SYDNEY: Rain threatens to derail the T20 World Cup when large supports enter the fray this weekend, with Australia’s opener against New Zealand. An India v Pakistan blockbuster is in danger of being washed out. Parts of Australia are opposite a third straight La Nina weather event with a wetter-than-average summer predictable. And downpours are predicted for Sydney and Melbourne from Friday through to next week.

Australia T20 World Cup Player Aaron Finch’s Australia begins their title defense against New Zealand at a sell-out Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday sunset — a repeat of 2021 final in Dubai. Where Mitchell Marsh’s unbeaten 77 motorized them to an eight-wicket win and maiden crown.
But the Bureau of Meteorology is predicting a
“very high (90 percent) chance of showers”
and possibly thunderstorms, with no reserved days for group games. They come into play for the semi-finals and final. It looks likewise gloomy for Sunday in Melbourne where India face Pakistan in a hotly-anticipated clash with up to 100,000 fans in the cavernous MCG. And tens of millions more alterations in to watch.

A minimum of five overs a side is required to start a match. The weather could also cause havoc in Hobart where games are scheduled for Friday and Sunday. Although England’s opener against Afghanistan in Perth on Saturday has a fine climate forecast.
Australia has a golden chance to become the first back-to-back T20 World Cup champions, with the advantage of being the only winners of cricket’s shortest format to have a crack at defending the title at home.
But they begin their campaign on the back of a 2-0 series loss to England this month. And with Finch confessing they were “tired” after a grueling build-up. Despite the tough lead-in, pace spearhead Pat Cummins maintained. They were better placed after defying the odds to win last year’s title.
“I think in some ways we are even better ready,” he said this week.
“We have played a lot more and we have drawn on the skills from last year.
“In saying that, T20 is a very indecisive format. You look around and there are perhaps four or five teams that convincingly could win it.”
New Zealand T20 World Cup Captain Kane Williamson’s New Zealand enter the rivalry in mixed form, having lost to South Africa and Pakistan. But lately enjoying victories against Bangladesh and Pakistan. Fast bowler Tim Southee is under no illusions that Australia will be a tough adversary, should their game go ahead.
“You can’t give them a sniff. They are a class lateral,” he said.
