Rain forced the start of the day, South Africa vs India match was originally scheduled to begin at 1 PM IST in order to make up for lost time the day before, to be pushed back to 1.55 PM IST.
The moderate drizzle at the Centurion venue caused the second day of the South Africa vs India 2nd Test to be postponed.
Rain forced the start of the day, which was originally scheduled to begin at 1 PM IST in order to make up for lost time the day before, to be pushed back to 1.55 PM IST.
AccuWeather predicts that rain will likely stop the match as the day goes on, with a 13% risk of thunderstorms in the evening and a likelihood of showers in the afternoon.
Wet spots on the outfield delayed the start of the game on Tuesday as well, according to South African media reports. Additionally, the throw, scheduled for 1 pm IST, was rescheduled.
Additionally, the first day’s activities had to conclude an hour early due to poor lighting. Prior to that, Kagiso Rabada easily defeated India’s batting order, with KL Rahul serving as his only opponent.
With just 59 overs bowled, the batsman helped the visitors reach 208/8 at stumps. Rahul, who batted first at number six, was undefeated at seventy off 105 deliveries on a day when none of the other Indian batsmen could muster forty runs.
On the first two days of the Boxing Day Test, there was a significant risk of rain, according to Brain Bloy, the curator for the wicket. He had predicted frigid weather for the Test, saying, “I don’t know what conditions will be like, whether we will get play on Day 1.”
“The prognosis for Days 1 and 2 is displayed to you. It’s not very appealing. There will be some purchases for spinners and offer turn and bounce because the sun will be out for four days. However, Bloy told PTI on Saturday that she wasn’t sure how accurate the weather forecast would be because there would be a lot of rain.
