Story highlights

The conditions are expected to be overcast through the day, with rain to disturb play at least a couple of times

Virat Kohli-led India will take on Pakistan in one of the most anticipated clashes in the Cricket World Cup 2019 tomorrow at Manchester cricket ground. 

The ongoing edition of the World Cup has had the poorest weather. It has already created a record of becoming the most rain-affected World Cup with four matches, so far, being washed out. 

India's previous match against New Zealand was the most recent match to be called off due to rain at Trent Bridge, Nottingham. The match was abandoned without a single ball being bowled. 

Now, all eyes will be on India's next clash which is against arch-rivals Pakistan and it is expected that it will also be affected by rain, as light showers are predicted in Manchester. 

The conditions are expected to be overcast through the day, with rain to disturb play at least a couple of times.

Showers are predicted at around 10:00 am GMT and between 3:00 to 5:00 pm GMT.

A full 50-over a side game is unlikely but it's a sigh of relief for the fans as there will at least be a match played.

The sun is expected to come out briefly, but the cloud cover will be seen throughout the day.

Players, coaches and fans have slammed the ICC over no reserve days kept for the league stage matches but the ICC has responded saying it would have not been possible logistically.
