IND vs PAK Asia Cup 2023: The 2023 Asia Cup will see a great Super 4 match between India and Pakistan. Although the match date was September 10, which the fans were eagerly waiting for, Team India’s batting could not even be completed as rain fell in the meantime and the match could not be resumed. Fearing rain, ACC i.e. the Asian Cricket Council had already announced that a reserve day would be provided for this match. If the game cannot be completed on the 10th, it can also be played on the 11th. In such a situation, if the weather remains clear today and there is no rain, the remaining game will start from the same place where it left off on the first day. Meanwhile, a decision by Pakistan captain Babar Azam seems to weigh heavily on the team. Let us talk about it.

Pakistan captain Babar Azam won the toss and chose to bowl first.

In fact, in that Asia Cup match between India and Pakistan, Pakistan captain Babar Azam won the toss and decided to bowl first, which meant Team India was called to bat. Earlier in this Asia Cup, when Rohit Sharma won the toss, he had decided to bat first. Then the Pakistani pace battery trio had badly damaged the top position of the Indian team. Shaheen Shah Afridi, Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf gave the Indian batsmen a lot of trouble and along with Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli also got out cheaply and went to the pavilion. After that, Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya took charge. This enabled the Indian team to achieve a respectable result. However, due to rain, this game was washed out and could not be completed.

This time in the Asia Cup, when Babar Azam won the toss, the memories of the previous game were probably still fresh in his mind, so he decided to bowl first without thinking about it. But this time it was different. This time captain Rohit Sharma attacked from the start. He made his intentions clear by hitting Shaheen Shah Afridi for a six in the very first over. As soon as Shubman Gill got a chance after that, he too didn’t stay behind and followed Shaheen with bated breath. Both initially brought the team’s score to 50, and in no time the score exceeded the 100 mark. Meanwhile, there were a few occasions when the Indian batsmen were in trouble and Pakistan had a chance for wickets but that couldn’t happen. Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill completed their respective half-centuries in no time.

In this game, Team India’s initial score fell until the total reached 121. Rohit Sharma became the victim of Shadab Khan after scoring 56 runs in 49 balls. After this, Shaheen Shah Afridi sent Shubman Gill to the pavilion after scoring 58 runs in 52 balls. At that point, Team India’s score was 123 runs. After that, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul took charge. But only a few minutes of the game were over when the rain came and didn’t stop until the end. Looking at it this way, Team India currently has a run average of around six. If this continues, the Indian team can score around 300 points, which will not be easy for Pakistan to achieve. In such a situation, it can be said that Pakistan team captain Babar Azam’s decision to bowl first after winning the toss may not prove to be a burden for the Pakistan team.
