The match between India and Sri Lanka was called off shortly after the heavy rain outpour.
Guwahati got to host international cricket this time. However, disappointment came to the fans who exerted their best efforts to see the India vs. Sri Lanka match.
After India won the toss and decided to bowl first, the rain started to pour down heavily again, causing delay to the start of the game. It had already been raining the whole afternoon but it definitely got worse after the toss.
The downpour may have lasted for half an hour but the damage that had been done was enough to disrupt the game. With only the square and the bowler’s run-ups covered up, the ground staff worked so hard to make the ground dry once more. All best efforts were done for almost two hours after the rain had stopped.
Even with the help of steam irons and hairdryers, repeated inspections had confirmed that the game can no longer push through. With that, the match had been dismissed shortly before 10 in the evening.
The game will be rescheduled on the 7th of January 2020 to make up for the delay in the game. The odds of the game for India is -416.67 while Sri Lanka has +330. For more updates about this match, head over to Betwala’s site and be informed on the latest happenings.
