The highly anticipated T20 World Cup match between Pakistan and India on Sunday (Oct. 23) in Melbourne might be ruined by inclement weather in Australia as the day’s predictions indicate a high likelihood of downpours.
Rain is likely to interrupt Pakistan-India Match
There are 95% odds of rain in Melbourne on October 23, most likely in the afternoon and evening, according to Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology. The game will begin at 7 p.m. (Australia time) and 1 p.m. (PST).
The game between Australia and New Zealand on Saturday is also in danger of being postponed or disrupted by rain, along with the Pakistan-India match.
The India-New Zealand warm-up game in Brisbane earlier on Wednesday was called off owing to nonstop rain, while the Pakistan-Afghanistan clash was also called off after the Green Shirts finished their innings.
According to ESPNcricinfo, a clash must consist of a minimum of five overs. There are no reserve days throughout the group stages, but there are for the semifinals and championship game.
