Rain Threatens to Disrupt Another Pakistan-England T20I

Forecasters predict that Tuesday will bring heavy rains to Cardiff, with up to 90% chance of precipitation.

The UK Met Office predicts a 50% probability of rain in the morning, increasing to a 90% chance by midday.

At that point, the likelihood of rain dramatically decreases to 50% during the match, which is set to start at 6:30 p.m. local time.

While the temperature is predicted to range from 13 to 14 degrees Celsius, the humidity level is predicted to reach up to 94%.

The increased humidity will make it more difficult for bowlers to grip the ball and will also be dangerous for fielders if the play starts.

Furthermore, such high moisture leads to a damp and unpredictable pitch which may cause additional difficulties for both batters and bowlers.

Notably, Pakistan and England won the first Twenty20 International of their four-match series without bowling a ball, and on Saturday, the host team won the second match in Birmingham.

With two games remaining, the host team has a 1-0 lead in the four-game series.

For those who are unaware, the four-match Twenty20 International series between Pakistan and England, slated for May 22 to 30, will act as a prelude for both sides before the T20 World Cup 2024, with the winners of the last edition skipping the warm-up games in favor of this year’s mega tournament.
