After losing the ODI series 4-1, the Australian team is in tremendous pressure of not losing the T20I series as well. India vs Australia T20 series is leveled 1-1, the third and final encounter is on 13th September in Hyderabad at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium(Uppal). Australia’s stand-in captain David Warner returns to his IPL Home for the final battle of Australia’s tour of India 2017 and they would be expecting to end the battle on a high note. But the match is likely to be played because the weather will have an important part to play.
Since a couple of days, heavy rains have affected normal life of people in Hyderabad city and most likely to end the 3rd T20 game between India and Australia with no play expected.
There were heavy rains on 12th October, a day before match day in Uppal area. Heavy rains are predicted on 13th October since early morning. Definitely, rain will have a big part to play in the match and 40-over contest is highly unlikely.
There is 40-50% chance of rain in the morning and it goes higher by afternoon. At 7 PM when the match begins there is 34% chance of rain to arrive but the chances go higher thereafter. It might allow a couple of early hours game and that makes the toss so crucial. No doubt that the team who wins the toss will choose to bowl first. The first match also ended with result favoring team batting second.
These rains have lashed out several cities in South India which includes Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Vishakhapatnam, Chennai, and Mysore. For quite some time now, Hyderabad hasn’t witnessed a dry-spell. The varied intensity of thunderstorms and rains has hit the city of Nizams.
If the third game produces no results or it’s washed-out due to rain, the series will be leveled 1-1, i.e., no conclusive winner. Cricket fans will be hoping for a full 40-overs contest between the two teams.
