India vs Sri Lanka, Asia Cup 2023: What will happen if rain floods the final? – Magazine Creations

India vs Sri Lanka, Asia Cup 2023 Finals: Apart from the centuries played by Virat Kohli, KL KL and Shubman Gill, only one other thing stood out in the Asia Cup 2023 – the rain. The rain gods have made their presence felt in almost every match in the 2023 Asia Cup, especially Sri Lanka’s match in the tournament. As the tournament reaches its final match on Sunday, threats of rain still loom and cricket fans will keep their fingers crossed.

According to, there is an 80% chance of rain during the 2023 Asia Cup final between India and Sri Lanka. The weather forecast predicts thunderstorms at 10:00 AM, 1:00 PM, 6:00 PM, 8:00 PM and 10:00 PM in Colombo on Sunday. While the weather forecast is not as bad as some of the previous matches, fans are still worried and wondering what will happen if rain plans to play spoilsport in the final.

India vs Sri Lanka, Asia Cup 2023: What if the final is cancelled?

Like the exciting India-Pakistan match, the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) has also kept September 18 (Monday) as the reserve day for the final match of the 2023 Asia Cup. In case weather conditions do not permit the match to be played on Sunday, the match will be resumed from the same point on Monday.

At the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, we witnessed the exemplary work done by the stadium staff. The workers on the ground make sure that every area of ​​the ground is properly covered so that the game can start as soon as possible after the rain stops.

But what if rain washes out the match on reserve day?

Furthermore, in the event that play is not possible on the reserve day, both India and Sri Lanka will be declared joint winners and the two teams will share the trophy. This would not be the first time the Sri Lankan weather has made such a ruling. The 2002 edition of the Champions Trophy was also disrupted by rain, including the finals after which India and Sri Lanka were declared joint winners.
