The second day of the first Test between India and South Africa was completely washed out due to rain. It rained intermittently. The field never dried up completely. The day’s play had to be called off without a ball being bowled. Now in such a situation, the fans want to see the whole game on the third day. In such a situation, let us tell you how the weather will be in Centurion today. What is the weather forecast saying? Is there a chance of rain today or will it be sunny during the match?
The weather will be pleasant in the morning
Whatever has passed is gone because a new day is a new beginning. There is news that the weather will be better in Centurion on Tuesday i.e. today. The weather will be humid, cold winds will also blow, but sunshine is also expected. According to Accuweather.com, initially the temperature is likely to be 27 degree Celsius. Even though the sky will be cloudy till noon, but there is no forecast of rain for the rest of the day.
The match will start on the scheduled time today
The third day’s play will start at its scheduled time and there will be an additional half hour of play in the third session. The plan was to make up for yesterday’s game today. Officials had expressed hope that today’s game will be 98 overs, but bad light can spoil the plan. Now the prediction is that rain can spoil the fun of the game even on the last day of the game. If the prediction is to be believed, then only two days of play will be possible in this test.
Team India had its first day
After the first day’s play, India’s score was 272 for three. KL Rahul was playing 122 off 248 balls and Ajinkya Rahane was playing 40 off 81 balls. Opener Mayank Agarwal was dismissed after scoring 60 runs. Captain Virat Kohli scored 35 runs in 94 balls. Angidi gave the hosts the first breakthrough by tumbling Agarwal. It seemed that the leg would not hit the stump but the on-field umpire had to change the decision after taking the DRS.
