Heavy rains lashed Colombo at around 7 am on Monday which could jeopardize play between two Asian rivals, reported ANI. Moreover, the patch marks on the outfield at the R Premadas Stadium could have worsened owing to the continued rain.

What happens if India vs Pakistan match is washed off?

If today's match is also washed off, then India and Pakistan will take one point each. With this, Pakistan will move to the top of the Super Four standings with three points, having won against Bangladesh. Sri Lanka has already registered a win against Bangladesh too, worth two points, almost knocking them out of the competition. In this case, India's next two matches against Sri Lanka (September 12) and Bangladesh (September 15) will be must-win matches for India and reach a total of five points.
