Cricket News: Colombo weather forecast for IND vs PAK Super 4 match | Colombo weather forecast for IND vs PAK Asia Cup

The Asian Cricket Council’s (ACC) decision to keep the business end of the Asia Cup will surely come under the scanner. Colombo, which has copped significant rainfall over the past week, is set to receive more in the coming days, putting the IndiaPakistan Super Four clash under threat.

In an attempt to overcome Sunday’s rain threat, the ACC locked in a reserve day on Monday, September 11. However, the forecast doesn’t look too promising then either.

AccuWeather predicts a significent deluge during the day on Sunday. Up to 20.1 mm is forecast, with a 90% chance of precipitation. The evening also looks bleak, with up to 6.6 mm forecast and a 80% chance of precipitation.

However, the hourly forecast shows less than a 50% chance of precipitation each hour from 9am to 3pm. But, thunderstorms are expected to kick in from 3pm onwards.

Google also forecasts significant rainfall. The platform shows precipitation levels of around 80% right throughout Sunday.

What about the reserve day?

It’s a similar story on Monday. Afternoon thunderstorms are forecast once again, with AccuWeather predicting a 99% chance of precipitation – and up to 29.1 mm of rain – during the day.

Google also paints a bleak picture, with the probability of rain exceeding 90% during most hours of the day.

Should rain have the final say, it will be the second no-result between India and Pakistan in this Asia Cup. The criticism towards the ACC – specifically Jay Shah – will surely grow louder.

Back on September 2 in Pallekele, Pakistan did not get the chance to chase down India’s 267 as rain washed out the second innings.

Shaheen Shah Afridi was the star that day with 4/35. Here’s hoping the Colombo weather is kind enough to allow fans to witness the next installment of Shaheen (and Pakistan) against India.
