Weather in Port Elizabeth today: What is the weather forecast in St George’s Park Gqeberha for SA vs BAN Test Day 1?


Weather in Port Elizabeth: The SportsRush brings before you the weather forecast for Day 1 of the second SA vs BAN test.

During the first day of the second Test of Bangladesh’s ongoing tour of South Africa at Gqeberha, South African captain Dean Elgar won the coin toss and opted to strike first.

After a 220-point victory in the first Test in Durban, South Africa will enter the field with an unchanged playing XI for this game.

Bangladesh, on the other hand, made some changes by bringing in hitter Tamim Iqbal and spinner Taijul Islam for hitter Shadman Islam and Taskin Ahmed.

South Africa, who have been playing extraordinarily well in Test cricket of late, will be looking to end their international summer on a high. Meanwhile, Bangladesh are reportedly keen to end their losing streak in testing in South Africa. Having come very close to doing the same at Kingsmead until round four, there’s no reason the visitors couldn’t challenge the hosts at St George’s Park.

Weather in Port Elizabeth today

Unlike the last day of the first test, the temperature at the start time of this game will be 10 degrees cooler. In what should be a cloudy day in Gqeberha, the rain could end up being a spoilsport, especially in the first two sessions.

According to AccuWeather, the morning session at St George’s Park will be played with around a 50% chance of rain. With no difference in temperature or likelihood of rain, the afternoon session will be played under the same threat of driving rain in Gqeberha today.

Regarding the third session, the probability of rain should drop partially (to 30%) and not entirely. Therefore, players returning to the clubhouse due to a rain break should come as no surprise on Friday.
