Ashes 2nd Test: What is the weather forecast at Lord’s today and what happens if it is a washout?


ENGLAND suffered a humiliating defeat to Australia in the opening Test of this year’s Ashes series.

They had hoped to get off to a good start at Lord’s in the second game – but rain has interfered with play.

Rain saw the first day of play at Lord’s called off

What is the weather forecast at Lord’s today?

Day One of the second Test on Wednesday was eventually called off with the rain and miserable weather not letting up for the England and Australia cricketers.

But Thursday should see some play with mostly sunny spells and sunshine throughout the day.

Temperatures are set to reach up to 22 degrees celsius, while the good news is that the chance of rains is a maximum of 10%.

What happens if the game is a washout?

With one day already used up, it is highly unlikely the full game will be played out.

Rain is expected to fall during the remainder of the week, leaving victory for either side uncertain.

This would mean the game will be jotted down as a draw.

It would keep Australia 1-0 up in the series with three matches to go – with the Aussies then needing just one more win to ensure they retain the urn.

This is due to them being the reigning champions, who keep hold of the bragging rights if the series is a draw.
