The wait is finally over. The countdown for the much-awaited clash between two of the biggest cricketing nations India and Pakistan, whom the world sees as arch-rivals has begun. In a few hours, the high-intensity match will start. As part of the ongoing Asia Cup, the two teams will lock horns today.
However, there were a few doubts about the possibility of the play due to the rain threat. But the reports say that there is nothing to worry about as the rain possibility will be reduced massively by the time the play starts.
Fear of rain washing away the play started with the weather conditions in Pallekele city which is hosting the match. For a couple of days, dark clouds are hinting at big rain. With this, fans who had been hoping for an intense match were worried about the match.
However, the weather reports say that there are no rain threats for the match and fans can have an opportunity to witness the entertaining match. Let us wait and see what happens concerning the match.
In the ICC tournaments, India has a better record against Arch-rival Pakistan. Pakistan won just one match against India while Men In Blue crushed Pakistan in the remaining matches. So all eyes are on the match to see what happens here.
It's in the hands of openers to give India a flying start. Rohit Sharma’s slot as opener is fixed and young opener Shubman Gill is likely to be the other opener. If they can give a good start, other key players like Virat Kohli, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Jadeje, and Shreyas Iyer(if gets a spot) can rub salt into the wounds. Pakistan has a lethal bowling attack so Indian players should be very careful.
