As per the predictions, there is a likelihood of rain on Sunday, and this will be a big concern for the organizers. India vs Pakistan is a marquee clash, and the tournament shall be incomplete without the two sides meet. It needs to be seen if we would get a full game or a shortened encounter this Sunday.
