The Pakistan vs India Super 4 match in Asia Cup 2023 finally resumed on Monday, September 11, the reserve day for the game, after rain halted the proceedings on Sunday. India resumed their innings on 147/2 after 24.1 overs and posted a mammoth score of 356/2 in their allotted 50 overs courtesy of hundreds from Virat Kohli (122* off 94) and KL Rahul (111* off 106).
Rahul impressed everyone on his comeback with his stupendous hundred and was even spotted donning the wicketkeeping gloves from the seventh over onwards. Notably, Ishan Kishan had started the innings as India’s wicketkeeper and kept the wickets till the sixth over before handing over the responsibility to Rahul. The 31-year-old went through wicketkeeping drills ahead of the fixture and was deemed fit to keep the wickets.
Hence, he was given some much-needed exposure of donning the gloves in a high-pressure game ahead of the ODI World Cup 2023 scheduled to begin from October 05 in India.
