Melbourne’s weather has been an enemy to an otherwise terrific T20 World Cup. Just two out of six matches have not been affected by rain, with three washouts and another match decided by the Duckworth/Lewis method.

Unfortunately, rain is expected to have a say in Sunday’s Final between Pakistan and England. Both teams produced magnificent performances in the semi-finals and will be raring to go for the big one, but all eyes will be on the skies in the hope the weather is kind.

The Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology (bom.gov.au) forecasts a 100% chance of rain in Melbourne on Sunday. Anywhere between 8-20mm is expected. Also, there is a chance of a thunderstorm, possibly severe, with winds decreasing to 15-20km/h in the evening.

But, when will the rain likely fall? Is there a chance that it will clear by game time? Unlikely. According to AccuWeather’s hourly forecast, there is a 63% chance of precipitation from 8-10pm, with rain forecast. AccuWeather also predicts at least 5mm will fall during the day, followed by 2.7mm in the evening and 3.5mm at night.

Is there a reserve day for the T20 World Cup Final?

Yes. However, the weather forecast is ordinary for Monday as well. bom.gov.au forecasts a 95% chance of rain, with 5-10mm expected. Most is predicted to fall in the morning and afternoon, which provides hope that the match can go ahead on the reserve day given it starts at 3pm local time.

A minimum of ten overs will be needed to decide the match, rather than the usual five.

“If the reserve day is allocated, every effort will be made to complete the match on the scheduled day with any necessary reduction in overs taking place and only if the minimum number of overs necessary to constitute a match cannot be bowled on the scheduled day will the match be completed on the reserve day,” read the playing conditions.
