Weather report of Trent Bridge: The SportsRush presents for you the detailed weather prediction for the second day of ENG vs IND Test.
During the second day of the first Test of the ongoing India’s tour of England in Nottingham, India have made a mess of a 97-run opening partnership by losing as many as four wickets within 37 balls.
It was right before the lunch break that India opening batsman Rohit Sharma (36) had pulled an Ollie Robinson delivery to England all-rounder Sam Curran at fine leg to gift his wicket once again in an overseas Test match.
After lunch, veteran England pacer James Anderson sent back Cheteshwar Pujara (4) and Virat Kohli (0) on successive deliveries to strengthen England’s hold on the match. Vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane (5) became a victim of a mix-up to make matters worse for the visitors.
Still trailing by 58 runs in the first innings, India would want to not just reach in vicinity of the English total but also gain a lead to not give away the advantage. Having said that, with Lokesh Rahul and Rishabh Pant batting in middle, play has been suspended due to bad light for now.

While the play was first stopped due to bad light, readers must note that rain has also started to pour down to further extend the interruption. As is usually the case in England, rain has started to make its presence felt on the second day of the series.
Much like Day 1, a yellow warning for thunderstorm still remains in Nottingham. According to AccuWeather’s weather forecast, rain is expected to play spoilsport throughout the remainder of the second day of this Test match.
Being England fan must be tricky. You need cloud cover but not too much😅 #ENGvIND

The rain probability for the next three hours is likely to be in between the range of 47% – 61%. Therefore, it wouldn’t be a surprise if a lot of overs are wasted in the second and third session on Day 2.
