Rain likely to be a bummer during the 2nd T20I between India and Australia


The second T20 match of the three T20I match series between India and Australia is scheduled in Nagpur. The second T20I game of the series will be played on September 23, with the last game scheduled for Sunday (September 25).

But for cricket fans and followers there is bad news as the weather is expected to be a bummer. It is believed that rain could interrupt the game and therefore India and Australia are not expected to be able to play the full 40 overs in the second T20I game of the series.

Rain is forecast for September 23 (Friday) and the chance of precipitation is 70 percent. The humidity is expected to be around 83 percent and the wind speed can be recorded at 16 km/h.
