Tickets for the match between the two nations will be sold like hotcakes. Fans will glue to the TV screens during the match. But there is a villain to the match and he can also be a threat to the match. He is the rain god.
It is known that ahead of the World Cup, India, Pakistan, and other Asian teams are playing the Asia Cup. Pakistan and Sri Lanka are hoisting the matches. As India cited security concerns to travel to Pakistan, Sri Lanka is hosting a few matches.
Many say that the decision is not right as Sri Lanka has been seeing heavy rains right now. Last week, India Pakistan match was canceled due to rain after India's innings. Three matches played in Pallekele stadium faced rain threat. Now Colombo was made the venue. The final which is slated on September 17 will be played there.
But there are a few concerns about the possibility of games. Colombo has been seeing big rain for two weeks. There is a rain threat for India, Pakistan Super 4 match on Sunday. As there is a 75 percent chance of rain threat for the match, Sri Lanka Cricket proposed to change the venue to Hambantota. But the Asia Cricket Council(ACC) denied it.
ACC took a key decision on the India-Pakistan match. Reserve day for the Super-4 match was announced. If Sunday match is spoiled by the rain, Monday is announced as the reserve day. The match will resume on the reserve day where it was stopped on the previous day. The match tickets will be applicable for the reserve day too. India-Pak is the only Super 4 match with reserve day,
This is the power of the India-Pakistan match. The top two teams in Super 4 will play in the finals. India has to play with Sri Lanka and Bangladesh and defeating them would not be an issue. It would be not a wonder if India-Pak reaches the final. If this happens, it becomes the rare incident of arch-rivals locking horns three times.
