India vs Australia 2017: Rain Unlikely to Affect Guwahati’s Return to International Cricket
Australia’s tour of India has been hampered due to rain, and the rain may finally stay away from cricket in Guwahati, as India and Australia will clash against each other in Barsapara Stadium located on the outskirts of the city.
The previous T20I in Ranchi saw rain delaying the proceedings and the game was shortened to just five overs, as the Men in Blue secured a comfortable win to take the lead in the three-match series.
According to Skymet weather, it appears that there will be overcast conditions throughout but that will not affect the match. Must of the clouds are to the south of Guwahati, and while there will be some rains in the day, conditions will remain to be good by the time it is 7 pm when the match is scheduled to start.
“While the city of Guwahati will witness some isolated showers during the afternoon hours, the night time will remain pleasant and rain free. Spectators will be able to enjoy the show without weather gods providing any hindrance,” said the reporter.
However, if the rain does come, the drainage system of the ground will be tested for the very first time which may spoil the fun for the cricket fans.
The match in Guwahati will be sold-out as all of the 27,000 tickets have been sold, which shows that locals are not bothered about the weather playing a spoilsport.
The Australian team will look to find some inspiration in their new captain, David Warner to turn things around on this tour, as the visitors will look to stay alive in the T20 series after losing the ODI series 4-1 previously.
