Pakistan batter Agha Salman sustains injury during Asia Cup 2023 match

Pakistan cricket team batter Agha Salman sustained an injury that left his face bloodied during the Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 match against India on Monday. The right-handed batter tried to sweep a delivery from Ravindra Jadeja but the ball bounced and took the top edge of his bat before hitting him straight on the face. He was visibly in pain after the incident and the wound started bleeding as the Pakistan physio rushed onto the field. KL Rahul was one of the first ones on the field to quickly check on him after the incident and his gesture has quickly gone viral on social media following the incident.

Record-breaking win for India in the Asia Cup

Virat Kohli’s supreme fitness was evident in his 47th ODI century while comeback man KL Rahul produced an equally engaging ton on his comeback as India thrashed a listless Pakistan by a record 228-run margin in a rain-marred Super Four game of the Asia Cup.

This is India’s biggest win in terms of runs against the cross-border neighbours.

Key highlights of the match:

  • India posted an imposing 356 for 2, with Kohli scoring 122 not out off 94 balls and Rahul scoring 111 not out off 106 balls.
  • Kuldeep Yadav took 5 wickets for 25 runs, scything through the Pakistani batting line-up.
  • Kohli is now just two centuries away from breaking Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 ODI centuries.
  • Kohli and Rahul amassed a 233-run unbeaten partnership for the third wicket, the highest ODI partnership for India against Pakistan.
