Edgbaston Cricket Ground Weather: The SportsRush brings the weather forecast for the fifth ENG vs IND Test Day 3 to you.
On day three of the rescheduled fifth Test match between England and India in Birmingham, England were able to score some quick runs in the morning session but at the cost of losing captain Ben Stokes (25 ).
Stokes, who had scored no runs during his brief midfield stint on Day 2, unsurprisingly continued his fearless batting approach. Despite massive reprieves in the form of dropped catches by India point guard Shardul Thakur and captain Jasprit Bumrah, Stokes was only able to contribute 25 (36) before Thakur and Bumrah joined hands to fire him at 38th.
Batting Jonny Bairstow, Stokes’ unbeaten batting partner yesterday, took center stage at Edgbaston as he scored 91* (113) in the first session was one of the main reasons the hosts were able to score 116 points in 18.3 overs before the lunch break.

Weather forecast for Edgbaston Cricket Ground Day 3
Day 3 of the current game was no different than the first two days in terms of the morning session being shortened due to rain. Weather forcing players to lunch early for the third day in a row means more overs will be lost on the day. That being said, the pace at which both teams are hitting can cover the loss of overs.
A positive development for players and fans is that the weather looks good for the game for the next two sessions today. A pleasant Sunday afternoon in Birmingham should be able to keep the rain away for the rest of the day as there is a maximum chance of rain of just 20% according to AccuWeather.
