More Rain Forecasted

Johannesburg 53% rain for the ENG vs NZ match

 

Daryl Tuffey has been ruled out of the match because of a broken hand. Jacob Oram is still out, Jesse Ryder is out after he suffered a groin injury.


Team manager Dave Currie told Radio Live here from South Africa that Tuffey suffered his injury while fielding."He broke a bone in the back of his hand. He needs to get back to New Zealand now to have surgery,"


Tuffey will be replaced by Ian Butler who is available for selection again after being down with a stomach illness.Meanwhile, batsman Aaron Redmond who was rushed to South Africa to replace Ryder is unlikely to be considered for the match as flight delays mean he will only arrive a few hours before the game begins. New Zealand need to win this match to qualify for semi's.

what are the rain prediction percentages for other games ?

anyhow they moved the tournament out of sri lanka as they were not sure about the weather and moved it to SA where the weather looks threatening now!

they should have shifted it to Australia ( when did they last host an ICC event 1992?? )

That explains a lot. I was following the live score on the internet and wondered why England were have so much difficulty (apart from the obvious being useless)
