Remaining schedule of Asia Cup 2023:
Sri Lanka vs Pakistan at Colombo(RPS), 14th Sep
India vs Bangladesh at Colombo(RPS), 15th Sep
India vs Bangladesh game becomes irrelevant in this context as team India have already sealed their spot in the finals of Asia Cup 2023. Pakistan can reach a maximum of four points in the table after a win against Sri Lanka.
If Pakistan lose to Sri Lanka, then they end up at two points only while Sri Lanka reaches four points.

Hence, the only option to witness India-Pakistan final in Asia Cup 2023 is only if Pakistan managing to beat Sri Lanka on 14th September so that these two teams play final of the tournament on 17th September at the same venue Colombo(RPS).
