Rain threat looms over India-Pakistan

The most awaited encounter of the ongoing World Cup 2019 is just a couple of days away and fans are keeping their fingers crossed in hopes of seeing a 100-over game with no rain interruptions.

India are set to take on archrivals Pakistan at Manchester on Sunday.

The World Cup has witnessed five games being washed out due to unrelenting rain and both India and Pakistan have had their last games abandoned due to inclement weather.

However, fans, and the teams, will be hoping for bright sunshine when they take the field for what is expected to be a cracker of a contest between the two Asian giants.

However, whether there is rain or not, the weather forecast has already put a damper on their hopes. The local weather department predicts that rain will arrive in Manchester on Friday and continue intermittently till Monday.

If less than 15 overs are played, then fans can get a full refund and if 15.1-30 overs are played, they are entitled to 50 per cent refunds. However, there is no such provision for sponsors and broadcasters.
