India vs Australia, Cricket World Cup 2023: Hourly weather update for Chennai | spcilvly

India and Australia will lock horns in a much-awaited World Cup match at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Sunday. This will be the 150th ODI meeting between the two cricketing powerhouses. The two teams have won a combined seven World Cup titles (Australia 1987, 1999, 2003, 2007, 2015; India 1983, 2011). According to head coach Rahul Dravid, Indian batsman Shubman Gill is suffering from dengue and could miss the match. Gill is India’s leading scorer in ODIs in 2023 and also scored 104 against Australia last month as India took an unbeatable lead in a three-match series.

While Gill’s availability remains a big topic of discussion, a lot of attention will also be paid to the weather in Chennai. India’s scheduled warm-up matches against England and Netherlands were canceled due to rain.

According to Accuweather, rain is unlikely to occur in Chennai on Sunday. However, the conditions may not be suitable for players as the humidity percentage could rise as high as 82.
