Officially, the second leg of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has commenced with all the teams looking to book their place in the playoffs. While the teams in the top 4 of the points table are sitting pretty with 3 of them almost certain to go ahead, there will be a tussle for the final spot with 5 teams still in contention for it. Delhi Daredevils (DD) is one of those who will face Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in their new den at the MCA International Stadium in Pune. However, the weather also will play an important during this phase of the tournament.
MS Dhoni and his men suffered a loss at the hands of Mumbai Indians in their last game at the same venue. They would want to shrug off the bad day and get back on track soon now. While their opponents are on a high after their new captain Shreyas Iyer led them to a thumping victory over Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). But it will be extremely tough for them to get past the Men in Yellow who are a bunch of experienced cricketers.
Will it rain in Pune?
According to Accu Weather, the climate in Pune is extremely hot with the temperatures hovering around 38 Degree Celsius. It is set to remain hazy throughout the day with sunshine over the head and the atmosphere cooling down in the evening. The temperature will go down in the late 20s by the time the game will start and the dew will start settling in which will again play its part. Rain is not the forecast but the groundsmen have to be ready. Even in Bangalore, there was no rain but it made its presence felt and interrupted the match for 33 minutes.
Chennai is slowly building Pune as their fortress and expect yet another full house for this game as two teams will come out to prove their worth.
Overall Verdict: There is absolutely no chance of pouring down in Pune city on Monday and the fans will be able to enjoy the heroics of their T20 superstars.
