Kandy Weather Update India Vs Nepal Asia Cup 2023: Will Team India’s 2nd Match Get Washed Out Due To Rain
India is ready to resume their Asia Cup 2023 campaign at the Pallekele International Cricket Ground in Kandy, Sri Lanka, when they play Nepal, who are playing in their first competition.
The Men in Blue's campaign got off to a sad start as the rain forced the cancellation of their match versus Pakistan, their bitter rivals.
Against Nepal on Monday, September 4, India would be hoping to win the championship for the first time, but it appears that weather would also be a factor in this match.
For the duration of the game, there is a significant possibility of rain. Accuweather.com predicts that Kandy will be completely covered in clouds during the day. There is an 89% probability of rain during the day, with 3.5 hours of showers expected.
There is a 68% probability of rain in the evening, and 2.5 hours of showers are expected. Therefore, the likelihood is that India will suffer the same fate as they did in their first-round match against Pakistan.
In the event that the game is cancelled, Nepal and India will each receive one point. In that scenario, India will have gained two points, with one point previously earned as a result of the preceding match's cancellation. India will therefore advance to the Super Four stage by placing second in Group A.
No Bumrah Jasprit
For the match against Nepal, India's top bowler Jasprit Bumrah won't be available. This is as a result of the 29-year-old's personal return to his hometown. He'll rejoin the team in time for the Super 4 stage.
Mohammad Shami, who was not present for the match against Pakistan, will play in his place, and on his birthday, no less. Having missed the last game, KL Rahul will miss this one too. Ishan Kishan, who took his place, will try to build on his performance against Pakistan.
