The Indian team faces the Kiwis at Trent Bridge on Thursday.

Reports claim that heavy rainfall is expected in Nottingham until Wednesday evening and could subside by afternoon on Thursday.

So there is still a possibility of a curtailed encounter.

According to a report in Nottingham Post, rainfall is expected through out this week in that area.

The Met office has issued a warning

The Met office issued a warning on its website that 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.

Washed out

Two matches have already been washed out

So far, two matches have been washed out by rain.

Pakistan and Sri Lanka saw their match getting abandoned due to constant rain and damp outfield.

The match was supposed to take place in Bristol.

South Africa and the West Indies then saw their match at Rose Bowl in Southampton get washed out as well.

Only 45 balls of cricket was possible.

Bangladesh and Sri Lanka's affair at Bristol yet to start

The other day, Afghanistan and New Zealand saw their game start later than the usual time. Although, they were lucky that a match took place. Today, the match between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka at Bristol hasn't yet started. The umpires are currently inspecting the conditions.
