Weather Report: There is a forecast of intermittent rain throughout the match. Cloudy conditions and high humidity levels (over 80%) are expected, which could influence the game significantly.

Toss Prediction: Given the morning start and potential moisture in the pitch, both captains might prefer to field first to exploit the early conditions.
