India and Australia face each other on Friday night in the second T20I at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur. The match kicks off at 7pm IST. As it has been raining in Nagpur for the past few days and both teams’ training on Thursday has been canceled due to the same, there are fears that rain on match day could be a bummer. However, according to Accuweather, the weather on the day is expected to be promising.
Accuweather says the average temperature on the day will be around 29 degrees Celsius with 64 percent cloud cover.
Speaking of match time in particular, the toss takes place at 6.30pm IST and the action kicks off exactly after half an hour. During this period, the temperature is expected to be around 26 degrees Celsius, according to the battery weather. Meanwhile, temperatures are expected to be around 25 to 25 degrees Celsius in the latter part of the race.
It is worth noting that India is chasing Australia 0-1 in the series of three matches after losing the first game by 4 wickets in Mohali.
A tame attack on the Indian pace painted a poor image of itself in the first T20I. Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4-0-52-0), Harshal Patel (4-0-49-0). Umesh Yadav (2-0-27-2), Hardik Pandya (2-0-22-0) all leaked points as India failed to defend a total of 208 points. Cameron Green (61) and Matthew Wade (45*) played with the bat for Australia.
Hardik Pandya had scored 71 not out on 30 balls after KL Rahul’s 55 out of 35 to help India to 208/6 in 20 overs.
