Pak vs Eng Final: Rain likely to win

Pak vs Eng: Rain threatens to ruin final

The ICC t20 World Cup 2022 final showdown is all set to witness Pakistan and England locking horns with each other, just like the ODI World Cup 1992 final. Although history is on the verge of repeating itself, if Babar Azam and co manage to conquer the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), rain is likely to destroy the party.

The weather forecast shows a hundred per cent chance of rain alongside heavy thunderstorms, which probably will affect the match. According to ICC’s new rules for the final, a minimum of 10-over games per side must be played to conclude the results. However, with high chances of cloud burst at the location, the trophy might be seen shared between the two.

Although the council has booked a reserved day at MCG to dig out the final results but again, the reserved day is once again likely to be washed away with the weather not falling in Pak vs Eng’s favour. According to Geo Super,

“If forced to reschedule, the match would start at 3 p.m. (0400 GMT) on Monday, with players and officials on notice to be prepared to play well into the evening if the weather forces it.”

Notably, England defeated India in the second semifinal of the T20 World Cup 2022 at Adelaide on Thursday, whereas Pakistan defeated New Zealand in the first semifinal, which took place at Sydney Cricket Ground on Wednesday. Both the losing teams flew back home while Jos Buttler’s and Babar Azam’s men got their tickets to the final.
