Rain returns with India struggling at 51/3

Pallekele, Sep 2 (PTI) A second spell of rain halted play when India were struggling at 51 for three in 11.2 overs in the Asia Cup clash against Pakistan here on Saturday.

Rain returned to the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in the 12th over after a skillful spell of fast bowling from Shaheen Afridi sent the Indian batting mainstays Rohit Sharma (11 off 22) and Virat Kohli (4 off 7), back into the dressing room.

The third batter to be dismissed was Shreyas Iyer (14 off 9) who pulled a shot ball from Haris Rauf straight to the midwicket fielder. Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan were batting on six and two respectively.

The first stoppage due to rain came when India reached 15 for no loss.
