In case the rain gods decide the disrupt the India vs. Nepal match and the points get divided between India and Nepal, the Nepalese fans will be disappointed as the team lost its first match against Pakistan and has 0 points. If the India vs. Nepal match is called off, then India will have 2 points in total and Nepal will have only 1 point which means they will be knocked out of Asia Cup 2023.
