The rain has already forced four wash-outs in the tournament and several training sessions were also affected by the weather in the UK

On Sunday, the biggest match of the World Cup, Pakistan vs India, is scheduled to be played at Old Trafford in Manchester. But, rain has threatened to spoil the mood of billions of fans who’re waiting for the action.

According to UK’s met office, there are 50% chances of precipitation at 12pm on Sunday which will be increased to 70% by 1:00pm.
