Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar issued a massive warning to the Indian team ahead of the upcoming Super Four clash between the two teams in the ongoing Asia Cup. Shoaib Akhtar further mentioned that the weather was fine in Colombo on Saturday.

The Rohit Sharma-led team faced the Babar Azam-led team in the group stage match of the tournament in Pallekele last week. However, the match was abandoned due to the rain. India scored 266 runs after opting to bat first, but the second innings didn’t happen.
