Cricket World Cup climate: rains may tarnish Sunday's match between India and Pakistan

After the bad weather that affected the Cricket World Cup in the United Kingdom last week, more wet weather is expected for the India-Pakistan match on Sunday.

The meeting will begin at 9:30 a.m. BST (5:30 EDT) and will be held at Old Trafford Cricket Ground just outside of Manchester.

Rain periods are expected throughout the United Kingdom on Sunday.

While the rain is not expected to be intense and lasts all day, it can make the playing surface wet and slippery at times, and spectators will need to bring rain gear with them.

There will also be intervals of sun, especially in the southeast areas.

The temperature will rise from around 13 C (56 F) at the start of the fixture to 18 C (64 F) during the afternoon hours.

Last week, the persistent rain from Wednesday night to Thursday morning made the playing field at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham get too wet to play the India-New Zealand game.

Around 3 p.m. Local time, the officers canceled the game.

The nearby airport in Leeds and Bradford reported continuous rain for 18 hours. The resulting flood caused many road closures Thursday morning around Nottinghamshire, the county Fire and Rescue Service reported.
