The Indian team is eager to level in the T20 series against Australia. After the defeat in the first match in Mohali, Team India has this opportunity in the second match of the series in Nagpur, but whether it will happen or not, it is not in the hands of Team India at the moment. Reason: Wet ground. The rain in Nagpur for two-three days has made the Vidarbha Cricket Association ground so wet that even after the rain has stopped, it is not completely dry and the toss of the match has been postponed for about two hours.

This match to be held in Nagpur was under the shadow of continuous rain and the same was seen. Both the teams could not practice a day ago due to rain and now even after a day its effect is visible. The weather was clear in Nagpur during the day but the ground could not dry up completely. Due to this the toss was continuously postponed.

Toss not done on time

The Board of Control for Cricket in India gave an update at 6.30 that the toss would be delayed. The toss was to be held at 6.30 only. The board told that the umpire will inspect at 7 o’clock and then take a decision. After checking at 7 o’clock the umpires again decided to wait for an hour and now the inspection will be done at 8 o’clock. It is clear from this that the condition of the ground is not good and the start of the match will be delayed even more.

When and how many overs match?

Now the biggest question is that if the match starts, will it be of full 20 overs? As of now, no information has been given about it officially. According to the rules, any T20 match should be of at least 5-5 overs and if that is not possible then the match will be called off. For this, the match will probably have to start by around 10.30.

Normally, in rain-affected matches, efforts are made to complete it by adding about an hour extra, but the situation in Nagpur does not seem in its favor either. In such a situation, it is certain that there will be no match for the entire 20-20 overs and some overs will be cut.
