia Cup with the chance of being finished on an additional day.

Pakistan now leads the Super Four table after an excellent victory over Bangladesh in the tournament’s opening match, while India has to win to stay pace with its archrival and Sri Lanka.

India will most likely wind up playing three days in a row in Colombo, with their Super Four encounter against Sri Lanka slated for Tuesday.
