Pakistan-England T20 World Cup final under a cloud after rain forecast!

  • Rain predictions on Sunday and Monday in Melbourne
  • Australia MET forecasts a 95% rain probability on Sunday during the T20 final between Pakistan & England.

Heavy rain is expected in Melbourne on Sunday’s match day and also the reserve day on Monday as a multi-year La Nina weather phenomenon continues to drench much of eastern Australia.

If the match starts on Sunday and is unable to be completed, it will resume at 3 pm (0400 GMT) on Monday.

In case, if Sunday is completely washed out, the match will start at 3 pm on Monday.

If Monday is also washed out, then in the worst-case scenario, the World Cup will have joint winners for the first time.

The Australian port city of Melbourne is known for having “four seasons in one day”, particularly in spring, and forecasts are often wide of the mark.

Pakistan played their first T20 WC game against India in their Super 12 blockbuster at the MCG despite a dire outlook for rain.

Rain was expected on Friday as well, but Pakistan trained under leaden skies at the MCG without ever running for cover.
