Weather at Edgbaston Cricket Ground: The SportsRush presents for you the detailed weather prediction for the second ENG vs NZ Test.
During the first day of the second Test of the ongoing New Zealand’s tour of England in Birmingham, England have started cautiously after captain Joe Root won the toss and chose to bat.
Opening batsmen Rory Burns and Dom Sibley, who had received some criticism for their defensive approach while chasing a 273-run target on the fifth day of the first Test, sort of began from where they’d left off at the Lord’s.
Facing a new new-ball pair of Trent Boult and Matt Henry, Burns and Sibley backed their strong defense as England have crossed the 50-run mark without losing a wicket in the first session.
The ongoing match will primarily be remembered for veteran England pacer James Anderson becoming the most capped English player after going past former captain Sir Alastair Cook (161).

It is worth mentioning that there isn’t any significant prediction of rain on Day 1 of the second match. According to BBC, the weather in Birmingham will continue to range between sunny and cloudy with a moderate breeze.
As far as the second day of the Test match is concerned, BBC predicts that the cloud cover and breeze will increase on Friday. Having said that, the probability of rain will continue to be in single digits. Therefore, there are minimal chances of rain playing spoilsport in the first two days of the Edgbaston Test.
