Here’s How Much Target Sri Lanka will Get in 27 Overs if Pakistan Don’t Bat Again

The highly anticipated Asia Cup 2023 encounter between Pakistan and Sri Lanka faced yet another interruption, this time courtesy of the rain gods. In Colombo, as the clock struck the end of the 28th over at the R. Premadasa Stadium, the heavens opened up, causing a delay in the proceedings.

Before the rain intervened, Pakistan found themselves in a somewhat precarious situation, having lost the wicket of their skipper, Babar Azam. This match had taken on immense significance for both sides.

As the rain delay continued, the scenario grew increasingly complex. If Pakistan doesn’t get the opportunity to bat again, and the same overs are allocated to Sri Lanka, the island nation’s revised target would be 158 runs in 27 overs. This development further heightened the stakes of the contest.

For both teams, this game has transformed into a virtual semi-final, offering a shot at redemption in the final. If rain were to wash out the match today, Sri Lanka would secure their spot in the final due to their superior run rate when compared to the Green Shirts.

The uncertainty and drama surrounding the match added an extra layer of anticipation to the already tense showdown.
