Impending Heavy Rains Threaten to Disrupt Asia Cup Super 4 Matches in Colombo

The Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 round scheduled to take place in Colombo, Sri Lanka is under threat due to the forecast of heavy rains in the coming days. According to The Weather Channel, thunderstorms are expected daily in Colombo until September 17, which could potentially disrupt the remaining matches.

Pakistan has already made a strong start to their Super 4 campaign, defeating Bangladesh by seven wickets on Wednesday. However, if the remaining matches are washed out due to the predicted weather conditions, Pakistan will automatically qualify for the final with four points.

In the event of washouts, Sri Lanka and India would be tied on three points each, along with the same Net Run Rate. This would necessitate a coin toss to determine which team would proceed to the final. Bangladesh, having already lost one game in the Super Four, would only have two points and thus would not be in contention for the final.

The upcoming matches include Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh on September 9, Pakistan vs India on September 10, India vs Sri Lanka on September 12, Pakistan vs Sri Lanka on September 14, and India vs Bangladesh on September 15. All matches are set to begin at 2:30 pm (PST) in Colombo.

The final of the Asia Cup 2023 is scheduled for September 17. If this match is also washed out due to the weather, the trophy will be shared between the qualifying teams.

As cricket fans and teams alike keep an eye on the weather updates, it remains to be seen how these anticipated thunderstorms will impact the Asia Cup 2023 Super 4 matches.
