EDGBASTON – This news regarding the Pakistan, India match tomorrow (Sunday), is probably the last thing that one would want to hear ahead of the most anticipated clash of the season is it being stopped due to rain.
In a major scare for fans across the globe waiting for the highly anticipated ICC Champions Trophy 2017 clash between India and Pakistan in Birmingham, may end up disrupting the tie on Sunday.
However, the weather in the West Midlands city can play a spoilsport on the hopes of the millions of fans worldwide. The Indian team was on Friday forced to conduct an indoor net session due to an afternoon thundershower.
The Indian team arrived at the training facility in Edgbaston to the shower of rain, forcing the players to play indoor. The situation is expected to remain unchanged on Saturday with a thunderstorm forecast on that day.
On Sunday, there might be a slight improvement but the threat of rain can’t be completely ruled out. Some passing showers are expected throughout the day, which might play a dampener on the match.
Earlier on Friday, the match between Australia and New Zealand, which was also being played at the same venue, was stopped midway due to showers of rain. The match later resumed but was reduced to 46-overs per side.
