Colombo Weather Updates, India Vs Sri Lanka Asia Cup 2023 Super 4: Rain To Play Spoilsport, India’s Game Maybe CANCELLED Again
Since Team India arrived in Sri Lanka for the Asia Cup 2023, it has been raining all the time. Their first Group A match, against Pakistan, was rained out on September 2 at the Pallekele International Stadium in Kandy, and their second Group A match on September 4 at the same stadium was also cut short by rain.
The first Super 4 match between the Indian cricket team and Pakistan also took two days to finish. India beat Pakistan by 228 runs on Reserve Day on Monday.
The rainy weather in Colombo is not likely to stop any time soon, as it is expected to rain again on Tuesday, when Team India plays Sri Lanka in their second Super 4 match at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.
The MET office says that there is a 34% chance of rain or clouds on Tuesday afternoon, when India plays Sri Lanka. There is a 90% chance of rain on Tuesday, and there is a 60% chance of rain around 3pm IST, when the toss takes place.
In the afternoon, there will be 92% cloud cover over Colombo, and the humidity will be around 77%. By evening, the temperature will drop from 30 degrees to around 27 degrees, but the humidity will rise to 84% and there will be 96% cloud cover.
The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) hasn't planned a "Reserve Day" for any of the Super 4 matches except for the one between India and Pakistan. So, if Tuesday's match between India and Sri Lanka is rained out, both teams will get 1 point.
India is on top of the table right now with 2 points from 1 game. Pakistan and Sri Lanka also have 2 points each after beating Bangladesh.
As the field crews have done a great job getting the stadiums ready for the Asia Cup 2023, the India vs. Pakistan game in Kandy is the only one that will not be played at all. "All we wanted to do was play some games in the park.
A lot of guys have never done that. That could only happen because the groundsmen worked so hard. I know how hard it is to put covers on the whole ground and take them off. Team India's leader, Rohit Sharma, said after Monday's win over Pakistan, "On behalf of the whole team, we'd like to thank them."
