Rain Threat Looms Large Over India-New Zealand Tie in Nottingham
Heavy rain threatens to play spoilsport when India face New Zealand in their next World Cup game at Trent Bridge on Thursday.
There have been persistent showers across United Kingdom for the past two days and the local Met department has issued a warning for the residents.
The Met office's warning on its website covered a large area of England, including Birmingham, Peterborough and Newcastle.
“There is a chance that heavy prolonged rain could lead to localised flooding and disruption to transport,” it said.
"That lighter rain is expected to finally come to an end at about lunch time on Thursday. The maximum temperatures will be around 13 degree Celsius and minimum overnight temperatures will be around 10 or 11 degree Celsius," the website reported.
