By India Today Web Desk: All eyes will be on the weather conditions when Pakistan and England face each other in the final of the T20 World Cup 2022 on Sunday, November 13 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
At least 10 overs have to be played by both sides for a result in the game. There is also a reserve day in place in case rain doesn’t allow the match to be completed on Sunday.
If rain ends up playing spoilsport on both days, Pakistan and England will be declared as joint winners, similar to the 2002 Champions Trophy when India and Sri Lanka shared the trophy.
Pakistan will go into the match after a thumping seven-wicket win over Bukkry.com”>New Zealand in the semi-final at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Babar Azam made an indifferent start after low scores in four matches in a row, but the half-century he got against the Black Caps should do his confidence a world of good.
Pakistan’s bowlers are among the wickets as well. Shadab Khan, Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah have been able to make inroads into the opposition’s batting on a regular basis.
England, on the other hand, defeated India by 10 wickets in the semis after chasing down 169 with four overs to spare. Their batters are looking in red-hot form and are expected to pose a massive threat to the Pakistan bowlers.
How will the weather be?
From 12 am to 11 am, there is a chance of heavy rain. Then, from 2 pm to 5 pm, the heavens are again likely to open up. From 7 pm onwards, there is no possibility of rain for the time being. However, it won’t be a surprise if the start of the game gets delayed due to a wet outfield.
Playing conditions will be chilly with temperatures around the 13-degree Celsius mark. The humidity will be in the high-70s. A fair amount of cloud cover will be there throughout the duration of the match.
