Pitch Report & Weather Report
If we talk about the weather at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground, brief showers are expected in the middle of the match. As per the weather report, there are 50% chances of rain in Manchester.
One the other hand, the pitch is likely to assist batsmen of either team because last match between India & Pakistan showed the same.
