Asia Cup Relocated From Colombo Due to Bad Weather
In a significant development for cricket fans, all remaining Asia Cup 2023 matches originally planned to be hosted in Colombo, Sri Lanka, have been relocated to Hambantota due to ongoing heavy rains. This decision has been confirmed by multiple sources and is a collaborative effort between the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) and the tournament hosts.
The primary goal of this move is to ensure the uninterrupted continuation of the Super Four stage matches. It demonstrates the organizers’ dedication to providing a fair and rain-free playing environment for the participating teams.
It’s worth noting that representatives from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) are also in Hambantota and will work closely with ACC officials to assess and oversee the arrangements at the new venue.
Cricket enthusiasts are especially excited about the second match between arch-rivals Pakistan and India, scheduled for September 10th. To account for potential rain disruptions, a reserve day has been scheduled to ensure the smooth progression of this high-stakes encounter.
The Super 4s stage is set to kick off on September 6th at Gaddafi Stadium, where Pakistan will compete against teams from the other group.
