Manchester Weather Forecast, England vs Pakistan 1st Test Day 1

Pakistan lock horns with England in the first Test at Old Trafford, Manchester on Wednesday. After a brilliant comeback in the Test series versus West Indies to win the series, England would like to continue the same form when they take on Pakistan – who will look to start well in a fresh series. Both sides have quality pacers and that would be something to watch out for.

Unlike the West Indies, Pakistan looks a stronger unit and would like to give the in-form hosts a run for their money.

It promises to be a mouthwatering clash, but the question is – will the heavens permit that?

WEATHER FORECAST

According to Accuweather, there is the possibility of a couple of showers, but as the day progresses, it would get sunny and allow cricket to take place.

If the showers do not get too heavy, we would see a full 90 overs, otherwise, it could be a shortened day of cricket something fans would not hope for.
