Chance of a Rain?

2019 World Cup in England is the wettest tournament in the history of the game of cricket. The rain has been a major intruder in the ongoing tournament, with almost 4 games under no results, rain is now looking to spoil the fun on Sunday. According to the sources, there are chances of a light shower in the afternoon which is a serious concern. However, the first half is expected to remain positive and the sun would be expected to smile gloriously.


India and Pakistan have both gone through this frustration and would hope for a play on Sunday. While for India, it will be their fourth game in the tournament, Pakistan will be playing their fifth.

Even ICC is concerned

Manchester ground received heavy showers two days before; the pitch was under the hover cover, while the rest of the square was covered by sheets. This situation kept ICC worrying, as they too didn’t want this game to wash away.

However, things changed after a few hours later when the sun peaked and things started looking much brighter and better. The groundstaff began into action, ensuring no water slips through and alters the pitch. It has rained every day this week in Manchester and yet, the pitch looked bare and dry, which is great work done by the curator and the support staff.


ICC has been under fury by Indian cricket fans for India vs New Zealand washout. ICC chief David Richardson himself made it to the ground for inspection making sure everything is going well. Therefore, the pitch is going to be a batsman paradise as it has a little grass on it helping the batsman to time the shots perfectly.
