Hubballi: The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) is considering relocating the Super Four matches of the Asia Cup due to heavy rains in Colombo.
Originally scheduled to commence on September 9, the ACC, along with Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), is exploring alternative venues.
Hambantota, Pallekele, and Dambulla are being considered as options. The participating teams have been notified of this potential change.
Pallekele, the current host of Asia Cup league matches, is susceptible to rain, and Dambulla, while offering more favorable weather, may face logistical challenges with short notice. The readiness of the Rangiri International Cricket Stadium in Dambulla is a concern, as noted by an SLC official.
Hambantota, with the best weather forecast in Sri Lanka, is being evaluated as a possible host at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium.
The ACC has a limited window to make a final decision, as the Colombo leg is slated to begin on September 9.
