Indian team's star batsman Jasprit Bumrah has joined Team India. Bumrah did not play for Team India in the Asia Cup 2023 match against Nepal. He has become a father for the first time. A son is born to them, who has been named Angad. He had come to Mumbai from Sri Lanka to see his child and has now joined the team ahead of the match against Pakistan.

Bumrah is returning to the Indian team after a long time. After playing in the T20 match against Australia last year, he played in the T20 series against Ireland almost a year later. However, now after more than a year, he will play an ODI match. Bumrah was in the team in the match against Pakistan, but he did not get a chance to bowl.

Chances of rain during the match in Colombo

This match between India and Pakistan is to be played at R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka. It has been raining continuously in Colombo for the last few days. There was even talk of withdrawing hosting of the matches from him. It was believed that the matches would be shifted to Hambantota or Dambulla, but this did not happen. Now all the remaining matches of Asia Cup will be played here.

In the current edition of Asia Cup, the second match between India and Pakistan will be played on Sunday. A match was played between the two teams in the group round on September 2, but it was canceled due to rain. The interesting thing is that the India-Pakistan match is the only match in Super-4 for which a reserve day has been kept. This facility will not be available for any other match of Super-4. Apart from this, there is a reserve day for the final to be held on September 17.
