India vs Pakistan, Manchester Match Weather Forecast Report

India vs Pakistan, Manchester Weather Forecast Report: The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is underway in the United Kingdom but the limelight has been stolen by the British rains. With the most anticipated clash between arch-rivals India and Pakistan set to take place at Old Trafford Cricket ground in Manchester on Sunday, cricket fans and experts across the world have their fingers crossed.

The rain stopped in the late afternoon in Manchester, only to come back in bursts through the day. The outfield is a bigger cause of concern. Soggy patches have developed in certain areas. The nature of the outfield was why India’s match against New Zealand had to be called off earlier this week. The drainage system at the Old Trafford ground will be put to the test even if the rains completely stop.

The rain had stopped for a few hours but a drizzle came back again late in the evening on Saturday.

There is a worrying forecast for tomorrow as well. According to the Met department, there is more than 50% chance of rain around noon and between 5 pm and 7 pm (BST) on Sunday

Also, the problem of covers not protecting the outfield, the issue which led to the abandonment of India’s last match, against New Zealand, is also present in Manchester.

So far four out of the 19 matches contested at the World Cup have been called off or abandoned in the rain-hit tournament and the Sri Lankans are the only team to have suffered this misfortune twice.

It had been raining till India’s last match in Nottingham against New Zealand which also resulted in washout but Manchester on Friday lifted the gloom that has draped the India vs Pakistan game.

According to Accuweather prediction, it will be overcast throughout Sunday, with rainfall expected as the day progresses. Accuweather also predicts a light shower between 12 PM local time and 1 PM local time in Manchester on Sunday.

‘Rain, rain go away, India wants to play. Rain, rain go away, let India win the game.’ From cricket stands at Trent Bridge, to social media platforms Cricket fans from all across the globe are praying for a sunny day in England for cricket to start
