PAK vs IND: Toss delayed due to rain in New York

The toss for the match between Pakistan and India has been delayed due to ongoing rain at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York on Sunday. The match was supposed to start 10:30am local time with toss taking place at 10:00am but that too is likely to be delayed as well as the rain in New York is continuing with gaps. The match between the two countries is one of the most watched events globally with both teams set to reignite their rivalry at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York at 8pm PST after a half-an-hour delay as it started raining there just minutes ahead of the toss. The Men in Green, led by skipper Babar Azam, desperately need a win against India after the shocking loss against the United States in their first match of the mega tournament. Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma-led India will have one foot in the Super 8 if they win against the Green Shirts since they have already defeated Ireland in their opening match. India and Pakistan have met seven times in T20 World Cups where India won five matches while Pakistan won only one. The remaining T20I resulted in a tie with India winning via bowl out. The only T20I Pakistan has won against India in a T20 World Cup was back in 2021 when Babar-led side played against Virat Kohli-led Men in Blue. Meanwhile, Pakistan has received a much-needed boost ahead of the crucial match with all-rounder Imad Wasim declared fit to play. Imad missed Pakistan’s opening game against the US and had also sat out the final match of their pre-tournament series with England due to a rib injury. But Pakistan coach Gary Kirsten told the pre-match press conference that the 35-year-old left-arm spinner is fit to play on Sunday. Kirsten also said that Pakistan are eager to bounce back after the demoralising defeat against the USA.
