Following the recent washout of the India-Pakistan game due to persistent rain, there’s now a looming threat of rain affecting upcoming matches. According to an Indian Express report, there’s a potential change in plans for the Super 4 games of the tournament.
Originally scheduled for Colombo, it’s now being considered to move the Super 4 stage to Dambulla due to continuous heavy rainfall in the country’s capital in recent days.
Typically, Sri Lanka avoids hosting matches beyond the first week of September due to their wet conditions. Consequently, if the Super 4 stages persisted in Colombo, they would be vulnerable to rainfall.
Currently, both Colombo and Pallekele are being affected by rain, prompting the Asia Cricket Council to reconsider the scheduling of the next stage. A final decision is expected within the next 24-48 hours.
Nonetheless, the report suggests that Dambulla, being the driest region in Sri Lanka, is the most likely candidate for relocating the fixtures.
