India vs Nepal weather update: The much-hyped India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2023 match was called off due to rains even before a single ball could be bowled in the second innings and there’s more disappointing news for team India fans. The Men in Blue are scheduled to square off against debutant Nepal on September 4 (Monday) at the same venue – Sri Lanka’s Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Kandy. As per weather report, the venue is expected to remain under the clouds throughout the day with an 80% chance of rain.
In what comes as a very bad news for fans who already witnessed a washed-out game, there is an 80% chance of rain in Sri Lanka’s Kandy during India vs Nepal Asia Cup 2023 match hours.
In case India vs Nepal Asia Cup 2023 match gets disrupted by rain gods, the points get divided and both teams will be awarded a point each.
Will India qualify for Super-4 if India vs Nepal Asia Cup 2023 match gets washed out due to rain?
Points get divided between India and Nepal if their Asia Cup 2023 match today gets washed out due to rain. Nepal, at present, have zero points as they faced a humiliating loss against Pakistan in their inaugural Asia Cup 2023 match in Multan on August 30. If IND vs NEP Asia Cup 2023 match is called off, then Nepal, with just one point, will be knocked out of Asia Cup 2023 and India will have 2 points in total.
For team India, it will be a free ticket to Asia Cup 2023 Super 4, without playing a complete single match in the league stage, for Nepal, making their debut in the continental tournament, will at least have one game remaining to showcase their talent.
Some fans and cricket pundits even criticised chairman Jay Shah-led Asian Cricket Council (ACC) for chosing Sri Lanka as the alternate venue.
