IND vs SL Super 4 Asia Cup 2023 Match 4 Details
Match 4 of the Super 4 stage in the Asia Cup 2023 is scheduled for September 12th at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. The live coverage of the game will commence at 3 PM IST.
Pitch and Weather Conditions
It appears to be a batsman’s paradise, offering a beautiful surface for stroke play. In the early stages, there is some movement for the seamers, providing an exciting challenge for bowlers. As the game progresses, spinners can also make an impact, as we have seen in Kuldeep Yadav’s impressive performance in the last match against Pakistan.
On the other hand, clouds continue to roam over the city, and the likelihood of rain remains high, with approximately a 90% chance of precipitation. However, there is an expectation that it will decrease later. Overall, we would not lose any overs or maybe a few overs could be compromised.
The below table shows how both teams have performed against each other so far.

IND vs SL Super 4 Match 4 Preview
The Super 4 round has begun and if India wins here then it will qualify for the final. India fans are pretty happy with the Indian team’s performance so far. The best performance came against Pakistan in the last match. After defeating Nepal and no result in the group stage match between India and Pakistan due to rain, India comfortably advanced to the Super 4 stage.
The first match of the Super 4 was against Pakistan once again. India dominated with the bat after electing to bat first. Virat Kohli, the run machine has once again proved why he is the king and something against Pakistan that gets the best out of him. KL Rahul’s return to the ODIs with that outstanding hundred was another delightful moment for the fans and the Indian staff. Kuldeep Yadav was brilliant with his 5-fer and will surely get a chance in the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup 2023.
There are some brilliant performances by the Indian players. Rohit Sharma has already struck back-to-back half-centuries. Shubman Gill has struck consecutive fifties also. Therefore, the openers are looking in good touch. Virat Kohli’s unbelievable records on this ground are simply astonishing. Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja have performed in bits and pieces but their contribution cannot be denied.
The bowling has been a masterclass. Jasprit Bumrah has spearheaded the pace attack exceptionally well. Mohammed Siraj also bowled well with his tight line and lengths. The Chinaman Kuldeep Yadav is simply at his best and would love to carry this form in this match too.
Team Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka has performed in bits and pieces so far. The group stages were decent where they beat Bangladesh in the first match. The match against Afghanistan was a thriller and Sri Lanka was lucky to escape and won the match by 2 runs. They somehow reached the Super 4 stage.
Once again they faced Bangladesh here and this time, it was a much better performance from Sri Lanka. They batted well though they faltered at the back end of the innings. The target of 257 was set and they had to defend it. It was their bowlers who sealed the victory for them. Maheesh Theekshana, Matheesha Pathirana and the skipper Dasun Shanka were among the wicket-takers and in the end, Sri Lanka won the match by 21 runs.
Their top order which includes Pathum Nissanka and Dimuth Karunaratne, hasn’t given the start they wanted. This had put pressure on the middle-order batsmen. Charith Asalanka and Sadeera Samarawickrama came to the rescue. Their partnership set the tone for the win. In terms of bowling, due to the unavailability of their star bowlers, they struggled at some points but still managed to hold onto it. Pathirana and Theekshana have been their best bowlers so far and they are still looking for a complete performance.
