Weather Report of 2nd Week of the ICC ODI World Cup Matches 

During the 1st week of the ICC ODI World Cup, rain didn’t interrupt any matches. But in the second week, there’s a slight possibility of rain in Dharamshala, Delhi, and Ahmedabad during the matches. The organisers are engaged in ensuring the matches continue even if it rains, which is different from the Asia Cup. This change is determined by the competitive nature of the IPL.

As the second week of the tournament approaches, everyone is keeping an eye on the players and the weather forecast, hoping for an exciting and uninterrupted start to this much-anticipated event.

The unpredictable weather in the second week of the ICC ODI World Cup is a big challenge. Weather patterns, seasons, and local conditions make it hard to predict. Climate change makes it even more uncertain, even with advanced weather technology.

Cricket’s rain rules, like Duckworth-Lewis-Stern, help manage matches affected by rain but can also lead to debates. In the end, dealing with uncertain weather will be a big concern for organisers, teams, and fans, and they’ll need to be flexible and have backup plans.
