The one common element in this Cricket World Cup has been the poor weather, which has played spoilsport on multiple occasions. The consistent rain has led to plenty of matches being abandoned. The latest of which was the Men in Blue's clash against New Zealand. But on June 16, is the most highly anticipated match for the fans across the world, when Virat Kohli's side face Sarfaraz Ahmed's outfit on Father's Day. So is there a chance for India Vs Pakistan (Old Trafford, Manchester) to be washed out? Here's what the weatherman has to say!
