- Wet weather forecast for MCG on Sunday and Monday
- England and Pakistan could be crowned joint champions
The prospect of an unprecedented shared T20 World Cup title is looming with an inclement weather forecast for Sunday in Melbourne threatening to wash out the final between England and Pakistan. In what would be a first for cricket, the 2022 finalists could be crowned joint world champions if rain hits the MCG as expected over the weekend and lingers into Monday.
There is a 95% chance of rain in Melbourne on Sunday, with up to 25mm predicted to fall by the Bureau of Meteorology, and a chance of a possibly severe thunderstorm. Play is scheduled to start at 7pm AEDT (8am GMT) but with a washout possible, the game could spill over to the reserve day on Monday, when play would start at 3pm local time.
