Once Cottrell spotted this, here is how he reacted. “I’m looking into it for you. Thanks for your support. Would like to invite you to the game in Manchester if your not already attending? #salute (it’s a week day tho),” read his response.
With rain and the weather hogging the limelight, the forecast for India vs West Indies tie at Old Trafford will also hold a lot of significance. A couple of days ahead of the match, India’s practice session has suffered because of bad light and weather. But, the forecast for 27th June is of clear skies and no rain but nothing can be taken for granted. There is a 10 per cent chance of rain and that would come as music to fan’s ears.
India will start the game as overwhelming favourites against West Indies, but they will not be complacent.
