The English Summer often brings with itself quite a lot of unpredictable weather in months of July and August. The cricket fans have been left quite frustrated with the persistent rainfall that has been impacting the matches. While the WTC final between India and New Zealand turned out to be a rain-affected match in Southampton, the third ODI between England and Sri Lanka had to be abandoned due to rain in Bristol.
With the rain gods not in mood of stopping, a footage from 'Home of Cricket' got viral on social media recently. The iconic Lord's Cricket Ground has been flooded with water due to a huge rain storm that struck the city on Monday evening. In the video, it can be seen that one half of the ground has literally turned into a river.

Upcoming matches in Lord's
The home of cricket is presently scheduled to host its next match on July 16 where Middlesex and Kent are slated to lock horns in Vitality Blast clash. Considering the forecast is better for the next couple of days, the ground staff will be confident to get the picturesque venue ready for the T20 match.
The fans would hope that the thunder, lightning and storm would have not caused any damage to the venue as a few matches of 'The Hundred' will be played at Lord's in the coming days before it hosts the second Test between England and India, scheduled to begin on August 12 onwards.
