Rain may disrupt the much-awaited Pak-Aus series in Rawalpindi


RAWALPINDI: As Pakistan and Australia prepare in Rawalpindi for the historic Test series that begins March 4, Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has forecast rain on days three, four, and five of the matches.

Hosts have been practicing hard over the last three days, while Australia began their preparations for the Test series opener.

Meanwhile, the weather is expected to have a significant impact on the opening Test between Pakistan and Australia. For the first two days of the five-day match, the forecast is clear but mild to moderate showers are likely on the final three days.

Pakistan hosted their first Test in Rawalpindi in ten years in 2019 against Sri Lanka. Three days of the Test match were ruined by rain, with matches only possible on days one and five.

Australia will face Pakistan in three Tests, three One-Day Internationals, and a Twenty20 International. Rawalpindi will host the opening Test and first white-ball leg of the series, while Karachi and Lahore will host the second and third Tests, respectively. The training sessions for both Pakistan and Australia have been canceled in Rawalpindi due to rain on Thursday.

Meanwhile, both the teams were scheduled to finalize their preparations for the first Test starting from March 04 at the Rawalpindi International Stadium.

The Aussies practiced at the venue only two days since arriving in Pakistan on February 27.

Meanwhile, it is highly expected that the rain may affect the first five-day game. The forecast is clear for the first two days of the Test match but light to moderate showers are expected on the last three days.

The Aussies will play three Tests, the same number of ODIs, and a T20I against Pakistan.

Rawalpindi will host the Test series opener and the limited-overs games, while Karachi and Lahore will host the second and third Test respectively.
