Possibility of first-ever India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2023 Final?

Team India may face arch-nemesis Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2023 Final on Sunday. Only two matches are left in the Asia Cup 2023 Super-4 stage. Just a day before India vs Bangladesh Super 4 match on Friday (15th September), Pakistan and Sri Lanka will square off in a tense “knockout game” on Thursday (September 14). The team that wins this match will join India in the Asia Cup 2023 Final. If Pakistan wins, fans will see India going up against the Men in Green for the third time in the ongoing continental tournament.

What will happen if Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Asia Cup 2023 Super 4s match gets called off due to rain?

If Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Super 4s match on Thursday (September 14) gets called off due to rain, then both the teams will get 1 point each.
