Pak vs Ind: Playing conditions for the reserve day

  • Pak vs Ind clash in Asia Cup 2023 Super 4s to have a reserve day due to weather concerns.
  • Only match in the tournament with a backup day; previous encounter between the two washed out.
  • Specific playing conditions outlined for the reserve day in case of weather interruptions.

The forthcoming clash between Pakistan and India in the ongoing Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 stage, scheduled for September 10th, will come equipped with a safeguard – a reserve day.

This development arises from concerns raised by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) regarding the event’s scheduling, particularly in light of the heavy rains that have been drenching Colombo. To address these concerns, the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) has acquiesced to the inclusion of a reserve day.

Should the Pakistan-India encounter on September 10th be unable to reach its conclusion due to adverse weather conditions, the match will resume from the point of suspension on September 11th. Notably, the Pakistan vs India fixture is the sole Asia Cup contest to benefit from this reserve day.

The preliminary group stage encounter between these two cricketing giants was also affected by inclement weather on September 2nd, ending in a washout.

While the remaining matches of the Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 round are slated to unfold in Colombo, Sri Lanka, the ominous specter of unfavorable weather looms over the upcoming fixtures.

For those curious about the specific playing conditions related to the reserve day, here are some illustrative scenarios:

Example 1: A match commences with a plan for 50 overs per side. However, rain interrupts proceedings at the 18-over mark, leading to a reduction to 40 overs per side. Play is about to resume when rain intervenes again, resulting in the abandonment of play for the day. In this case, the match resumes on the Reserve Day at the originally intended 50 overs per side, with further adjustments if necessary.

Example 2: In a scenario mirroring the first, the match starts with a plan for 50 overs per side but experiences an interruption at the 19-over mark. The game’s format is then adjusted to 35 overs per side, and play is about to restart. However, rain disrupts the proceedings after one over is bowled, leading to the day’s abandonment. Since play had resumed under revised conditions, it continues on the Reserve Day with 35 overs per side, subject to further reduction if needed.

Example 3: In a match originally intended for 50 overs per side, play is hampered by early morning rain. Eventually, it is scheduled as a 30-over per side game. Teams are nominated, the toss takes place, but play remains impossible due to subsequent rain. Players return the next day, and the match finally begins on time as a 50-over per side game.
