Former captain Wasim Akram provided weather update from Kandy ahead of the Asia Cup 2023 match between arch-rivals India and Pakistan today. 

Akram said that the weather is likely to improve ahead of the highly-anticipated clash. 

Earlier, it was reported that the match could be affected by heavy rain.

Pakistan began their Asia Cup 2023 campaign on a high with a massive 238-run win over Nepal on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, India will kick start their tournament with the match against their traditional rivals Pakistan.

"All the best to both the teams but remember that it is just a match. One team will win and other will lose. Just support your teams and enjoy good cricket," Akram added. 

India have the upper hand against Pakistan with seven wins in 13 Asia Cup (ODI) matches. Meanwhile, Pakistan have won five with one match ending in no result.

Pakistan have also lost four of the last five matches against India in the Asia Cup, with their last win coming in Mirpur in 2014. It was the same match where Shahid Afridi hit two consecutive sixes against Ravichandran Ashwin in the last over to get Pakistan over the line.

The Asia Cup 2023 will be held in Pakistan and Sri Lanka between August 30 and September 17.
