The much anticipated Group 2 T20 World Cup encounter between India and Pakistan has been delayed due to rain in Kolkata. The covers are currently been lifted at the ground, as three super-sopper machines are fast at work to drain out any excess water in the outfield.
It was raining for much of the afternoon in the city of joy, which died down towards the evening to give the crowd hope of the match going ahead as scheduled. India and Pakistan are meeting each other after their last encounter in the Asia Cup ended in victory for the men in blue.
