India, who are undefeated in the Asia Cup 2023 after four matches, have secured a place in the grand finale of the continental cricket tournament after defeating Sri Lanka, at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, on September 12, Tuesday. They are scheduled to face Bangladesh during the Super Four stage, at the same venue on September 15, Friday, to best prepare themselves for the final on the weekend.

In their last meeting against Bangladesh at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram in 2022, India registered their biggest win against the neighbours, defeating them by 227 runs after scoring more than 400 runs in their batting innings. But, Bangladesh will be quietly confident about upstaging their upcoming opponent, whom they have beaten at home in a three-match bilateral ODI series last December by 2-1.

While the Indian cricket team have managed to beat Pakistan and Sri Lanka to make their way to the Asia Cup 2023 final, Bangladesh lost to the aforementioned teams to bow out of the competition. As the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 is just weeks away, where India and Bangladesh will be playing each other, their upcoming match in the continental cricket tournament could serve as a prelude of sorts.

Talking about the weather for this Asia Cup 2023 match at the R Premadasa Stadium, it is expected to be mostly cloudy with a couple of thunderstorms, according to the listings on AccuWeather. The probability of precipitation stands at 88% and the probability of thunderstorms stands at 53% during the daytime, on September 15, Friday.

But, in good news, the weather could relent as we move into the night in Colombo, which will be helpful in ensuring that this match reaches its logical conclusion for the players and fans alike.
