The ICC T20 World Cup is finally at its end stage and all the fans are eagerly awaiting the game between Pakistan and England.

While it is going to be a cracker of a contest at the MCG, the weather department of Australia has issued a report of heavy rains tomorrow.

This T20 World Cup has been fraught with bad weather throughout with many games being called off and teams sharing points.

Both Pakistan and England played really well in their respective semifinals to clinch a place in the finals.

And because of the bad weather, the organizers have to put up with a lot of criticism from all sides.

On Sunday, the Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology, there is a 100% chance of rain on Sunday along with a massive thunderstorm.

In the statement,

Cloudy. Very high (near 100%) chance of showers. The chance of a thunderstorm, possibly severe. Winds east to northeasterly 15 to 20 km/h turning northerly 25 to 35 km/h during the morning then decreasing to 15 to 20 km/h in the evening.

If the game does not take place on Sunday, then a reserve day has been selected which is Monday.

But, the weather in Melbourne pretty much will remain the same on Monday as well. According to the statement of the weather department,

Cloudy. Very high (95%) chance of showers, most likely in the morning and afternoon. The chance of a thunderstorm. Winds northwesterley 15 to 25 km/h turning westerley 25 to 40 km/h during the morning then decreasing to 15 to 25 km/h during the afternoon.

So, there is a high possibility that the game may be called off if it doesn’t happen in two days.

This also means that England and Pakistan will share the trophy.
