Ahead of the crucial India vs. Pakistan Asia Cup 2023 Super Four game at R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, the weather is looking good for the game. According to the latest weather reports, there is no rain in Colombo today. However, clouds are hovering over the city, and they might drop during the day.
However, on Saturday, the Bangladesh vs. Sri Lanka game was completed without a single drop as it remained cloudy but didn’t rain throughout the day. On Sunday, fans and the Asian Cricket Council will be keen to get a complete game. Meanwhile, due to a change in rules, the ACC has announced a reserve day for the marquee game. If the game fails to be completed on Sunday, it will be played on Monday to get a complete game.
Currently, the weather prediction says that there are up to 90% chances of rain throughout the second half of the game. The match might start on time as there are very few chances of rain in the daytime. However, according to the Metrological Department, there are chances of heavy rainfall and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Meanwhile, the morning in Colombo is looking good for the game, with the sun out in the sky.
India needs to win against Pakistan to stay alive in the Asia Cup
It’s worth noting that India will need to beat Pakistan in the Super 4 game to stay alive in the ongoing tournament. After winning against Bangladesh in the Super 4 game, Pakistan will be looking to beat India and qualify for the finals of the tournament. On the other hand, the Indian team will be keen to beat Babar Azam’s team to stay alive in the competition.
A victory is needed for India as Sri Lanka beat Bangladesh last night. The team will need to match the points table, or a mistake or washout might put them in trouble. Meanwhile, India will play three out of the next four matches in the Super Four stage, which is also going to affect their campaign. After Sunday’s game, the team will face Sri Lanka on September 12 and Bangladesh on September 15.
