Stokes, Hales named in England ODI squad
BEN STOKES showed little sign he is ready to help save The Ashes for England in his second appearance playing in New Zealand. Selectors said in a statement that they had been advised to name their strongest squad , and picked the pair accordingly.
Wednesday's warning (in place from 6am to 11pm) predicts southerly winds of 50-65km/h with gusts of up 90-110km/h in coastal areas. It forecast minimum temperatures of between minus 2C and 2C.
The weather will take a turn in the next 24 hours, and it's set to become bitterly cold for the next few days.
Clear spells are forecast for Thursday night, with scattered rain, hail and snow showers, with accumulations of snow possible particularly in the north and northwest. "Motorists will need to slow down for their own safety, resulting in longer journey times, but you will also see more cars on the roads in affected areas", Elaine O'Sullivan, acting editor of AA Roadwatch stated. As a result, additional caution on routes used by cyclists and pedestrians will be needed.
