While both teams will be working out strategies for the big clash, players will also keep a close eye on the clouds as the forecast for the day is not very satisfying and rain is expected to halt the play. According to the British Met department, the skies are likely to remain cloudy throughout the day. The maximum temperature in Manchester is expected to be around 20 degrees.
According to BBC, “The week ahead is going to be quite changeable and many of us at one point or another will be getting some rainfall. The weather is already going downhill in the very far northeast of the Atlantic".
However, if rain occurs throughout the day and no play is possible there is a reserve day and if the same happens even next day and play gets washed out then India will be through the finals because they finished higher in the Points Table in group stage.
While Indian team will be benefitted by the rains, the fans all over the world would be expecting no rain occurs and they get to see a tight contest.
