India Vs England Warm-Up Match Guwahati Weather Update: Will Rain Spoil IND Vs ENG Practice Match Today?
On Saturday, September 30, the Indian cricket team will face England in their first warm-up match. Unlike the Pakistan-New Zealand match in Hyderabad, this game will not be played behind closed doors, and fans will be able to watch it live at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati.
Team India will use the game to put their team to the test. To get back into match mode, Hardik Pandya should play the entire 100-over game. He was rested for the India vs. Australia One-Day International series, which concluded a few days ago.
England has only just landed in India and has had their first practise session. They will seek to become used to the conditions and weather of India. The men of Jos Buttler are considered the heavy favourite to win the competition. Not to mention, they are the defending champions and, on paper, appear to be the finest team in the tournament, covering all bases and departments.
England will want to give as much playing time to guys who haven't played much cricket in India as possible. Consider Harry Brook.
Brook was added to the World Cup roster as a last-minute replacement for Jason Roy. Brook's amazing form rendered the selectors defenceless, forcing them to make the difficult decision to bring Brook in. However, he would have to adjust to the environment in India.
England's other significant player is Ben Stokes. He has returned to the England ODI squad after a year absence, and what a comeback it has been, as he recently hit the greatest ODI score for the Three Lions. Stokes is thrilled about the World Cup and will be hoping to win the Three Lions' second World Cup in a row.
Weather in Guwahati for September 30th
The weather in Guwahati could cause havoc during India's warm-up match against England. On Saturday, September 30, Guwahati will be cloudy throughout the day, with thunderstorms possible in the afternoon. Rain becomes more likely throughout the afternoon.
Guwahati's rain chances range from 40 to 50 percent between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. It may or may not rise over the day. Rain should, at the very least, halt the game for a short period of time, if not completely cancel it. Needless to say, the stadium's ground crew is having a difficult day.
