Rain to play spoilsport on last two days of Test match

In what seems to be a sign of fate for the summit clash, the rains will intensify on the fifth day. There is a 70 percent chance of rain on the final day of the Test match and the weather forecast for the following days will remain more or less the same. The weather forecast suggests that both the teams will benefit in the first three days of the game as showers are likely to balance the game in the last two days.

India and Australia will meet in the final of the World Test Championship (WTC) starting from June 7 at The Oval. The Indian team enters the most crucial red ball assignment of the year from the recently concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) season.

Fans will recall that rain played out at SpielSport when the IPL final was extended by almost three days. Intermittent rain is often the norm at this time of the year in England, and it has adversely affected many of India’s previous tours. On that note, here’s the five-day weather forecast for the WTC summit showdown, scheduled for June 7-11.

Day 1

Temperatures are forecast to reach 13°C-16°C during the game. The weather will be partly cloudy, bringing the seam bowlers into the game at some points, but overall there is a 10 percent chance of rain.

Second day

No rain is forecast for the second day of the competition, with weather on the milder sunny side and temperatures ranging from 9°C-19°C. If the pitch is flat as well, the fans will be in for an absolute run fest.

Day three

Clouds may start appearing again on the third day of the test. However, there will be no rain as the temperature rises to 22 degrees Celsius by the end of the day’s play.

Fourth day

This is when the game starts to get interesting. As of Tuesday, there is a 50 percent chance of rain on the crucial fourth day of the Test match. With the possibility of a drizzle about two hours before the start of play, one can assume that there will be multiple breaks on the final day of the WTC finals.

The fifth day

In what seems to be a sign of fate for the summit clash, the rains will intensify on the fifth day. There is a 70 percent chance of rain on the final day of the Test match and the weather forecast for the following days will remain more or less the same.

The weather forecast suggests that both the teams will benefit in the first three days of the game as showers are likely to balance the game in the last two days.
