Rain threat looms over 3rd T20 International in T’puram

The preparations for the third and the final T20I between India and New Zealand to be played on Tuesday at Greenfield stadium in Thiruvananthapuram is complete, but according to the predictions of the meteorological department, there are chances of a few spells of rain or thundershowers.

However, Jayesh George, secretary of the Kerala Cricket Association, has said that the drainage system at the ICC and FIFA compliant stadium is excellent.

This is the first ever T20I to be played in Kerala and is being held at the Greenfield Stadium, which was the venue of the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2015 National Games.

The state capital will be hosting an international cricket match after a gap of almost three decades when the Vivian Richards led West Indies team played the last of the seven ODI matches against India on January 25, 1988, at the University Stadium.
