The Super 4 matches in the ongoing Asia Cup 2023 face uncertainty due to the persistently bad weather and predictions of rain in Colombo, Sri Lanka. This weather challenge has raised questions about the fate of the remaining matches.
Even though they are aware that the Super Four matches can be affected by the rain, the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) has opted not to move any of the matches from Colombo.
If the remaining Super 4 matches cannot be played and are washed out, Pakistan, having defeated Bangladesh with a seven-wicket victory earlier, will secure a spot in the final with four points.
Bangladesh, having already lost one Super Four game, will have only two points and won’t be in contention for the final.
In the event of washouts, both Sri Lanka and India will find themselves tied with three points each, along with identical Net Run Rates. In such a scenario, a coin toss will determine which team advances to the final, a decision as unpredictable as the weather itself.
If, unfortunately, the final on September 17 is also washed out, the trophy will be shared among the teams, highlighting the impact of nature’s unpredictability on this prestigious cricket tournament
