Mumbai: India will be looking to wrap the series 2-0 against South Africa, but the rains aim to put a halt to India’s plan by interfering in the match. With the match set to begin today, the weather forecast for the third and final T20I match doesn’t look so great.

As per the AccuWeather report, there is a 30-40 per cent chance that it will rain in Bangalore, and that would mean, there could be some interruptions during the match.

 

Moreover, the rains will also affect the nature of the pitch. Generally, Bangalore’s M Chinnaswamy stadium is best suited for the batsman, but, due to rains, the toss winning captain might prefer to bowl first as the rain would make the batting easy towards the end. So, the toss winning captain might elect to bowl first.

Rains forced the match T20I to be abandoned without a bowl being bowled. While, ahead of the second ODI Proteas skipper Quinton De Kock stated that it is not ideal if matches get washed out as there are only a few games in the preparation for 2020 T20 World Cup next year in Australia.

"Obviously it is a bit of negative. We would have liked to play at Dharamshala. We would like to play as many matches heading into the 20-20 World Cup next year so losing out on one game is not ideal. But it is what it is. It is now a two-match series. It would be an exciting format so we will see how things go," de Kock stated.
