Tag Ireland cricket
I read some news flowing above/under the earth that India Vs South Africa cricket series in Ireland, known as Future Cup, will be badly effected by rain. That is also one of the reason why the organizers (read BCCI) failed to find a famous sponsor..
I said to myself - this doesn't sound correct. Cricket season in England have just started to peak up, & Belfast in Ireland is very next to London. This is the first time Ireland will host an International cricket series, so Rain God might interrupt, will interrupt, but result should be reached specially these days when twenty20 overs a side are played. Following my instinct, I did shuffled the Internet a little, and came out with three sites or blogs which will give you a better information on what weather is expected for 2nd India Vs South Africa ODI, or the 3rd in Stormont cricket ground in Belfast city Ireland. Looking at them today, weather looks typical English weather with loads of clouds, but plenty of blue skys later in the day..
You start with Sky news Weather, which gives short but enough information on how weather is right now in Ireland. Its very possible that you're waiting for a delayed start of an India - southafrica match, but hoping against hope for weather to get better. Try this in that case..
Land onto this blog, which covers all weather in and around Ireland. I couldn't find the specific Belfast weather forcast on this web resource, but details here are very nice. This is an Irish meteorological service, so expect the very inside view.
Accu weather is another such blog, & tells the current weather condition in whole of Ireland & England. But if none of above satisfy you, get to wundergound.com & type the city. Its the leading weather resource, and even on Friday (day for 2nd ODI), you'll get the forecast for 3rd ODI at the same stadium in same city in Ireland.
I hope this much of information will give you enough hints that will some of Future Cup matches will be washed out or how many overs will be played.. my guess, we'll get around 35-40 overs per side per match.
