Match called off due to rain!
The first T20I of the three-match series between India and South Africa was abandoned due to rain in Dharamsala. Incessant rain continued throughout as even the toss was not able to take place between the two teams. The non-stop pouring eventually forced officials to call off the match at around 19:50 IST. The second match of the series will take place at Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali on September 18.
The rains continue and the match has officially been called off. See you in Chandigarh for the 2nd T20I #INDvSA https://t.co/BjZ9Y7QAf2
