IND vs PAK: Day 1 of India vs Pakistan was washed out due to rain; thankfully, this time we have a reserve day (today). But the sad part of the story is that the weather forecast for September 11(today) is worse than that of yesterday as there are even higher chances of rain. This post will walk you through the IND vs PAK Weather Forecast (Reserve Day) And Pitch Report Of R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo.

On the scheduled date of the IND vs PAK Asia Cup 2023 Super 4s match, only 24.1 overs of the match were feasible before rain suspended play. Even though the groundskeepers were fast to cover the center square and the area close to the playing 22 yards, it was raining so hard that it only took a few seconds for the water to start to pile up on the field.

Rain stopped in an hour but the amount of water it poured down was a real challenge to clean up. A mid-wicket square was wet and it took almost 2 hours to get clean up but the umpires were still not satisfied and they decided to call off day 1 of IND vs PAK.

Before all that, Pakistan won the toss and invited India to bat first and Babar mentioned that there was moisture in the pitch and they would like to utilize it up front. Indian top order was very cautious this time and cautiously took Pakistani bowling arsenal into storm. Rohit and Gill, both batted in beast mode and played over the strike rate of 110.

Pakistan’s prime fast bowler Shaheen Shah gathered 31 runs in his first 3 overs. Shadab Khan broke the 121-run opening stand dismissing Rohit at 56(49). Soon, in his second spell, he got rid of Shubman Gill at 58(52). Pakistan made a comeback and now they were in attacking mode but Virat and Rahul showed solid defense and didn’t lose a wicket. India are 147-2 at 24.1 overs and the play will resume right from here today.

 But the weather today too does not look promising. Down below is the IND vs PAK Weather Forecast (Reserve Day) And Pitch Report Of R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo:

According to, again, it is a rainy day in Colombo city of Sri Lanka. Thunderstorms are predicted throughout the day with a high percentage of rain possibilities. Nothing better than yesterday but even worse. The temperature of Lanka’s Colombo city will stay at 27°C till the evening and drop further a degree or two (26°C) at night.

Chances of rain are on the higher side. Around an 80% chance of rain at the start of the play and it only goes up going forward. Humidity is also in a higher range of around 85%+. Winds will gust toward the southwest at the speed of ~20kmph during the day and 15kmph during the night.

There is a very high possibility that it is going to rain cats and dogs at the Colombo today as well on the reserve day for this match. Nevertheless, we hope for a full 50-50 overs action to take place and we get a result of the match.

As of 10:00 AM, the sun is out there in Colombo.

IND vs PAK Pitch Report Of R. Premadasa Stadium

The R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo is widely known for greatly benefiting spinners but so far in this match, the Pakistani spinners didn’t get much off the surface. The average score at this stadium is roughly 250 and India are already near 150 at the half mark, so today, the batters will attempt to be patient in the first innings.

In Colombo, there is an 80% chance of rain, but even so, the surface often begins slowly before flattening out and benefiting batters. India are batting first and the pitch has shown a glimpse of a late swing. Bumrah would have got very excited to get the ball in his hands.
