PAK vs IND: Ram-Siyaram echoed in Lanka, Pandya-Ishan were beating here, whole stadium danced in devotion


Pallekele: Both Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya, usually big shots, had to play with restraint to counter Pakistan’s blistering pace attack. He had to be careful in the selection of shots to rectify India’s poor start in Asia Cup 2023. After losing four wickets for 66 runs in the 15th over, when Hardik (87) and Ishaan (82) took care of the team, the Indian fans sitting in the stadium were dancing in devotion to the tune of Ram-Siyaram, Siyaram-Jai-Jayaram.

The song can be heard clearly in the viral video on social media, although Navbharattimes Online does not confirm the veracity of the video. Talking about the match, on the basis of brilliant half-century innings of Hardik Pandya and Ishaan Kishan, India scored 266 runs in 48.5 overs, recovering from the initial shock given by Shaheen Shah Afridi.
Ishaan contributed 82 runs in 81 balls and Pandya contributed 87 runs in 90 balls. Both gave a strong score to the team by sharing 138 runs in 141 balls for the fifth wicket. Earlier, Pakistani pacers Afridi and Haris Rauf combined to bundle out India’s top order for 66 runs in 14.1 overs. Afridi took four wickets for 35 runs while Rauf took three wickets for 58 runs. Naseem Shah also got three wickets.

It was not easy to play big strokes, so Pandya and Kishan took the innings forward with aces and two runs. India’s 50 runs were completed in just 52 balls. While Ishan was the aggressor at the beginning of the partnership, Pandya was playing the role of his partner. Ishaan came out to bat below number four for the first time but didn’t seem fazed at all. Pakistani captain Babar Azam also gave long spells to his spinners Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz and Salman Agha, which facilitated Ishaan to settle down at the crease. After this, Jasprit Bumrah took India beyond 250. At the end of the Indian innings, it started raining again.
