Manchester Weather Forecast, England vs Pakistan 2nd T20I

So far, every match of Pakistan’s ongoing tour of England has seen rain interruption. Unfortunately, only the first Test produced a result despite an entire day of play being lost due to inclement weather. The second and third Test were also affected by rain and so was the first T20I on Friday which had to be abandoned midway.

Pakistan opted to field and got an early breakthrough when Jonny Bairstow was dismissed in the very first over by spinner Imad Wasim. England came back strongly with Tom Banton hitting a maiden international fifty before four quick wickets resulted in Pakistan taking control.

With England 131/6 in 16.1 overs, rain arrived and resulted in the contest to be called off.

The second and third match of the series will also be played at the same venue. Teams are unlikely to make any changes unless Pakistan decide to bring back Wahab Riaz in place of Haris Rauf who leaked 32 runs in his three overs.

WEATHER FORECAST

As per weather.com, it’s mostly going to be a cloudy day in Manchester with rain expected to stay away. Fingers crossed.
