And soon after the very first over, rain came back again and the players were forced to rush back to the dugout.
While India came into the game on the back of a comfortable win over Ireland at the same venue, Pakistan were stunned by co-hosts USA in Dallas in their opener.
Coming into the marquee clash against India after loss against USA, Pakistan might still not be in a must-win situation but a washout against India will make their road towards Super 8 a bit more difficult.
Here are the possible outcomes explaining Pakistan’s scenarios for a Super 8 qualification if the game against India is a washout:
If the India vs Pakistan game is called off due to rain, both the teams will share a point each.
A washout will keep India at the second spot in Group A and Pakistan will also remain at the fourth spot with a solitary point.
Pakistan will have to then win their remaining two games against Canada and Ireland and that too with decent margins.
Pakistan will also have to hope India win their remaining matches, including handing a defeat to the current group toppers USA.
Group toppers USA will also have to lose both their remaining group matches if Pakistan are to qualify for Super 8s.
A point today (in case of a washout) and two probable wins against Canada and Ireland will take Pakistan to 5 points and chances of them topping the group are not likely.
After their rain break, India resumed their innings at 8 for no loss after 1 over.
Pakistan captain Babar Azam won the toss and opted to bowl at Nassau Stadium
