If the game gets washed out there is no reserved day for the game and thus both teams will share a point. Meanwhile, India and Pakistan match has been sold out as over 500,000 fans have already booked their place to attend the showpiece event in Australia, starting October 16.

The clash between the arch-rivals, scheduled at the MCG on October 23, is sold out, “with additional standing room tickets snapped up within minutes of going on sale. An official re-sale platform will be launched closer to the event, where fans can exchange tickets at face value,” ICC said in a release.
