India will resume matchday two at 246/8 against Leicestershire©Twitter
The four-day tour match between India and Leicestershire kicked off on Thursday. At Day 1 strains, India’s score was 246/8 with KS Bharat (70*) and Mohammed Shami (18*) in the pocket. Rain interrupted play three times on the first day and it was because of the rain that the first stumps had to be called. On Day 2 there may be some downtime as showers are also expected in Leicester on Friday.
According to Accuweather, there is a chance of showers at 11am UK time, and that’s around the time Day 2 is due to start. Cloud cover at that time is expected to be 70% while 0.2mm of rain may fall.
For the next two hours cloud cover is expected to remain and again at 2pm UK time there is a chance of showers with 0.5mm of precipitation expected. Cloud cover should remain at 70%.
Then, from 3pm to 6pm UK time, there is less chance of rain and the weather should remain pleasant.
Bharat will look to reminisce about the well-deserved century on day two of the current four-day game against Leicestershire. It was Bharat who was the bright spot with the bat for India after the first order fell cheap and there was no resistance.
Virat Kohli made a well-done 33, but it was dropped to a dodgy call from the field. Skipper Rohit Sharma made 25 while Shubman Gill scored 21.
Walker took the wickets of Rohit Sharma, Hanuma Vihari, Ravindra Jadeja, Virat Kohli and Shardul Thakur.
After this tour match, India will play England at Edgbaston, Birmingham from July 1.
