Prior to Day 2, the forecast of Brisbane showed rain. Heavy clouds had hovered over the Gabba at the stroke of tea. This promoted the groundstaff to employ covers in order to protect the pitch. "They're expecting a hailstorm," said Harsha Bhogle on air.
As per reports, plenty of water has gathered all along the ground. However, the rain has stopped all of a sudden, which means the groundstaff will be on the job. While the covers have come off, the umpires will have an inspection soon.
