This year the winning team of the Asia Cup 2023 is expected to take home $150,000 and the runner-up team is set to get $100,000. The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) and Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) have declared a cash prize of US$50,000 for the curators and ground staff in Colombo.

This dire forecast has prompted the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) to be prepared with a reserve day on Monday, September 18th, in case the weather decides to play spoilsport on the much-anticipated final day.

Colombo has witnessed rain causing disruptions throughout the tournament, with only one game in the ongoing Asia Cup 2023 being played without any interruption.

The Super Four clash between India and Bangladesh was the exception, but the grand final is expected to face a more formidable challenge from Mother Nature.

The weather reports suggest a high likelihood of showers during the toss, which could potentially delay the start of the action. Thunderstorms are also lurking in the forecast for Sunday in Colombo, further increasing concerns. 

Despite this continuous rain threat, the tournament has reached its climax, thanks in no small part to the hard work of the grounds staff who have diligently ensured games continue whenever the weather permits.

The weather forecast for the final day indicates temperatures ranging from 25°C to 29°C, with humidity levels hovering around 90% throughout the day. The combination of these factors suggests that spinners may once again have a field day, as they have throughout the tournament.

However, the good news is that a reserve day is in place for the final on Monday, September 18th. If rain disrupts Sunday’s proceedings, efforts will be made to have a shortened game of at least 20 overs per side. But if the weather gods remain uncooperative, the match will be moved to the reserve day to conclude proceedings.

However, even the reserve day is not without its concerns, as AccuWeather predicts a 69 percent chance of precipitation on that day as well.

If both days are marred by rain, history could be made in an unexpected way. For the first time in Asia Cup history, the trophy could be shared between two teams, a scenario that occurred in the Champions Trophy 2002 when these two teams were forced to share the title due to a washed-out final.
