India vs. Pakistan, Colombo Weather Report: The stage is set for the Super 4 clash between India and Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2023. The two countries will face off for the second time. The highly anticipated Super 4s match between India and Pakistan is set for today, September 10, 2023, at the R. Premadasa International Cricket Stadium in Colombo, Sri Lanka. More than a billion fans are awaiting news after the previous India vs. Pakistan Asia Cup 2023 match was canceled due to rain. Last week’s group stage match between India and Pakistan in Pallekele was called off due to rain, with both teams earning a point each. The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) added a reserve day to the blockbuster match between India and Pakistan on Friday.
The weather in Colombo cleared up on Friday after two days of rain, allowing teams to practice. The highly anticipated clash between these bitter rivals today in Colombo, however, may be derailed by rain, according to the Colombo weather forecast, so fans should prepare themselves for yet another letdown. As excitement grows for the meeting of these two Asian powerhouses, the weather is casting a shadow over the match as the forecast indicates that rain could ruin both the game day and the reserve day.
