The battle between India and Pakistan in the 2023 Asia Cup Super 4s, set for September 10, is keenly anticipated by cricket fans throughout the world. But the impending prospect of rain has raised doubts about this eagerly awaited event.
Forecasts indicate that rain would continue to fall during the remaining Asia Cup games in Colombo, therefore the event’s organizers planned ahead and set aside a Reserve Day for this exciting match.
The Reserve Day, scheduled for September 11, serves as a backup plan in the event that inclement weather causes the principal match day to be canceled. Additionally, a Reserve Day has been scheduled for the Asia Cup final, which is set for September 17.

A Reserve Day ensures that teams will have an equal opportunity to demonstrate their abilities and reassures supporters that they won’t miss out on this cricketing extravaganza.
Both teams are striving for the Asia Cup title, so the match between Pakistan and India should be exciting. The two bitter rivals had previously faced off in Pallekele during the competition’s group stage. Rain forced a halt to play, and Pakistan’s innings was abandoned after bowling out India for 266 runs. Considering that the game was abandoned, both teams received points.
Pakistan is currently at the top of the Super 4s points table after a convincing 7-wicket win against Bangladesh in Lahore. A win for the Men in Green will almost guarantee them a spot in the final of the mega-event. You can check out all the ticketing details here.
