India vs Pakistan Asia Cup Super Four Match is scheduled on September 10, 2023, at R. Premadasa Cricket Stadium, Colombo because heavy rain is expected on September 10, 2023. ACC wanted to avoid having another India vs Pakistan Asia Cup match disrupted by rain. With the ACC’s decision to have a reserve day, a high-intensity match like India vs Pakistan will have a clear result.
The playing conditions for the Asia Cup Final are not good due to the chances of heavy rain. ACC already declared September 18 as a reserved day for the Asia Cup Final. The final of Asia Cup 2023 is scheduled on September 17, 2023, between the Top two teams of the Super Four Stage.
After announcing the reserve day for the India vs Pakistan Super Four match, the ACC has not publicly announced the playing conditions of the India vs Pakistan match.
In both matches with a reserve day, ACC will try to finish the game on the scheduled day, even if it means making it shorter. If the match goes to the reserve day, the contest’s end time will be the same as the time when the last ball was bowled on the original match day.
Why India vs Pakistan match will have reserve day?
Due to heavy rain in Pallekele, the first match between India and Pakistan ended with no result. To avoid such circumstances, ACC announced the reserve day for the India vs Pakistan Super Four match on September 11, 2023, in Colombo.
The decision was made by ACC after seeing the weather forecast of Colombo. The official host of Asia Cup 2023, PCB, wanted to move the venue from Colombo to Hambantota, but the stakeholders and broadcasters of the Asia Cup sent a message to ACC, asking them not to change the location.
