Asia Cup 2023: Ground Staffs Implement Unique Technique To Dry Outfield


The rain-marred reserve day for the clash between arch-nemesis India and Pakistan was called off. They faced each other in third match in the Super Four stage of Asia Cup 2023 in Colombo. The ground staffs used a unique method to dry the outfield.

Babar Azam won the toss and elected to bowl, Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill got India off to a great start. However, Pakistan fought back by dismissing the openers in quick succession to reduce India to 123/2 in 17.5 overs.

KL Rahul and Virat Kohli were starting to build a decent partnership before rain stopped play. After the rain subsided, the ground staff were spotted using a unique technique to dry the outfield. They were seen using a few electric fans to quicken the process of drying the outfield.

Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill showcased a great partnership with half-centuries that helped India reach 147 for 2 against Pakistan before rain poured. The umpires waited and eventually decided that further play wouldn’t be possible on the day.

Therefore, the match will resume to the reserve day on Monday, September 11, and India will start their innings from 147/2 in what would remain a 50-over contest.

The reserve day’s play will start from 3 PM IST onwards, after the rain stopped the proceedings at 4.52 PM this day.
