Multan Cricket Stadium Weather Forecast: The SportsRush brings the weather forecast for the Third PAK vs WI ODI to you.
During the third ODI of the ongoing West Indies-Pakistan tour in Multan, bizarre weather conditions reduced the length of the contest to 48 overs per side.
So, after multiple delays, Pakistani striker Khushdil Shah and spinner Shadab Khan resumed innings to set up a 50-run partnership at the sixth wicket. With over 10 overs remaining, it behooves these two to steer Pakistan to a respectable tally in this dead rubber.
Pakistani captain Babar Azam (1) winning the draw and opting to beat not only saw his team struggling, but the 27-year-old himself recorded a rare tally in the ODIs.

It was just after the 33rd that the players returned to their respective dressing rooms due to a dust storm at Multan Cricket Stadium. In what is a common occurrence during the summer season in Multan due to the presence of sand dunes in nearby areas, this kept players away from players for some time.
Even when referees and players sought to resume play twice, things did not materialize due to repeated rounds of dust storms. Typically, such a dust storm is usually followed by a brief period of rain.

Although the same didn’t happen in Multan tonight, the possibility of the same shouldn’t hamper the game much when it comes to losing more overs. Instead, a passing downpour will reduce the temperature in the city.
In an effort to counter the dust, some players are seen using a face mask while playing in the middle.
