The current third Test between India and England has not gone according to Virat Kohli’s expectations. India won the toss and elected to bat first in difficult batting conditions, fresh off a spectacular victory at Lord’s. In the first innings, the bold move backfired, as the visitors were bowled out for 78 runs. In response, Joe Root hit another century to lead England to a massive 432-run total, giving the hosts a 354-run lead.
With India facing a near-impossible job of surviving for more than two days, only a miracle with the bat or rain at Headingley can salvage this Test for them. The weather in England has always been interesting, with rain saving Joe Root’s side on the final day of the first Test.
On Day 3, Friday, before the start of India’s second innings at Headingley, there was some drizzle. With no rain for the first two days, Indian fans began to fear that the weather might force the match to a tie. The outlook for Day 4 and 5 at Leeds, with two days left in the Test, is as follows:
At Headingley, the forecast for the fourth day is bleak
The weather forecast for Day 4 at Headingley seems promising, promising a wonderful Test cricket day. Despite the fact that it will be partly cloudy throughout, rain is unlikely, and we can expect the full quota of 90 overs to be bowled on Friday.
At Headingley, the forecast for the fifth day is bleak
With the way things are shaping up, it’s possible that the match will not even make it to Day 5. However, if rain is required, the outlook for the Test’s last day is likewise favourable, with very little probability of rain. It’ll be a little cloudier than Saturday, with pacers expecting to get a little more help.
