In the T20 World Cup 2022, Team India will start its campaign with a match against Pakistan. This match between the two teams is to be played on 23 October at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The Indian team had to face defeat in the last T20 World Cup, for which the Men in Blue are desperate to take revenge. In this important match, the captaincy of the Indian team will be in the hands of Rohit Sharma. The same Babar Azam will take over the command of the Pakistan team.
However, things are not looking good about this match. Actually it is raining heavily in Melbourne. In such a situation, it is also a cause of concern for the cricketers, fans as well as the organizers. There is a possibility of heavy rain in Melbourne even on the day of the match i.e. 23 October.
