Pakistan vs Ireland upcoming T20 World Cup match is facing a potential washout due to inclement weather in Florida. The weather forecast for Florida paints a worrying picture with heavy rain and the threat of flash floods looming large. Concerns are mounting over whether the game can proceed at the Central Broward Park Stadium in Lauderhill, Florida, raising questions about the ICC's contingency plans.
Meteorologists predict heavy rainfall, coinciding with the scheduled match time. Additionally, concerns about flash floods pose a significant risk to the safety of fans, event staff and even players.

What is the current situation in Florida?
The Florida governor has declared a state of emergency in Broward County, where Lauderhill is based. The city's official website has issued a press note that reads: "A weather system has brought South Florida excessive rain yesterday (Tuesday) and today. It is likely to continue through Friday. The City Of Lauderhill has crews working in areas of concern to help minimize ponding."
According to the AP news website: "Wednesday's downpours and subsequent flooding blocked roads, floated vehicles and delayed the Florida Panthers on their way to Stanley Cup games in Canada against the Edmonton Oilers… Numerous roads were flooded and impassable for vehicles. On major artery Interstate 95 in Broward County, southbound traffic was being diverted around a flooded section, and contractors were on their way to pump the drainage system."
According to the National Weather Service, South Florida is under a Flood Watch through Friday evening.

Can the Match Be Relocated?
With the weather predictions being so dire, fans are not just concerned; they are actively requesting the ICC to consider relocating the match. However, the logistical challenges are significant. Finding a suitable alternative venue on such short notice, with the necessary infrastructure and availability, is no easy task. Even rescheduling the match within the tournament schedule could pose problems.
According to the ICC Website, in the event of a match relocation, any fan with a confirmed match ticket can attend the match at the new venue. For those who prefer not to attend, they can request a refund via email at the ICC website. The ICC will notify fans via email about the match relocation, providing details on how to obtain new tickets for the new venue or how to request a refund.

How a washout could affect Pakistan's chances?
After India beats the USA, net run rate (NRR) will not come into play. Pakistan needs to beat Ireland and hope the Irish beat the Americans as well. If it's a washout, then Pakistan will go home.

Lauderhill is to host the following games:
USA vs Ireland: June 14 (Friday)
India vs Canada: June 15 (Saturday)
Pakistan vs Ireland: June 16 (Sunday)
