Who would have thought that two weeks into the ODI cricket’s biggest carnival and weather will be on everyone’s mind. While there have been a host of several eye-catching performances since the tournament kicked-off on May 30, rain gods have been unkind towards ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. What else explains that out of 18 matches, four had to be called off due to rain.

India and New Zealand, the only two unbeaten teams of the tournament, were to face in Nottingham in what was expected to be a close contest. But the match was a complete washout as persistent rain continued to lash Trent Bridge, keeping the pitch under the covers. The players, fans and match officials kept their fingers crossed for almost five hours before giving up. The two teams have shared a point each.

The focus now is on another high-voltage clash – India vs Pakistan. It’s a stories rivalry between the two neighbours who nowadays only square off in either ICC or continental events owing to non-cricketing reasons. The contest will be played on June 16 (Sunday) and has been a sellout.

But, yup the dreaded but. The forecast for Sunday in Manchester is, as of now, of light showers. So, at the moment it doesn’t look like it will be a complete washout but rain might play some part in it.
