After a long wait, India and Pakistan will finally face each other in a 50-over match in the third game of the 2023 Asia Cup in Pallekele. However, there is a high chance of rain on Saturday, September 2, which could disrupt the match.
The Weather – India vs. Pakistan
According to the Weather Report from Sri Lanka, there is a 34% chance of rain at 2:00 PM, which will increase to 39% and then to 49% in the next two hours. The rain threat will increase to 64% by 6:00 PM and will not go below 50% until 8:00 PM. The rain threat will go beyond 60% again for the next three hours.
This means that there is a very high chance of rain throughout the day, and it is unlikely that the match will be able to be played in full. If the rain does come, it is possible that the match will be reduced to a 20-over game, or even abandoned altogether.
The rain threat is also looming over the ongoing Bangladesh-Sri Lanka match, but the rain threat is less than 50% and there has been no interruption thus far.
Fans are hoping that the weather will cooperate and that they will be able to see a full match between India and Pakistan. However, the rain threat is a major concern, and it is possible that the match will not be able to be played.
Here are some additional details about the weather forecast:
- The temperature in Pallekele is expected to be around 27 degrees Celsius.
- The humidity is expected to be around 75%.
- The wind speed is expected to be around 10 kilometers per hour.
- The organizers of the Asia Cup are monitoring the weather situation closely, and they will make a decision about the match on Saturday morning. However, it is looking increasingly likely that the match will be affected by rain.
