IND vs SL: It was a heartbreak for all the cricket fans as the first T20I between India and Sri Lanka was abandoned due to rain in Guwahati. This wasn’t the way the New Year should have started for team India.
Now the two teams will move into the second game which will be played at the Holkar Stadium in Indore with the series still poised at 0-0. The rain in Guwahati wasn’t heavy but the pitch was dampened due to which the start of the game wasn’t possible even with the toss taking place prior to the showers.
