Asia Cup 2023: “Dismal State…” – Social Media Slams India vs Pakistan Reserve Day Plans

Social media users were quite critical of the Asian Cricket Council’s (ACC) decision to schedule a reserve day solely for the Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 match between Pakistan and India on Sunday. Rain forced the cancellation of the two teams’ group stage match, so the organizers added a reserve day to ensure that cricket fans could watch the much awaited match. Fans immediately brought attention to the favoritism on show and demanded that all matches in the competition be handled similarly because no other Super 4 game had a reserve day.

The Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 match between Pakistan and India is set to take place on September 10, 2023, at the R. Premadasa International Cricket Stadium in Colombo, according to a statement from the ACC. “A reserve day has been incorporated,” the statement read.

The statement said, “If inclement weather suspends play during the Pakistan vs. India game, the match will resume on September 11, 2023, from the point it was suspended.

The Asia Cup final, which is scheduled to take place on September 17, has already been given a reserve day due to the intense rain in the capital of Sri Lanka.

The ACC advised fans to keep their match tickets, as they would still be valid on the reserve day, in such a situation.

Zaka Ashraf, the head of the PCB management committee, recently sent a letter to Jay Shah, the chairman of the ACC, requesting compensation for reportedly losing a sizable sum of money on gate receipts as a result of weak audience response for matches in the island nation.

The reserve day is the most amicable resolution that could have been achieved amid mounting tension between the continental organization and the tournament hosts, even though there is not even the slightest prospect that ACC will offer any compensation to PCB.
