Weather report in Pallekele Sri Lanka
Whenever there is a game in Sri Lanka during the monsoon season, the threat of the rain is always there. The same is the case in the first ODI match between Sri Lanka and Australia at the Pallekele Stadium in Pallekele. There are overcast conditions and dark clouds are easily visible.
According to Accuweather, there is a 20% chance of rain throughout the innings of the match. The humidity is going to be very high i.e. around 89%, and it will be very difficult for the players to play in such an environment. High humidity means there is a chance of rain as well throughout the second innings.
The temperature will range from around 23 degrees to 25 degrees Celcius, so the main hurdle will be the humidity for the players. With overcast conditions, there will no dew in the ground, so this is good news for the Sri Lankan team. The spinners are getting some assistance due to the heavy environment.
