However, the weather is proving to be a challenge. On the fourth day of the Test in Manchester, persistent rain allowed only 30 overs, during which Australia managed to reduce their deficit from 162 to a more manageable 61. Unfortunately, the forecast predicts more showers for the majority of the fifth day, posing a threat to England’s aspirations and possibly leading to a draw.

Broad, who is renowned for his dedication and commitment to the sport, voiced his concerns in his column for the Daily Mail. He feels it would be a major disappointment if the rain interferes with the match, especially considering England’s commendable performance so far in the series.
