Edgbaston Birmingham weather today: The SportsRush brings the weather forecast for the fifth day of the ENG vs IND Test 1 to you.
The fifth Test match of the India Tour of England 2021 will be played as part of a rescheduled match to mark the start of the Indian Tour of England 2022. Apart from a one-time Test, India will also play three T20Is and so many ODIs in a 17 day period on this tour.
Currently leading 2-1 in the series with one game to play, a first Test victory in Birmingham under a brand new captain will register India’s fourth Test series victory in England. While even a draw will hand the Pataudi Trophy to India, an Indian defeat will see the series end in a 2-2 draw.
COVID-19 played a role before the game even started by excluding England wicketkeeper batsman Ben Foakes and India captain Rohit Sharma from the game. While England named their playing XI on the eve of the game, India will do the same when it comes to the draw now.

Edgbaston Birmingham weather today
There’s nothing new about a rain-induced disruption to a Test match played in England. Even the last day of Test cricket in this country saw the loss of a session due to rain.
Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the rain gods choose to make their presence felt in Edgbaston on Friday. Today’s weather forecast also suggests that rain will cause trouble at least once during match hours today.
According AccuWeather, there is a maximum 51% chance of rain in Birmingham at match time. Although this number is expected for the afternoon session, the chance of rain either side of this period will remain above 30% except for the last hour of play of the day. Otherwise, Friday will usually be a cool and pleasant day in the city.
