India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2023: Pallekele Stadium Pitch Report, Weather Update, Probable Playing XI, Head-to-head, Match Prediction

The third match of the Asia Cup 2023 will feature longtime rivals India and Pakistan. The match is scheduled to take place on September 2, 2023, at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, and it promises to be a tremendous battle.

For India, this match marks the beginning of their campaign in the Asia Cup 2023. India, a cricketing powerhouse with a powerful batting lineup and bowling attack, would be eager to get off to a good start in this Asia Cup. However, Pakistan already set the tone for the tournament with an outstanding victory against Nepal in their opening game. Their dominating victory by 238 runs showed their skill in the batting and bowling departments. Riding high on confidence, Pakistan aims to carry this momentum into the clash against India.

One element that both teams have to contend with is the unpredictable weather in Sri Lanka. Rain, a common visitor during the monsoon season, can often play spoilsport in cricket matches. The threat of rain looms large over this much-anticipated encounter. In a washout, Pakistan would automatically qualify for the Super 4 stage, securing two crucial points. For India, a rain-induced washout would present a tricky scenario. They would then need to win their next match against Nepal to secure a spot in the Super 4.
