India vs Sri Lanka, Asia Cup Final: Rain Threat Looms, Hourly Weather Update Of Colombo



India take on Sri Lanka in Sunday’s Asia Cup final, a crucial momentum-builder heading into next month’s ODI World Cup. Both teams have 13 Asian titles between them, with India winning on seven occasions. India kicked off their campaign with a washed-out match in Pallekele against Pakistan, before beating Nepal to qualify for the Super 4 stage. India then defeated both Pakistan and Sri Lanka, before being stunned by Bangladesh on Friday, in the absence of rested stars like Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, among others.

Sri Lanka, who won the previous edition of the Asia Cup played in the T20 format, came in as underdogs defeated Pakistan in a do-or-die match on Thursday to set up a final date with India.

However, the focus will be on Colombo’s weather on Sunday. Several matches have been interrupted due to rain already, with one washout as well.
