Gabba weather watch

Recommended Posts

Weather forecast looks fine. Most of the rain late night or early morning. Maybe we'll lose an hour or two on D2 and 2/3rds of D4. Days 1, 3, 5 perfectly fine. With make up overs, we can easily see 375-400 overs of action which is generally more than enough to force result at Gabba. 

 

GABBA WEATHER

 

 

 

Posted the above in match thread. Anyway thought we can have a dedicated thread to keep track of weather, since with our depleted squad we'll need all the help we can get at Australia's fortress.

 

Our fellow ICFer @Soldier lives in Brisbane (you going to the ground bro?). So perhaps he can give first-hand info/updates about weather conditions.

Today is cloudy. Tomorrow sunny

During the course of the test. 3 days light showers. So game should be on.

Don't trust third party websites. Even Google sometimes has major lapses in weather report. Check the following link. Tomorrow looks fine. Saturday onwards there is rain expected. Main thing to be noted here is that it's La Nina year in Southern Hemisphere which brings more rain and in Queensland rainy season starts January onwards. So expect this match to be draw unless one team puts up a really bad show.

Mostly sunny morning. Medium (50%) chance of showers, most likely in the afternoon and evening. The chance of a thunderstorm in the afternoon and evening, possibly severe. Winds northerly 15 to 20 km/h becoming light before dawn then becoming east to southeasterly 15 to 20 km/h in the middle of the day.

important thing to note. We had rains in sydney and the total overs played was 425. In a normal test without rain with 4 innings we get 440 overs. So just 15 overs overall was lost in sydney. But weather looked ok on the govt website. Now in the govt website the Brisbane weather looks iffy. So can safely say at least one days play ie 90 overs will be lost on total. Unless india craps up we shd get a draw

 

 

 

 

And this from 3rd party website 

 

day 4

 

Current predictions suggest Monday 14th will have the most precipitation with an accumulation of around 28.0mm. On the whole winds are likely to be moderate.

they are smelling blood in the water. without bumrah and ashwin, they will be batting with much more intent. They were the only bowlers to stop smith in this series and even fielding abilities will go down with jadeja gone and shaw back

we'll see. Aus are favorites but at 6-1 odds India is a screaming buy.

I doubt Australia can beat India, with or without Bumrah. They will get a very stiff resistance from India and the Aussies will wilt under pressure. Just like they did in the last match.

 

People are forgetting that even in the last match we could have won if Pant or Pujara stayed atleast 10 more overs and Vihari was not injured.

 

Granted Australia declared, but still that will be in the back of Australian think tank's minds. They will not again risk giving 400 odd target (if time permits). Obviously if day3/4/5 are heavily rain affected, they might declare early hoping for a result (We only need a draw to retain the trophy) and it may just play into our hands.

 

All and all, that 4th innings resistance might have changed the course of the series as Australia will always have doubts about a perfect declaration.

We should look to save the test series now. So, go with seven batsman and four bowlers IMO.

Problem is with an already depleted bowling attack if one of them breaks down Aussies will have to bat only once. That easily negates the time advantage of whatever our extra batsman can give us.

@SoldierDo you expect Heavy Showers on any of the days as Heavy rain could spoil half day or even full day.

if yes then which day do you expect heavy showers ?

I am worried that they prepped a green mamba now that Bumrah is not playing. If it's normal Gabba road, I'm fairly confident our top order will click and manage a draw.

Exactly thats why they havent said whether Bumrah will play or not. Keeps them

guessing. On a green mamba Bumrah if fit Siraj Saini will be handful now that they know which lengths to ball..
