The 1st T20 match is to be played between India and South Africa on 15 September at Dharamsala ground.
The first match of the T20 series between India and South Africa will be played in Dharamsala, Himachal Pradesh on Sunday. In this stadium built in beautiful plains, not only the fans but the players are also very excited about the match. An international match is to be played at this stadium after 2 years, but bad news has come out before the match. Actually, the rain could disrupt the first T20 match.
Rain could play spoilsport in 1st T20
The meteorological department has predicted that rain could disrupt the first T20 match between India and South Africa. The Meteorological Department believes that there will be rain for two days before the match and it may continue even on the third day, as the rain is often in the mountains for a long time. Due to this prediction, Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association has asked the fielders to be ready to face all the challenges.
Fast bowlers can get help in 1st T20 match
If the match happens after the weather department has predicted, then the pitch here will help the fast bowlers a lot. The visiting team for the first T20 match had arrived here about a week earlier. The Indian team will arrive here a day before the match. According to sources, of course, this helps the fast bowlers on the ground, but if the cover remains covered on the pitch for a long time and there is no sunlight on it, then the fast bowlers will get more chances of getting it. If this happens and the match can start then the bowlers may dominate in this match.
India Probable Playing XI
Rohit, Dhawan, KL Rahul, Kohli (Captain), Manish Pandey, Pant (WK), Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Khaleel , Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini.
