PAK vs IND Pitch Report
The R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo has a spinner-friendly surface; the batters should look to be patient earlier on in the start of the innings and slowly build their knocks. A high-scoring encounter is unlikely on such a surface. Opting to bowl first could be a wise decision.

Probable Best Performers:
Probable Best Batter
Virat Kohli (India)
Ace Indian batter Virat Kohli could be the best batter for his side in the upcoming game against Pakistan. Kohli failed to make an impact against Pakistan in match 3 of the group stage and did not get a chance to feature with the bat against Nepal. Hence, if gets to bat against the arch-rivals, Kohli could be a driving factor for India.
Probable Best Bowler
Shaheen Afridi (Pakistan)
Pakistan’s Shaheen Afridi could be the best bowler for his side in the upcoming game against India. With seven wickets in three matches in the Asia Cup 2023 so far, Afridi is one of the highest wicket-takers, and he will look to replicate his form against India as well.
