rain, India

India and South Africa are prepared for their opening T20I fight at Dharamsala but the rain can hinder the competition. The forecasting department has predicted to rain on Wednesday (11th September) while the match will start from Sunday (15th September). The first T20I is at Dharamshala and the second T20I is at Mohali.

It is been recorded that rain has mostly interrupted in all the ongoing matches in the cricket world. The ground team responsible for rain management had to work hard for halting the rain to wet the field. They will have to work day and night to manage the field, a source said.

“The thing with the place is that once it starts raining, it goes on for a couple of days. The team is doing its job, but the problem is that you need at least around six or seven days leading into the game where the weather is perfect to prepare the wicket and with forecast for rain leading into the game on Sunday, sleepless nights are on the cards,” the source explained.

The ground will favour the fast bowler as they could take wickets easily, the source said. Whereas the Indian team has given rest to fast bowlers Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah.

“See, the conditions here anyway hand the faster bowlers a slight edge. But yes, if covers are on for long periods of time and the wicket doesn’t get enough sunlight, it will definitely slant more towards the faster bowlers. That could then lead to a situation where the ball dominates the bat.”

South Africa bowler Kagiso Rabada and Junior Dala can put Indian batsman in the problem. But if we talk about South Africa batting unit, it is an almost inexperienced unit. Faf du Plessis, Hasim Amla and Imran Tahir‘s absence will be the loss for the team.
