India vs Bangladesh (IND vs BAN) Second T20I Report, Rajkot Weather Report: Ahmed's Met Center is on an orange alert level ahead of the night game, with heavy rains predicted.
India vs. Bangladesh 2nd T20I, Rajkot Gujarat Weather Forecast: Although India and Bangladesh are due to close centuries in the second T20I clash at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot on Thursday, it is likely that weather conditions still cloud the hopes of Rohit Sharma & Co.
According to the Indian Meteorological Department, the severe cyclone Maha, currently on the Arabian Sea, is very likely to cross the Gujarat coast around Dio on Thursday afternoon. The Met centre in Ahmedabad has put an orange alert on Rajkot ahead of the night game, with "strong" rain forecast.
However, there is some hope when the latest update from the India Meteorological Department (IMD) indicated that the cyclone is expected to weaken.
However, its latest update on Wednesday indicated that the hurricane was over the Arabian Sea, about 390 km west of Porbandar, and was expected to bordering the coast of Saurashtra around noon on November 7.
Although the stadium can be prepared within an hour, as long as the rain stops before the game starts, it has not yet been an optimistic sight. With heavy rains accompanied by strong winds that hit the SCA stadium on Wednesday evening, the field saw large formations of water. The field and surrounding area were covered with multiple layers of fabric.
Along with the rain, precipitation is very likely in the races in the second T20I, because the SCA field is devoid of grass. But with the possibility of precipitation, the park can become slow, making access to the border harder.
The stadium looks good. Rajkot has always been a good course of beatings and also assists the shooters. It will be a good launch. "I am sure it will be better than what I saw in Delhi," Rohit Sharma said as he toured the field on Wednesday.
If the game fades, or if India doesn't win, it means they won't win a series at home for the second time in a row. Also, it is reported that the new head of BCCI Sourav Ganguly will be present for the party.
