Could Rain Douse Hopes for India-Pakistan Clash in T20 World Cup?


As fans around the gear up for the blockbuster T20 match between rivals India and Pakistan, forecasts indicate potential rain showers may disrupt the proceedings. The teams are set to face off at the Nassau County Cricket Stadium in New York on June 9 as part of the ongoing ICC Men's campaign.

AccuWeather predictions for the area show overcast skies and a 09% chance of rain early Sunday morning local time. Precipitation chances rise to 40% between 1100-1200 hours, with potential thunderstorms developing through the afternoon. This has fans wondering how many overs, if any, spectators may get to see between the arch-foes.

A washout would provide Pakistan some relief, after falling to USA in their tournament opener. Both sides would earn a point each from an abandoned match. In the event of a cancellation, ongoing results and position on the points table will impact future match requirements for the four teams in Group A.

Local organizers had prepared extensively to host the highly-anticipated matchup. However, changing pitch conditions due to weather could see lower scoring than hoped for. Precautionary groundstaff efforts may only slow the surface, with 150 still a challenging total. Fans will have to wait until match day to see if the weather cooperates for this eagerly anticipated clash.
