Here’s What will Happen if Pakistan Vs Sri Lanka Asia Cup Super 4 Clash Washed Out

In the Asia Cup 2023, Pakistan is set to face Sri Lanka on Thursday, September 14th, in a crucial match that will decide the finalist alongside India.

Previously, on Tuesday, India defeated Sri Lanka by 41 runs, enhancing Pakistan’s chances of reaching the final.

Now, if Pakistan wants to make it to the final, they need to beat Sri Lanka, especially considering that this match will be held in Colombo, where there is an 86% chance of rain on September 14th.

Currently, India has secured their spot in the final with 4 points, while Bangladesh is out of the race. Sri Lanka and Pakistan both have two points each.

In case of continuous rain during the semifinal, both Pakistan and Sri Lanka will earn one point each, resulting in a tie with three points each. However, Sri Lanka is likely to qualify for the final due to a better run rate.

It’s also worth noting that despite being a semifinal, there is no reserve day allocated for the Sri Lanka-Pakistan match.

The outcome of the match will be dependent on the number of overs played by both teams, as per the DLS method (Duckworth-Lewis-Stern). So, it’s crucial that both teams have played a minimum number of overs for the result to be valid.

The schedule for the remaining Asia Cup matches is as follows:

  • September 14: Pakistan vs. Sri Lanka (Colombo)
  • September 15: India vs. Bangladesh (Colombo)
  • September 17: Final (Colombo)
