India vs Pakistan: Could Rain Knock Pakistan Out Of T20 World Cup 2024?

The T20 World Cup 2024 match between India and Pakistan stands as one of the most eagerly awaited encounters for cricket fans in the ongoing tournament. Due to political tensions, the two teams have not played a bilateral series in nearly a decade, restricting their face-offs to international competitions.

Consequently, their matches are highly anticipated, with fans eagerly awaiting the clash since the announcement of the tournament fixtures. However, weather forecasts predict rain could disrupt the game, with over a 50 percent chance of rain and complete cloud cover expected.

The heavy rainfall has already caused a delay in the toss, with the entire field covered at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York. In the tournament’s preceding matches, India triumphed over Ireland by eight wickets, thanks to a resilient half-century from Rohit Sharma.

In contrast, Pakistan faced a surprising defeat against the United States, suffering a batting collapse and a lackluster bowling performance that resulted in a loss during the Super Over. If the India-Pakistan match is washed out, both teams will be awarded one point each.

This outcome would leave Pakistan with one point from two matches, necessitating victories in their remaining games against Canada and Ireland to secure a place in the Super 8, provided the United States loses both of their upcoming matches. On the other hand, India would have three points from two matches and would need to win one of their remaining games against the United States or Canada to confirm their spot in the Super 8 of the T20 World Cup 2024.
