India is all set to take on Pakistan in a couple of hours in the Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup at Melbourne Cricket Ground.

More than the match, the fans are eagerly waiting for what the weather will be like.

On Friday evening, it poured down heavily raising fears that the match will be washed off.

Even earlier this week, the weather department had forecast 90 per cent chances of rain on Sunday.

However, there is a piece of good news.

Finally, it looks like the rain has eased off and the match is likely to happen.

As per Accuweather, at 7 PM Melbourne Time (1:30 PM IST), there is 100 per cent cloud cover expected, but the chances of rain are quite less.

For the entire duration of the match, the cloud cover would be there.

One or two showers are expected, but it is unlikely that the rain will washout the game.
