With the Old Trafford ground taking a lot of water due to the rain in the lead up to Sunday, the wet patches are going to be a cause for concern if the wet weather persists.

India are looking to take another solid step towards a Cricket World Cup semi-final place when they take on Pakistan in London. Pakistan vs Pakistan World Cup 2019, Kennington Oval London Weather Forecast and Pitch Report Today: Pakistan are desperate to get their rain-marred campaign back on track as they take on holders India on Sunday.
Notably, India’s World Cup 2019 match against New Zealand on Thursday was abandoned without a ball being bowled in Nottingham. There was constant drizzle throughout the duration of the match and on-field umpires had echoed their concerns over the wet patches at Trent Bridge which wasn’t covered entirely as well.
Unacceptable. This is a big tournament. You know the conditions in England and not to have that (extra covers) is absolutely unacceptable in my view. In a country like the West Indies, or in some parts of India where it hardly rains, you can understand grounds not being fully covered. However, Kolkata has got it done. Sri Lanka has it, has covers all over the ground.
Harbhajan Singh, who joined Sunil Gavaskar on the show, said he wasn’t fully satisfied with the Old Trafford’s drainage and the mud-based outfield at the iconic venue.
Pakistan and India is no exception. Pakistan are renowned for their ability to breed mesmerizing quicks, while India has long boasted masterful batsmen. Things have turned slightly with India now boasting arguably the best attack in the world, led by star quick Jasprit Bumrah, and are the hot favorites to continue their dominance over Pakistan at World Cups.
But Pakistan can’t be discounted. After all, they utterly shocked India in one of the great upsets in the final of the Champions Trophy just two years ago and their infamous erratic play has already bubbled over at the World Cup.
After a disastrous opening defeat against the West Indies, Pakistan brilliantly rebounded against hosts and tournament favorites England to further underline their credentials as cricket’s ultimate wildcard.
Pakistan lost a tight match last start against reigning champions Australia, but will be buoyed by the spectacular performance of left-arm ace Mohammad Amir who’s finally reaching the starry heights reserved for him before his career spiraled after being jailed for match-fixing.
Matches between India and Pakistan have produced the three highest television ratings in cricket history behind the 2011 World Cup final between India and Sri Lanka.
