Aus vs NZ Weather Report | High Chance of Rain Expected: The weather could play a big role in determining the outcome of Australia’s first match against New Zealand.
With an 80% chance of rain, Australia gets its title defence against New Zealand on Saturday evening. According to current forecasts, the Bureau has issued an alert for possible showers that could occur throughout the day and into night hours–most likely in either afternoon or evening sessions according to current forecasts (90%).
The umbrellas are coming! The DLS sheets will be handy, too, so you don’t get caught unprepared when there is more than just some drizzle happening outside your doorstep. The game has no reserve days, so five overs are required for a match. The semi-final and final have two extra starters to make up the numbers!

Aus vs NZ Weather Report | High Chance of Rain Expected: The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup will be launched in front of a crowd at the prestigious Sydney Cricket Ground. The opening fixture has been declared a sellout, and all fans are looking forward to watching some high-quality cricketing action live.

In September, the Bureau of Meteorology said that this year’s La Niña event may not last all summer, but that would still not be great news for this T20 World Cup.
“At the moment, this La Niña isn’t looking particularly strong and it’s looking like it will peak probably fairly early in the summer or late in the spring,” Andrew Watkins, head of long-range forecasting, told the ABC. “Which is a little bit unusual, a little bit different to the La Niñas that we’ve been seeing in recent years.”
