Rain has already played a spoilsport in the ongoing Asia Cup. The league stage match between India and Pakistan was washed out due to heavy rain. Again the match between the arch-rivals in the Super Four stage was interrupted by rain. However, it was decided on the reserve day.

Now, with India having secured a spot in the summit clash with a convincing win over Sri Lanka on Tuesday at R Premadasa stadium in Colombo, eyes will be on the Pakistan versus Sri Lanka match to see who sets up a date for September 17 with the Men in Blue.

In case the Super Four game between Pakistan and Sri Lanka is washed out, the team which has the better net run rate will join India in the final match.

As per the prediction, the Asia Cup final could be a washout as there are forecasts of thunderstorms. There is 70 per cent chance of rain and that is not good news for fans.

However, there is a reserve day for the final match. So in case the match does not yield a result on Sunday due to rain, it should eventually decide a winner on Monday.
