Weather at Trent Bridge Nottingham: The SportsRush presents for you the detailed weather prediction for the first day of ENG vs IND Test.
The toss for the first Test of the ongoing India’s tour of England will take place in another hour or so as the two reputed Test nations will lock horns in their 11th five-match series.
Coming on the back of playing a four-match Test series in India earlier this year, 2021 will be the first year when England and India will play as many as nine Tests against each other.
While toss before the first Test of any five-match Test series holds utmost importance but this one will be keenly followed by fans around the globe for both England and India are yet to announce their respective Playing XIs.
Readers must note that England and India will be taking the field without some key players (due to various reasons) namely Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer, Shubman Gill and Mayank Agarwal.

Morning from the Bridge. Beautiful morning it is, too. Some talk that Pope hasn’t made it through training and Bairstow could return. pic.twitter.com/2Ll8gmkKpo

If the weather forecast for Day 1 on AccuWeather is to be believed, the first two sessions will largely be played under a cloud cover with almost negligible probability of rain.
However, it is only during the last hour of the day that the rain probability jumps from 18% to 47% at Trent Bridge. According to the forecast, the “mostly cloudy” weather will transform into “showers” at 06:00 PM (local time), which is also the scheduled time for stumps.
If the weather prediction holds true, there might be a case of teams not able to use the extra 30 minutes to complete 90 overs on the first day of the series.
