England vs Pakistan 2nd Test, Southampton Weather Forecast Today: After losing the opening encounter of the three-match series, Pakistan are aiming to settle scores in the second Test. However, the plans of the men in green took a major jolt as most part of the match has been wiped out either due to rain or bad light.

After hindering the proceedings of the contest on the first three days, rain continued to play spoilsport as the play was called off without a single delivery being bowled on day four. The weather looks to follow a similar pattern on Monday, which will the fifth and final day.

The weather report suggests overcast conditions, with hints of heavy downpour in Southampton on Monday. The temperature is expected to be around 21 degree Celsius.

The hosts currently have a 1-0 lead following their thrilling three-wicket win in the first Test in Manchester. Pakistan were in the driver’s seat for most part of the contest, but a brilliant batting show by Chris Woakes (84*) and Jos Buttler (75) helped England chase down the 277-run target with three wickets to spare.
