This may create hurdles for the first innings, making the toss a deciding factor. Plus, the DLS equation is not far either.

What if there is a washout?

If the clash between India and Pakistan results in a washout, India and Pakistan will share a point each, as ICC has not assigned a reserved day for matches in the group stage.

Following the spread of points, India will continue to remain in the the second spot with three points, below USA (having four points) in Group A, Pakistan will slip to fourth position. Pakistan will have to win both of its matches against Canada and Ireland to make the Super Eight.
