The remaining matches in the Super 4 round of the 2023 Asia Cup are scheduled to take place in Colombo, Sri Lanka, but there’s a concern about heavy rains disrupting these upcoming games. According to The Weather Channel, thunderstorms are expected daily in Colombo until September 17.
Pakistan got their Super 4 campaign off to a good start by defeating Bangladesh by seven wickets on Wednesday. If the remaining Super 4 matches are affected by rain and unable to be played, Pakistan will advance to the final with four points.
In the event of rainouts, both Sri Lanka and India will have three points each, and their Net Run Rates will also be identical. In such a scenario, a coin toss will be used to determine which team will compete in the final.
Bangladesh, having already lost a game in the Super Four, will only have two points if the matches are washed out, and they won’t be in contention for the final.
If the final match of the 2023 Asia Cup on September 17 is also washed out, the trophy will be shared among the competing teams.
