The tournament has been pushed back by two days as a result. The final was originally scheduled to be played on Sunday but now has been rescheduled for Tuesday after a meeting of the Technical Committee.
The two games that were scheduled on Friday will now take place on Saturday with two more games taking place on Sunday and then the two top teams progressing to the final.
Thurstan College grounds in Colombo were one of the venues that were supposed to host games but now those games have been taken to Navy Grounds in Welisara. The excellent drainage system in Welisara was the reason for this venue to be preferred over Thurstan Grounds, organizers said.
