In anticipation of potential rain disruptions, a reserve day has been included for the Super Four clash between Pakistan and India in the Asia Cup, set to take place in Colombo, Sri Lanka on Sunday, September 10.
On September 2, rain played spoilsport, washing out the Pakistan-India ODI at the Pallakele Stadium in Sri Lanka and delivering an anticlimactic conclusion as the Green Shirts were left eagerly awaiting their turn to bat. Multiple weather forecasts predicted a high probability of rain on Sunday, particularly during match hours. However, according to US-based forecaster AccuWeather, the likelihood of rain on Monday is even higher than on Sunday.
it is the only match apart from the final to have a reserve day. According to a statement issued by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), a “reserve day has been incorporated” for the high-voltage tie scheduled at the R. Premadasa International Cricket Stadium in Colombo.
“If adverse weather suspends play during the Pakistan versus India game, the match will continue on 11th September 2023 from the point at which it was suspended,” the statement said. Ticket holders were advised to retain their match tickets which will remain valid and will be utilized for the reserve day.
