Ind vs Aus, Brisbane ODI: Rain to make late appearance

January 15, 2016 12:30 PM |

Brisbane ODI WeatherThe second ODI between India and Australia is scheduled to be played at the Gabba in Brisbane on January 15, Friday. Brisbane ODI is expected to start at 8:50 am IST. Weather forecast for Brisbane ODI points towards chances of rain at night.

Despite registering a record highest total against Australia in Australia, Dhoni’s men failed to secure a win at the WACA. After a comfortable and convincing win against the visitors at Perth, Australia will be looking to gain another early advantage in the 5-match series when they play India at Brisbane.

Weather during the Brisbane ODI is expected to remain sunny till late in the afternoon. Partly cloudy conditions are likely in the evening, and there is a good chance of some light rain at night, around 9 to 10 pm. As only light rain is expected at night, it is not likely to affect the outcome of the game.

Maximum temperature at Brisbane will be in the higher 20s and minimums are expected to settle in the lower 20s. Humidity levels will be around 40% during daytime, but will escalate to the 80s later in the day. Moderate winds of about 15 to 25 kmph will continue to blow over the region. To sum it up, fairly good weather conditions will prevail at Brisbane on Friday.

Coming back to the game, spin may take a backseat in the Indian camp after an unimpressive performance at Perth. It won't be wise to remove Ashwin just yet. However, Jaddu is likely to be replaced by all-rounder Rishi Dhawan, who can bowl pace. In addition to this, doubts surround Dhawan’s consistency with the bat, but considering his overseas performances he will make the cut again. Also, after Barinder Sran’s more than impressive debut, along with exposed weaknesses in India's spin department, Gurkeerat Singh may have to wait for a while before he can be a part of the Playing XI.

Australia will look to replace David Warner (on paternity leave) with the in-form opening sensation Usman Khwaja. Mitch Marsh has also been rested for the second game and Kane Richardson is likely to replace him. Apart from this, the Aussies look confident and strong on paper. Both teams will be tested in the bowling department at Brisbane after batsmen called the shots during the first game.
