India’s victory against Nepal in the quarterfinals of the 2023 Asia Cup

India advanced to the Asia Cup Final Four with a 10 wicket victory over Nepal in a match that was cut short due to rain in Pallekele, Sri Lanka.

Rain postponed the start of India’s chase after Nepal was bowled out for 230 in 48.2 overs in their Group A match.

The new aim, 145 runs in 23 overs using the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern formula, was easily achieved with 17 balls to spare.

Rohit Sharma, the captain, scored 74 runs not out off 59 balls, and Shubman Gill scored 67 runs not out off 62.

India, along with Pakistan and Bangladesh, has advanced to the 50-over tournament’s Super Four group stage, where each team will play the others once before the final on September 17.

If Sri Lanka can avoid a crushing loss to Afghanistan on Tuesday in Lahore, Pakistan, they would also qualify.

The Group A match between India and Pakistan on Saturday was postponed due to rain, but the two teams will play each other again on September 10 in Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka.

Due to political difficulties, matches between Pakistan and India have only been played since 2013 in ICC global events or in Asia Cup matches at neutral locations.
