India will take on Pakistan in Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 stage on September 10, followed by a meeting against Sri Lanka on September 12 and the Bangladesh clash on Sept 15
With Sri Lanka’s nail-biting win over Afghanistan in Lahore on Tuesday, September 5, the Super 4 schedule for the Asia Cup 2023 was finalised as the defending champions qualified from Group B as table toppers. With Afghanistan and Sri Lanka both in the hunt for a place in the Super 4 alongside Bangladesh, Dasun Shanaka’s men were able to pip the Afghanistan side and thus seal their berth in the next round of the Asia Cup.
The attention thus switches to the next phases of the continental competition as Pakistan and India qualified from Group A, and Sri Lanka and Bangladesh qualified from Group B.
For the unversed, even if India had qualified as table toppers from their group, they would have remained A2, and thus they will play their Super 4 games in Colombo.
Rohit Sharma’s men already left from Kandy to the Sri Lankan capital on Tuesday as they look to win a record-extending eighth Asia Cup title. But standing in their way will be Babar Azam’s Pakistan who dished out a clinical performance in both their group games.
