The rescheduled fifth Test match between England and India was interrupted by rain on the first two days. The first day saw only 73 overs bowled by the English bowlers with the visitors scoring 338/7. The next day saw only 38.5 overs bowled during the day, thanks once again to the rain interruptions. Notably, rain interrupted the game only once on the first day while it happened twice on day 2.
The fans are worried about whether the game will have an outcome or not. However, it looks like the game is most likely to get a result. Half of England’s side is already back to the dugout and you expect the result to come out with three days still left in the Test match.
On the other hand, the Ben Stokes-led side would still be keen to win the game from here. Talking about the weather reports in Birmingham, the game might be interrupted by rain around 11 AM according to the English timings. However, the weather for the rest of the day will be clear as a mirror. For the unversed, the Test match is scheduled to start at 10:30 AM local time.
In normal circumstances, the game would have started at 11 AM local time. With the game interrupted by rain and 17 overs lost on Day1, the game started at 10:30 AM on July 2. Now with more overs lost, the match will resume at a rescheduled time. However, after half an hour of the game, it is predicted that the game will not be interrupted due to showers. The showers might come between 11 AM to 12 PM.
After this, the weather will be clear and fans in the stadium and at home will witness almost a full day of cricket. It is to be noted that the weather reports might not be accurate as this is monsoon time in England.
