PAK vs ENG: Leeds Weather Update as First T20I Faces Potential Washout

PAK vs ENG Leeds weather

England and Pakistan are scheduled to clash in the first T20I of a four-match series at Headingley Cricket Ground, Leeds, on Wednesday. However, persistent rain since the morning threatens to cancel the match, which is set to start at 6:30 pm local time.

According to The Weather Channel, heavy rain amounting to 8.34mm is expected from 7 pm, slightly reducing afterward but likely not enough to allow play. The forecast strongly suggests that the match will be washed out due to rain.

This T20I series is crucial for both teams as it marks their final preparation before the T20 World Cup 2024, commencing on June 1. Pakistan will play their group matches in the United States, while England will head to the West Indies for theirs.

Pakistan recently drew a home series 2-2 against New Zealand, with one match abandoned due to rain, and won 2-1 against Ireland in Dublin. However, the team, led by Babar Azam, still faces several challenges ahead of the World Cup.

England, captained by Jos Buttler, last played a T20I series in January against the West Indies, which they lost 3-2.


England: Jos Buttler (c), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonathan Bairstow, Harry Brook, Sam Curran, Ben Duckett, Tom Hartley, Will Jacks, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Adil Rashid, Phil Salt, Reece Topley, Mark Wood.
