After spoiling the momentum of both the cricket squads in the very first T20I clash of the three-match series rain gods are finally going to bring some smile on the faces. The weather forecast for the second T20I at the Punjab Cricket Association is expected to be a good one. There are very few chances of rain interrupting the play at Mohali. The temperature will hover between 24 degree Celsius to 33 degree Celsius and the humidity level is predicted to be 68% during the match.
