Weather Conditions on the day of Ireland vs England ICC T20 World Cup 2022 and Pitch Report Predictions
Melbourne is set to have an outcast on the day of the match. Little rain is expected but there is a chance of the match getting hindered by a downpour. Else, serene Mediterranean weather will assist the viewers.
The Melbourne Cricket Ground has always been a batsman-friendly ground. With a history of teams scoring moderately high scores, this ground is also favorable for pacers. The bounciness of the pitch increases with time and the ball lifts more.
