India vs West Indies: Minor Chances of Rain in Chennai During First ODI

When India take on West Indies in Chennai in the first ODI on Sunday, they will do so with a minor chance of rain looming large over the competition. It has been overcast this past week in the South Indian coastal city, and that might just culminate in rain on Sunday.

However, the chances of precipitation are only at 5%, which means that largely, play should go on as usual. Should the weather become a factor, the D/L method is expected to come into play. With moisture in the air, the fast bowlers can be expected to take an early advantage of proceedings, but largely, it will be spinners dictating things out in the centre with the Chennai pitch always traditionally favouring the tweakers.

The chance of rain also means that the side winning the toss would be inclined towards batting and putting on a big total on the board, which they can then use to put scoreboard pressure in the second innings in the event of rain.

There will be no significant changes in temperature, with the highest expected to go up to 29 degrees and the lowest to 24 degrees, typically coastal weather.
