All Super 4 matches, along with the finals of the Asia Cup 2023, are set to be shifted from Colombo to Hambantota.

The matches of the Super 4 stage of the Asia Cup 2023 are now going to be held in the coastal town of Hambantota as opposed to the original venue of Colombo. The development has emerged because of the prevailing weather conditions. The Asian Cricket Council is expected to make an official announcement soon regarding the same.
According to reports, all the participating teams have been made aware of this change, and the teams that have completed their league games in Pakistan are ready to travel to Hambantota. Rohit Sharma-led Team India played their final league match against Nepal on September 4th in Pallekele and will move there to Hambantota.
Reports have also suggested that the United Arab Emirates was also being considered as a venue, but because of the intense heat in the country, which could pose health risks for the players, it has been scrapped. As far as Hambantota goes, reports say that the chances of rain reported are only 20 percent, while the probability of showers is over 50 percent in the next 10 days in Colombo.
