The Super 4 round of the Asia Cup 2023 has started. The first game was played between Pakistan and Bangladesh. In this game, the Pakistani team defeated Bangladesh by 7 wickets. The Pakistani team has to play the next Super 4 game against India. This game will be played on September 10th. Previously, the group stage game between the two teams had been canceled due to rain. At the same time, there is a large chance of rain, even during the Super 4 game. Because of this, this game can also be cancelled.
Rain becomes the villain
The Super 4 round match between India and Pakistan will be played in Colombo. Before this game, take a look at the weather in Colombo. The chance of rain on game day, ie September 10th, is up to 90%. At the same time, the maximum temperature throughout the day is expected to be 29 degrees and the minimum temperature will be 24 degrees. All of Sri Lanka’s Asian Cup matches are subject to rain. In such a situation, during the India vs Pakistan game, the fans might face big problems again. In the last game, when the teams of India and Pakistan competed against each other, Team India struggled first, but in the second inning of the game not a single ball could be thrown due to the rain.
The games take place exclusively in Colombo
A total of six matches will be played in the Asia Cup 2023 Super 4, of which the first match was played in Lahore, Pakistan on Wednesday, September 6th. Otherwise, all five games should be played in Colombo. Given the rain and weather forecast, there was an opportunity to change the venue of these games. However, the ACC has clarified that all five matches, including the final, will be played in Colombo only. The biggest question now is whether the ACC didn’t know about the weather in advance and if the ACC did know then why didn’t they make a proper decision.
