Two-time champions India and 2015 runners-up New Zealand will leave no stone unturned when they will battle for final World Cup berth at Manchester's Old Trafford cricket stadium.
However, the rain gods might have something else planned for today's game.
Light showers are expected in the morning, which will lead to overcast conditions in the late morning at Old Trafford.
Fast bowlers will love the cloud cover over the Old Trafford pitch, if Indian captain Virat Kohli wins the toss he would want to make use of his pace attack spearheaded by Bumrah & Co although Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed had chosen to ball first at the same venue after winning the toss against India and lost, so it will be a tough call for anybody calling the toss.
The rain is expected to affect the crucial first hour of the match, according to the weather report.
