With unseasonably damp conditions across the country throughout June so far, it’s fair to say the the Cricket World Cup 2019 has faced its share of weather-related woes.

Two matches have already been rained off in Bristol – but what are the conditions looking like for tomorrow’s clash at Edgbaston, Birmingham, between New Zealand and South Africa?

According to the Met Office, the morning is likely to look a little precarious – with rain falling between 4am and 10am.

However, by the time the match starts at 10.30am the worst of the rain is likely to have passed, with a 50 per cent chance of precipitation at 10am and 30 percent at 11am – down from 60 per cent earlier in the day.

 

Between 12pm and 3pm there will be light cloud over the cricket ground, with just 20 per cent chance, and by 4pm it looks as though the sun will come out, bringing a welcome break to the overcast conditions.

By 4pm the chance of rain will have shrunken to 10 per cent, and from 5pm afterwards it looks as though we’ll be almost clear of any chance of rain at all.

The temperature in Birmingham will peak at 17 degrees Celsius at 6pm, with the mercury hovering somewhere between 14 and 16 degrees Celsius for much of the day.

There is a yellow weather warning for thunderstorms across the east of England and the midlands, however looking at the localised forecast it seems unlikely that the match will be blighted by stormy skies.

If the downpours do set in, umpires can choose to reduce the overs batted by each team, as long as both sides bat for 20 overs.

As part of the tournament’s rules, spectators will be entitled to a full refund of their ticket price (excluding fees) if the match is 15 overs or less and 50 per cent back if there are between 15.1 and 29.5 overs played.
