How is the weather in Chester-le-Street?
Updated - Jun 21, 2018 12:24 pm
England and Australia will lock horns in the first dead rubber of the five-match series in Chester-le-Street on Thursday. The hosts have already sealed the series in the last game when they posted the highest ODI total ever. They would be looking to pile on the agony of the visitors and aim for a whitewash now. However, Australia is known for their spirit and they never go down without putting up a fight which will make the contest interesting weather permitting.
Eoin Morgan was extremely proud of his team after a record-breaking game at the Trent Bridge. He would hope that they continue to play in the same vein in the lead up to the World Cup as the country is more than hopeful of the glory this time around. Tim Paine has more questions to answer after yet another lacklustre show from his boys. He will have to infuse energy in them and lead from the front in order to pull one back on the rampant hosts.
Will it rain?
According to Accu Weather, it is currently partly sunny with a decent cloud cover in Chester-le-Street and the temperatures hovering around 10 Degrees. The conditions will get cloudy in the lead up to the game but there are no chances of rain whatsoever. Almost 70% of cloud cover will remain throughout the game but they will never open up to threaten the proceedings.
There will be humidity though in the middle and the players will have to cope with the same. The crowd will be excited for the action as yet another record-breaking game is expected.
Overall Verdict: The match will be played without any rain interruption in Chester-le-Street at the Riverside Ground. A high-scoring encounter is expected as the visitors will have to come up with a plan to stop the run-flow of the opposition.
