A high voltage match between India and Pakistan will be held in a few hours as part of the ICC T20 World Cup.

But now the rain has subsided a bit. The journalists there are saying that even if the full overs match is not played, the match can be played with few overs. On the other hand, cold air is blowing in the Pacific Ocean due to typhoon Lana. As a result, it will rain in most parts of Australia according to the weather report. It is said that heavy rains will fall mainly in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. On October 23, 80 percent rain will fall in Melbourne. Sky News meteorologist Rob Sharp said that the match between India and Pakistan is doubtful.

As per schedule.. but..
But according to the current news, the rain has reduced in Melbourne. Only a little rain fell on Saturday. No rain is forecast for Melbourne until Sunday afternoon Australian time. But it is said that there is a chance of rain in the evening. Looking at the current conditions, the match is sure to start at 1:30 PM IST. If rain interrupts the match between India and Pakistan, the match will be stopped completely. If there is a chance to hold the match then they will wait till 4.30 PM Indian time. If the rain stops in the middle, the match can be started with an overcut. After fixing the cutoff time for the match, if the rain stops, the match can be played in 5 overs for both teams. If the match is abandoned, each team will be awarded one point. No reserve day.
This match between India and Pakistan is attracting interest due to many reasons. Till last year, Team India was unbeaten against Pakistan in World Cup tournaments in 50 over and 20 over formats. But this winning streak was broken in the T20 World Cup 2021 match held in Dubai. In that match, Pakistan won against Kohli’s team by ten wickets. So it can be said that this is a good opportunity for India to take revenge.
