IND vs BAN: Asia Cup 2023 is now heading to the last match of the Super 4s and it is scheduled to be played between 1st finalist INDIA and 1st Eliminated BANGLADESH today at R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo starting at 03:00 PM. The weather in Lanka’s Colombo city hasn’t been eye-pleasing for the past couple of days for cricket fans and here, in this post, we discuss the IND vs BAN Weather Forecast And Pitch Report Of R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo.

India have already qualified for the final of the Asia Cup 2023 and has no more value but just a formality for Team India’s POV. Although winning here or losing here won’t affect the health of Men in Blue, they would definitely want to keep to momentum and confidence of their side. This will be their first encounter against Bangladesh this season and India will look for an easy win.

Both teams can use this match as an opportunity to give their bench players some playing time. India has already announced its 15-man team, but given the hectic nature of the modern cricket schedule, they would want to make sure the backups get some downtime in the middle.

However, Bangladesh’s campaign has been a case of being “so close yet so far.” They enjoyed one comfortable victory over Afghanistan but fell short in the other three games when it mattered most. Bangladesh had the chance to win both of their games against Sri Lanka, particularly the Super 4s encounter, but their batting fell short. Similar events occurred against Pakistan when Shakib Al Hasan’s team failed to capitalize on a favorable batting surface and was bowled out.

Down below is the IND vs BAN weather forecast and pitch report of R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo:

IND vs BAN Weather Forecast Of R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo (

As suggests, it is an overcast and windy day with a partially clear sky in Colombo city of Sri Lanka. Surprisingly, there is almost no rain forecasted for the day. The weather forecast shows it is a better day than a couple of previous days. The temperature of Lanka’s Colombo city will stay at 29°C for the most part of the day till the evening and drop further a degree or two (27°C) at night.

There are minimal chances of rain throughout the day. Around a 9% chance of rain at the start of the play and it goes up to around 14% at 9:00 PM at night going forward. Humidity is in a higher range, hovering around 80%+. Winds will gust toward the southwest at the speed of ~20kmph during the day and 13kmph during the night.

IND vs BAN Pitch Report Of R. Premadasa Stadium

To be very honest, the pitches in the Premadasa Stadium have a whole lot of varieties. India vs Pakistan saw one of the best batting surfaces, India vs Sri Lanka saw a rank turner and Sri Lanka vs Pakistan was again a good batting surface. So taking past 4 to 5 matches into consideration, the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo is greatly benefiting spinners.

The average score at this stadium is roughly 250 to 260 but once you are set on the crease, this 260 can be easily turned to 280. There are no such demons on the pitch but still, the batters will attempt to be patient in the first innings.

India played a match a day before and most probably they are going to make some changes in their playing 11 but India’s bench has similar strength as their playing 11s had on a day before.
