Rain Forecast for Cricket Decider

Friday, October 13th, 2017

Warner, Smith and Maxwell are usually the names with Australia’s T20 fortunes in their hands, but Duckworth, Lewis and Stern are again set to make their presence felt in India.

With rain forecast for today’s series-decider in Hyderabad, the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern system, which has been applied in two Australian defeats during the limited-overs tour, could be decisive in the final match.

After persistent periods of rain in the lead-up to today’s match, the outfield at Rajiv Ghandi International Cricket Stadium is soft and muddy.

Three pedestal fans propped up by plastic chairs were aimed at a particularly wet patch on Thursday, in an unorthodox attempt to make the ground match-ready.

David Warner will again lead Australia in the absence of Steve Smith, while Glenn Maxwell needs a form reversal to put his destructive stamp on the match.
