Pak vs SL: Toss delayed due to drizzle in ColomboSport
A spell of drizzle in the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo has delayed the toss in the crucial Pakistan-Sri Lanka Super Fours match of the Asia Cup 2023.
According to ESPNcricinfo, the toss, which would take place at 2:00pm PST, has been delayed because of a light drizzle and a wet outfield. Footage broadcast on television showed the characteristic blue covers spanning the R. Premadasa Stadium.
Since there is no “reserve day” in the Super Fours in this match a washout today would end Pakistan’s Asia Cup campaign and send Sri Lanka straight into the final.
Weather forecaster AccuWeather predicted unfavourable conditions in Colombo. According to the forecaster, there was a 93 per cent probability of rain with a 56pc chance of thunderstorms affecting the tie during the day with “a couple of showers and a thunderstorm”.
Meanwhile, the PCB has put up a video showing Pakistani cricketers “focused on the method”.
