Asia Cup 2023: As India-Pakistan clash moves to Reserve Day, check Colombo’s weather forecast for September 11

The ongoing Asia Cup continues to be a disappointing event with all the rain happening at the Sri Lankan venues, Pallekele and now Colombo. It seems all the rain in Sri Lanka is happening in India’s matches and it came to haunt the Men in Blue once again in the high-octane clash against Pakistan in the Super Fours on Sunday, September 10. The forecast wasn’t as encouraging but the heavens showed some mercy for a couple of hours with 24.1 overs of play getting possible before rain came.
The first downpour was really heavy, catching the groundsmen too by surprise. The rain stopped after half an hour but since it was heavy, the puddles were formed and the patches took nearly two hours to be dried. After a couple of inspections and the use of mats, sand and makeshift fans, it seemed like the game was finally resuming only for the rain to come again. The rain forced the match to reserve day, which will resume from where it was left off with a full 50-over game to be played.
