Sometimes foam, sometimes fans…still the excitement is on fire, whom is Ashwin saluting?

New Delhi. The Asia Cup Super Four match between India and Pakistan (IND vs PAK) could not be completed due to rain. Now this match has gone to reserve day. That means this incomplete match will now be played on Monday. Batting first, the Indian team had scored 147 runs for 2 wickets. After this the game could not be resumed due to torrential rain. After the rain stopped, the groundsman made a lot of efforts to make the field suitable for playing, but the intermittent rains spoiled his hard work. However, seeing the way the groundsman took measures to dry the field, fans and even veteran cricketer R Ashwin did not lag behind in saluting.

India had scored 147 runs for 2 wickets in 24.1 overs until the game was stopped due to rain at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka. The match will now start from here on Monday at 3:00 pm. Virat Kohli and Lokesh Rahul are playing with eight and 17 runs respectively. This means that after playing yesterday, the Indian team will have to play Sri Lanka in the next match of Super Four in less than 24 hours.
