Colombo’s Asia Cup matches likely to be shifted to Hambantota

On September 5th in Colombo.
The Super Four games and the Asia Cup’s final may move from Colombo to a district called Hambantota in southern Sri Lanka, according to sources from Sri Lanka Cricket.
The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) will make an announcement later today.
The decision was made because of a lot of rain in the capital city and in the central town of Kandy.
India’s two games have been impacted by rain.
The highly anticipated India-Pakistan match at the Pallekele stadium in Kandy was cancelled after one innings because of heavy rain on Saturday. Additionally, India’s match against Nepal on Monday was also shortened because of rain.
Broadcast operators and local communication service providers have been told to move their equipment from Hambantota, a place that has been facing a drought lately.
So, instead of being held in Colombo, all five Super Four games and the final will probably happen in Hambantota.
Hambantota’s Rajapaksa Stadium was not initially planned to be included in the Asia Cup. The most recent One Day International (ODI) happened in August when Afghanistan had a match against Pakistan. This was the second game out of three in the series.
The first match got canceled, so people are suggesting to have an extra day for the next game between India and Pakistan on Sunday. Can you please provide the text that you would like me to simplify.
