The high-voltage match between India and Pakistan in the ongoing Asia Cup was washed out on Saturday. Both the teams shared one point each.

Both India and Pakistan are placed in group A along with minnows Nepal. While it was India’s opening match of the tournament, Pakistan have already put up a dominating display against Nepal in their first match. They have registered a resounding 238-run win over Nepal in their first match in Multan. With three points from two matches, Pakistan’s Super Four stage is confirmed.

The Men in Blue are currently occupying the second position with one point while Nepal are third with none.

Nepal would have to pull off an upset victory over six-time winners of the Asia Cup to jeopardy India’s chances in Super Four. 

India need only another match without a result to qualify. The only way for the Men in Blue not to reach the next stage, is if they lose to Nepal in their next match, which is scheduled to take place in Pallekele on Monday.
