According to the Cyclone Warning Centre, widespread heavy rainfall is predicted in south as well as north coastal districts and Visakhpatnam district has been experiencing heavy rains since Wednesday night.
Cricket fans hope it will not rain too heavily during the next two or three days and the match will go on unhindered.
Though the the Y S Rajasekhara Reddy Stadium has super soppers and other drainage facilities, it may prove to be inadequate if it rains too heavily.
Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma hit sparkling half-centuries as a clinical India continued their domination over West Indies by thrashing the visitors by six wickets in the opening ODI of the three-match series on Thursday.
Asked to bowl, spin duo of Ravindra Jadeja and Suresh Raina exploited the low and slow conditions of the Nehru Stadium wicket effectively to bundle out West Indies for a meagre 211 in 48.5 overs.
Kohli then smashed 86 off 84 balls, while Rohit made 72 off 81 balls to help India chased down the target with consummate ease in 35.2 overs and take a 1-0 lead in the series.
