rain threatens thrilling pakistan vs india cricket match in colombo

Bad news for cricket fans! The big match between Pakistan and India in Colombo might not happen today because of bad weather. Even though they planned for an extra day for the match, it’s still uncertain if it can be played because of heavy rain predictions.

It’s been raining in Colombo since the morning and dark clouds are covering the sky. Weather experts say that there might be even heavier rain after 4 pm.

Yesterday, the game was interrupted by rain when India was batting. They had reached 147-2 in 24.1 overs. The umpires waited for almost four hours, but they had to stop the match and decided to continue it on the reserve day.

The match between these two big cricket rivals had already been affected by rain before. In a previous match, they couldn’t finish because of rain. Now the same thing happened again.

India’s opening batters, Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill, played really well. They made a strong partnership of 122 runs before the rain stopped the game. Pakistan’s fast bowler Shaheen Afridi, known for troubling India’s top order, had a tough time during this partnership but managed to take a wicket.

The rain stopped the game just when it looked like KL Rahul, who had come back from an injury, and Virat Kohli were about to help India stabilize their innings.
