Weather at Lord’s: The SportsRush presents for you the detailed weather prediction for the first ENG vs NZ Test at the Lord’s.
The first day of England’s international summer has been a pleasant day with sun making its presence felt on most part of the day. In addition to the weather, another non-playing delight at the Lord’s was the presence of some 7,500 spectators.
With the historic venue hosting an international match after almost a couple of years, the two aforementioned factors played a vital role in reaching the path towards normalcy amid a global pandemic.
As far as the players are concerned, the first day of the first Test between England and New Zealand doubtlessly belonged to visitors’ debutant opening batsman Devon Conway. Continuing his golden run in international cricket, the southpaw became the 12th Kiwi batsman to score a century on Test debut.
Devon Conway left South Africa in 2017 to try his luck in New Zealand… became eligible to play for Black Caps in August 2020… what a decision … ever since he donned the Black Cap he has been the talk of international cticket… South Africa’s loss is New Zealand’s gain!

Considering the assurance that Conway put on display with the bat in hand against a solid bowling attack, it was difficult to believe that he hadn’t played Test cricket before.

Much like the first day, the second day (Thursday) of the match will also be favourable for playing uninterrupted cricket. While the weather might not be as clear as Wednesday due to the presence of clouds in patches, the probability of rain will continue to remain in single digits.
According to AccuWeather, Day 3 (Friday) is likely to receive rain with a rain probability being in vicinity of 50%. Barring the third session, the rest of the day is expected to get affected by inclement weather.
As far as the forecast for Day 4 (Saturday) and Day 5 (Sunday) is concerned, it is mostly expected to be clear. While clouds will mark their presence on the last two days of the match, rain won’t play a spoilsport with the exception of brief passages in the first and second sessions on Day 5. The rain probability for the last two days mostly lies in single digit numbers.
