New Delhi:

If an image upload by New Zealand opener Martin Guptill is an indication to go by, clouds and wet conditions may return to put the second T20 against hosts India on Tuesday, in jeopardy. This after the first match was called off in Vizag due to heavy rains.

Guptill on Monday evening, posted this image on his Twitter page. "Ominous clouds at training......" he wrote on the micro-blogging site. While weather predictions suggest cloudy conditions over Chennai, rain has not been predicted till later in the week. (Edit: A report by Indo-Asian News Service has said that the official prediction from the weatherman is of heavy rain lashing the city in the coming 24 hours from Monday evening)

Both teams have been looking to have a crack at one another. This especially with the World T20 tournament scheduled to take place in Sri Lanka from September 18. Although there are warm-up matches scheduled to be played, players like Kyle Mills have already suggested that playing an international T20 before the World Cup will be extremely important to fine-tune preparations.

Tuesday's T20 will also give fans another chance to catch Yuvraj Singh - making his comeback to the national side after battling cancer - live ahead of the series in Sri Lanka.
