ACC Calls Meeting to Relocate Asia Cup Matches from Colombo

ACC considers relocating Asia Cup 2023 matches after rain in Colombo.

The first matches in Colombo is set for September 9, but the ACC is worried about the gloomy weather predictions for the next few days.

The participating teams have been made aware of the weather in the capital of Sri Lanka. Pallekele and Dambulla are therefore being investigated as potential alternatives for the locations of the remaining matches.

Within the next 24 to 48 hours, the ACC is anticipated to decide on the venue for the event. After making a judgment, the ACC would let the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) know.

The ACC’s sudden decision to switch the site has drawn criticism from the PCB. The accommodations and hotel conditions in Dambulla have caused the Indian cricket team to express their displeasure.

The Asia Cup Super Four matches, including the event’s final, are planned to take place in Colombo during the following 15 days, however thundery storms are predicted to occur there.

The ACC has come under fire for scheduling the Asia Cup during Sri Lanka’s rainy season. The most anticipated game between India and Pakistan was canceled at Pallekele International Stadium in Kandy as a result of the heavy downpour.

Najam Sethi, a former PCB chairman, voiced his regret following the rain-related cancellation of the Pakistan vs. India game.

In order to prevent weather-related delays, Sethi said that he fervently campaigned during his term for the Asia Cup games to be held in the UAE.
