Rain threatens to wash away the India-Pakistan World T20 clash at the Eden Gardens as dark clouds cover the skies in Kolkata. Earlier, the skies had cleared up after a brief spell of showers hit the city early on Saturday morning.
In some bad news for the cricket fans, who have been expecting an epic clash between the arch-rivals India and Pakistan, after the initial respite, rain once again threatens to spoil the party at the Eden Gardens as dark cloud covers the skies in Kolkata.

The marquee clash was earlier scheduled to be played at Dharamsala, but it was moved to the Eden Gardens in Kolkata due to security concerns. Having lost their first match in the World T20 against New Zealand at Nagpur on Tuesday, the match against Pakistan is a must-win for the hosts to stay alive in the tournament. On the other hand, Pakistan won their first match against Bangladesh at the same venue and will be looking to oust India from the tournament.
