Weather factors in India/West Indies ODI

Weather factors in India/West Indies ODI

Powerful Cyclone Helen, which has already caused seven deaths and widespread damage, has put Sunday’s second One-Day International between West Indies and India in serious doubt.

The weather system made landfall Friday morning along the east-central coastline, bringing with it heavy downpours and wind gusts of up to 60 to 80 miles per hour, felling trees and causing widespread power outages throughout the state of Andhra Pradesh.

Thousands were evacuated from the coastline prior to the cyclone’s arrival.

While the heavy rain is expected to subside as the system moves further inland, localised downpours are expected to continue.

Persistent rain on Friday meant that the scheduled practice sessions for both teams on Saturday, the day before the match, were cancelled.
