Asia Cup 2023: Rain most likely to abandon India vs Pakistan

The much-anticipated clash, India vs Pakistan at the Asia Cup 2023 is teetering on the brink of disruption, thanks to an impending thunderstorm set to hit Kandy on Saturday.

Weather Threat Looms Over India vs Pakistan Asia Cup Showdown

According to the latest updates from BBC Weather, there’s a daunting 70 percent probability of rain on September 2 in Kandy, accompanied by thick cloud cover blanketing the sky throughout the day. The forecast for Kandy appears persistently cloudy with intermittent light to moderate rain spells, extending well into September 8.

The gloomy outlook doesn’t end there. Heavy rain is also anticipated on Friday night and into the wee hours of Saturday morning. This downpour may very well result in a delayed start to the much-anticipated encounter between the neighboring cricket powerhouses.

India and Pakistan only cross paths in ACC or ICC events, and the stage is set at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium for this monumental showdown. The last time these two cricketing giants clashed was in the T20 World Cup 2022, where Rohit Sharma’s side triumphed in a thrilling battle at the MCG.

In the Asia Cup 2022, India emerged victorious in the opening encounter, while Pakistan had the upper hand in the Super Fours game. Pakistan progressed to the final showdown against Sri Lanka but narrowly missed clinching the coveted trophy.
