The much-awaited match between India and Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2023 has been called off due to rain and will be resumed tomorrow, September 11, 2023, at 9:00 AM IST. The match was stopped at 24.1 overs with India at 147/2.

The match was being played at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, Sri Lanka. The weather forecast for tomorrow is for mostly cloudy skies with a slight chance of rain. However, the ground staff is confident that the match will be able to resume tomorrow.

The India-Pakistan match is one of the most anticipated matches in cricket. The two teams have a long and storied rivalry, and the matches between them are always closely contested. The match is also important for both teams as it will help them to decide their positions in the Super Fours.

If the weather cooperates tomorrow, the match is likely to be completed. It will be a great opportunity for both teams to play some good cricket and give the fans a thrilling match.

The Asia Cup is currently played in the 50-over One Day International (ODI) format. However, it has also been played in the Twenty20 International (T20I) format in the past.

The current format of the Asia Cup consists of two groups of four teams. The top two teams from each group qualify for the Super Fours. The top two teams from the Super Fours then play in the final.

The most successful team in the Asia Cup is India followed by Sri Lanka which is also a defending champion. India has won the tournament seven times while Sri Lanka won six times.

The Asia Cup was first held in 1984 in Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates where the council’s offices were based (until 1995). The tournament has been held every two years since then, with the exception of 1993, which was cancelled due to political tensions between India and Pakistan.
