India vs New Zealand, The Rose Bowl Pitch Report and Weather Forecast:
Just the usual visuals from the English surface. Both the teams will play on a green top pitch. The Pacers are going to get enough assistance to deceive the batters throughout the game. If Sun comes out in the Rose Bowl the surface will become a lot easier to bat on, however, if it’s overcast the pacers will come in force.
The weather forecast for all five days will be a talking point. Heavy rainfall is expected on the first two days of the play. On June 18 and 19 a thunderstorm is expected with 80 per cent chances of rain. Light showers are expected throughout the five days of play.
