Weather in Manchester tomorrow: The SportsRush presents for you the detailed weather prediction for the third ENG vs WI Test.
England have received a bit of a jolt in the development that all-rounder Ben Stokes is unlikely to bowl in the third Test of the ongoing West Indies’ tour of England starting from tomorrow at the Old Trafford.
Stokes’ prowess and sheer dominance with the bat in the second Test is more than enough for him to retain his place in the side. However, the likely non-availability of the bowler in him has it in it to affect the hosts who are spoiled for options regarding their fast bowlers for this match.
Talking about the opposition, all West Indies require is a draw to retain the Wisden Trophy. Not letting complacency seep in, captain Jason Holder’s men would be well-aware of the fact that a series victory in a historic Test series such as this would mean wonders for their overall red-ball cricket.
Having played the same fast bowlers in both the matches, West Indies might be thinking of making a change (or two) considering the lack of recovery time in between matches on this tour.
Weather in Manchester tomorrow
Having played spoilsport in both the matches so far, rain is expected to yet again disrupt the players in Manchester. The only difference this time is that the delay might be longer than the first two matches.
While the first day (tomorrow) of the Test is expected to be pleasant and warm, it is the second day (Saturday) whose the forecast is mostly cloudy with showers (69%). Similarly, the third (Sunday) and fourth day (Monday) of the Test might also witness showers in parts.

As far as Day 5 (Tuesday) is concerned, the climate will be changed to warm and pleasant. Given how the series has produced results despite rain interruptions, the same can be a possibility in this match provided scattered showers on Day 3 and 4 don’t harm the match significantly.
