The Asia Cup games will be shifted from Colombo to Hambantota


The Asia Cup will be held in Hambantota, a town on the coast in southern Sri Lanka. Due to the island nation’s weather conditions, both Super 4 games and the final, which were originally slated for Colombo, will now be held in Hambantota.

This adjustment has been communicated to all participating teams, and the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) is anticipated to announce a formal declaration soon. Teams from Pakistan who have finished their last league games will go to Hambantota. The Indian team will now move to Pallekele.

However, this decision is undertaken while keeping in mind the players fitness and protecting them from any sickness issues. The unstoppable raindrops in Colombo have spoiled the players performances and also taken their winning chances. It could be more affecting for players to play in the roasting and forceful heat just three weeks before; it would be harmful for the cricketers to play under such circumstances.

Right now, the Group A participants, India and Pakistan, are the first to perform in the Super 4. Sri Lanka and Bangladesh are still in the race to compete in the above-mentioned tournament. However, Nepal and Afghanistan are the two lowest-ranked teams that have not chased a single victory in the Asia Cup match.
