Bangalore weather has been the talking point since yesterday as the city has been experiencing heavy rains since yesterday. Not just a drizzle, but heavy rains were expected.
Bangalore Weather Update
To make it worst, today it didn’t just rain, but there were huge hailstorms in Bangalore during the afternoon. There was a huge downpour around 3:30 PM and it was a heavy thunderstorm. However, the rains eased out around 4: 30 PM but it started pouring heavily right now. The Bangalore weather has always experienced unusual rains. But rains at such a crucial juncture of the tournament would definitely deflate the Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise.
When the coin toss takes place, Bengaluru weather should see generally cloudy skies and a couple of thunderstorms, according to AccuWeather. Most likely, the temperature will remain in the 21-degree range.
The game might start a little late or it might be completely rained out. If there is a washout, the points are split between the two teams, giving RCB a final score of 15. In that situation, Sunrisers Hyderabad‘s victory over the Mumbai Indians will determine whether they qualify or not. However, if MI wins the game, Rohit Sharma’s squad would advance to the playoffs.
At this moment, it looks very difficult to think that there would be a complete match. At worst, we might see a shortened game considering the intensity of the rain and the fickleness of Bangalore weather.
The Bangalore franchise now sits in fourth place in the IPL standings, but if the Faf du Plessis-led team struggles, things might get tricky. Notably, Mohammed Siraj has been outstanding with the ball while Faf and Virat Kohli are both in terrific form right now.
Regarding the defending champs, Shubman Gill is having a fantastic season and just scored an impressive century. There are many advantages for the team right now because Rashid Khan and Mohammed Shami have been outstanding with the ball. However, the squad will be looking for other players to get back into shape as well before Qualifier 1.
