Today Weather Forecast – Temperature & Rain Chances
So, the all important game of ICC World T20I 2016 is all set to be played between Pakistan and India today at Kolkata. It is really a high voltage affair and the result of this match is really important to shape up the Group 2 of the Super 10 round of the tournament. Pakistan have won their opening match while India lost to New Zealand pretty badly and will come in this important game under some serious pressure.
But wait! Is this match really going to take place? You may be wondering why we are saying that. Well, it’s the weather that has turned out to be a major hindrance before the match and we suspect whether we will be able to get a full match in today’s all important fixture or not.
Eden Gardens Kolkata Weather Update
As per the weather update, occasional thunderstorms are expected in Kolkata today that will be expected to end till 4:30 pm. Even right now it is raining in Kolkata and the ground staff at the Eden Gardens will really have to do some good work to prepare the ground before the scheduled start of play today. If it ends raining till 4:30 pm as forecasted, they will still have almost 3 hours to do some good work and prepare the ground for a perfect game today.
The weather forecast suggests that it will be mostly clear in the evening and the skies will open up completely by 9 pm. So, the good news for cricket fans is that we can expect to have a full game between India and Pakistan today.
Eden Gardens Kolkata Rain Chances
As mentioned in the weather update section, it is expected to rain at Eden Gardens Kolkata during the day but the clouds will definitely go away as the start of play draws closer. So, it will rain before the match but it is not expected to rain at all during the match and we can expect a full game of cricket today where both the sides will be fighting for their pride and all-important 2 points to climb up the points table.
Eden Gardens Kolkata Pitch Conditions
The wicket at Eden Gardens, Kolkata for Afghanistan- Sri Lanka encounter provided spinners with some slow turn and grip. The quick googlies and fizzers from young Rashid Khan, the legspinner in Shahid Afridi’s mould, skidded on as well and really tied the opposition down. However, runs were still available as runs in excess of 300 were scored in that game too. So, we can expect a similar pitch today but what is going to be a winning score on that wicket can’t be said because it’s India taking on Pakistan and we always have unexpected results when these two sides are up against each other.
