Prasad expressed his concerns, suggesting that it would be unethical if differing rules were applied solely to accommodate two specific 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.
The initial India-Pakistan match had to be called off due to rain, and with the likelihood of another substantial rain spell during their scheduled clash on Sunday, the organisers opted to include a reserve day on Monday as a precaution.
This decision by ACC sparked some controversy, as the other Super four matches haven’t been given the same privilege.
