Dharamshala: First T20 match between Indian and South Africa was abandoned in Dharamsala due to heavy rain. There was no ball played in the match and even the toss did not take place. Both the team share points in the three-match T20I series.
In Dharamshala, it started raining continuously from one o'clock on Sunday afternoon which did not stop and only after this decision was taken. After this match is canceled, there are two more matches to be played between the two countries. The second match will now be played in Mohali on 18 September while the third match is to be played in Bengaluru on 22 September. Hopefully, the weather will not be a dampener next time.
India will now have to win both their matches against South Africa to capture the T20 series. A match was played between India and South Africa at this ground in Dharamsala in 2015, in which Team India had to face defeat. In this match Rohit Sharma batted brilliantly and scored a century. Team India had a full chance to avenge the defeat in that match. But the Indian team led by Virat Kohli missed it due to rain.
