Venkatesh Prasad slams ACC after reserve day allotted only for India vs Pakistan Super 4 clash

Former India pacer Venkatesh Prasad has slammed the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) after it announced to allot a reserve day for the highy-anticipated India vs Pakistan Super 4s clash on Sunday in Colombo.

Earlier, the group match between India and Pakistan was abandoned due to rain and their is high chance of another heavy spell of rain during their Super 4 clash on Sunday due to which the ACC decided to keep a reserve day.

However, the ACC’s decision sparked some controversy as the other Super four matches haven’t been allotted a reserve day.

Former India pacer Prasad, lashed out at the ACC, saying that it would be unethical if the rules are different for just two teams.

“If true this is absolute shamelessness this. The organisers have made a mockery and it is unethical to have a tournament with rules being different for the other two teams. In the name of justice, will only be fair if it is abandoned the first day, may it rain harder on the second day and these malicious plans not succeed,” wrote Prasad on X.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka head coach Chris Silverwood and Bangladesh coach Chandika Hathurasingha were also unhappy over the unilateral decision to provide a reserve day exclusively for the Super 4s match between the arch-rivals.
