Rain Threatens Disruption of Pakistan Vs. England 4th T20

The fourth T20 International between Pakistan and England, set to take place at the Kennington Oval in London, is under significant threat from adverse weather conditions. Recent forecasts indicate a 32% chance of rain, raising concerns about the series’ final match.

The series has already been significantly impacted by weather disruptions. The first T20I in Leeds was washed out, and the third T20I in Sophia Gardens, Cardiff, was also abandoned due to heavy rain.

Despite these interruptions, the second T20I at Edgbaston, Birmingham, proceeded without issue, with England securing a victory over Pakistan by 23 runs, giving them a 1-0 lead in the series.

This series is particularly important as it serves as the final competitive engagement for both teams before the T20 World Cup 2024, which begins on June 2 in the United States and the West Indies. Both teams are eager to build momentum ahead of the tournament.

The potential disruption of the fourth T20I adds pressure on Pakistan, who trail 1-0 in the series. They are looking to level the series to gain confidence and momentum before the T20 World Cup.

Defending T20 World Cup champions England aim to secure another series victory to boost their confidence heading into the major event in June.

Pakistan will begin their World Cup campaign against co-hosts USA on June 6 in Dallas, while England will face Scotland on June 4 in Barbados.
