That brings us to the end of our live coverage. Sadly no play was possible but we hope this isn't the case when these two teams face-off in the 2nd T20I at Chandigarh on September 18. Join us again for all the live updates from that game which starts at 7 PM IST. Till then it's goodbye!
The rain gods reserved their worst for the match evening. The most it’s rained in the three days I’ve been here. 70 percent of the ground was covered but it never really stopped raining.. No chance of play #IndvSA pic.twitter.com/E8kKDHKJ7f— Jatin Sapru (@jatinsapru) September 15, 2019
Match Abandoned: The official word is out and the 1st T20I between India and South Africa has been abandoned due to rains. The wait continues for all fans waiting to see the Man in Blue in action again.
The fans inside the stadium aren't letting their spirits be dampened by this horrible weather. Meanwhile here's a quick read on what Team India's former batting coach thinks about Rohit Sharma as the team's latest choice to open the batting. Click here for the story.
Dharamsala Weather Update: Well if you were one of those optimistic fans awaiting some good news, then sadly the wait continues. The fans inside the stadium still seem to be in buoyant spirits making plenty of noise but the rains haven't slowed down yet. Not at all good as the outfield will need some time to dry even if the rains do decide to somehow make a sudden disappearance.
