India vs. Pakistan Asia Cup 2023 Live Score: Ishan Kishan (82) and Hardik Pandya (87) helped India get to 266 after Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf made a mess of things early in Saturday’s group stage match between India and Pakistan in Pallekele. Pakistan’s best bowler was Afridi, who took four wickets. Rauf and Naseem Shah each took three wickets, making it the first time in Asia Cup history that all 10 wickets were taken by pacers. In the first game of the event, India’s captain, Rohit Sharma, won the toss and chose to bat first.
Report on the pitch by Ravi Shastri
The last pitch, which was used when Pakistan played Nepal, had less green than this one. This song seems slow, and its bounce can be a little low. You might see the ball grip or spin right away. On this track, a score between 260 and 270 can be hard.
