The rain continues to disturb the proceedings in the Asia Cup 2023 as the game between India and Nepal was stopped, with the latter being on 178/6 in 37.5 overs. Earlier, the clash between the Men in Blue and Pakistan was called off due to persistent downpour.
Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to bat first in the ongoing contest. Nepal were not traumatized by a big team like India, and the batters played freely.
Aasif Sheikh (58) and Kushal Bhurtel (38) were phenomenal as openers. Dipendra Singh Airee (27 not out) and Gulsan Jha (23) also made valuable contributions. If this game is abandoned, India will reach the Super-4 stage.
