Manchester Weather Update:
Showery spells are expected all the way through the United Kingdom on Sunday.

Arch-rivals India and Pakistan cross face to face in a World Cup blockbuster clash at Old Trafford in Manchester on Sunday.

But the forecast is that light showers are on the playing cards on Sunday afternoon, thus affecting the marquee clash between the arch-rivals. Considering the unpredictability of the English weather, the rest is conceivable.

Dark clouds hovered over Old Trafford for many of Saturday, a grim reminder that weather will have the final giggle. As it is, met forecasters are expecting rain on Sunday, with a better chance of it in the second one half of the day. Clearly, the teams must stay it of their plans for the sport as a curtailed game and the Duckworth-Lewis equation are very a lot on the playing cards.

Pakistan have the better of the entire head-to-head report between the 2 nations, successful 73 of the 131 one-day internationals contested between the edges, to India's 54, however on the World Cup it is a other tale.

India have come out on top in all six conferences on the international showpiece, starting with a 43-run triumph back in 1992 and most lately securing a 76-run victory in 2015.

With KL Rahul expected to open the batting for India in the absence of the injured Shikhar Dhawan, extra power could fall on the shoulders of Virat Kohli at three.

But the Indian skipper turns out impervious and has carried the workforce on his back a number of times right through his 11-year world occupation.

Kohli, ranked the number-one batsman in ODIs, demonstrated his shape with a classy knock of 82 in opposition to Australia and has a healthy moderate of 45.90, with two heaps and a half-century, in his 12 ODIs in opposition to Pakistan.

As the number 1 bowler in the ODI scores, Jasprit Bumrah provides India with a persistently potent weapon.

But he's going to have something to turn out on Sunday, having taken simply four wickets in four suits in opposition to Pakistan.

An moderate of 35.75 in opposition to Pakistan is not in the similar league as his stellar mark of 21.98 right through his ODI occupation as a complete.

But the 25-year-old has already demonstrated his high quality right through this World Cup, with 5 wickets thus far.
