Edgbaston Birmingham Weather Forecast: Birmingham Weather Today Friday ENG vs IND 5th Test


Edgbaston Birmingham weather forecast: The SportsRush brings you the weather forecast for day 1 of the ENG vs IND test.

The highly anticipated test between England and India has kicked off at Birmingham’s Edgbaston Stadium. Ben Stokes won the coin toss and opted to play first given the nature of the pitch and the atmosphere around it.

Shubhman Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara battered well, but Gill shoved a delivery from James Anderson and Zak Crawley took an easy slip grip. Cheteshwar Pujara also couldn’t last long and retired on his individual score of 13 points. The Indian team lost their 2nd wicket at 46 runs.

Virat Kohli and Hanuma Vihari then attempted to partner for the 3rd wicket. Hanuma Vihari was playing at 14 (46 balls) and Virat Kohli was at 1 (7 balls) when the rain interrupted the proceedings.

Weather forecast in Edgbaston Birmingham

Rain forced the referees to an early lunch at Edgbaston Stadium, and the pitch staff were relatively quick to cover the pitch to save it from any kind of damage. Rain is quite common at this part of the year in England, and it was also forecast earlier for the first day of the game.

The predictions for the next three hours of the game are not very good either. There is a 40% to 51% chance of rain in the next three hours of the game. After three hours, the chance of rain will drop to 34%. Thus, there may be several rain breaks between matches.

The temperature will vary between 16 and 19 degrees Celsius, so it will be quite cool, and the rainfall will be up to 60% during the day. There will be cloudy conditions during the day, but the sun can sneak in a bit in between. The pacers will have an advantage given the favorable conditions.
