At this point in time, Team India remains to be the only unbeaten team in the tournament. While the side has motored along easily to their three wins, they had to fight hard against Afghanistan. Nevertheless, this is the kind of a victory that pumps the entire dressing room up. The ‘Men in Blue’ have got to play four games in the coming ten days which could get quite hectic.

It will be a huge test for them given that they will also be facing some unpredictable teams of the likes of Windies, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. First, up will be the Caribbean challenge who will look to expose some vulnerabilities of their opposition. Windies need to win this game at all costs to stay alive in the tournament.

The loss to New Zealand in the previous encounter would have indeed been heartbreaking. They had everything in control and should have won that game by all means. However, the pendulum swung away even before they’d have realised putting them into a situation such as this. Though, if they somehow defeat India today, they’ll surely have their hopes alive as they’d be facing Sri Lanka and Afghanistan in their remaining two games.

Manchester will play the host to this crucial match of the World Cup 2019. The pitch, typically, has been a high-scoring one but only if the batsmen apply themselves well. At the same time, there is something on offer for the bowlers as well. The pitch has got a dry look to it which might assist the spinners. But how would the weather fare?

How’s the weather expected to be?

The weather forecast for the day is mostly sunny with a gentle breeze blowing across. There isn’t any chance of precipitation, which of course, is great news. 11 per cent cloud cover is predicted to be there throughout the day. This should not affect the added advantage for any of the teams after winning the toss. The humidity, though, is slightly higher in some parts of the day. Hence, you could expect the ball to quicken after hitting the deck and it should come nicely onto the bat.
