The continuous and heavy rainfall on Sunday prevented the two captains from even stepping into the center for the toss. Regrettably, the disappointed spectators, who had gathered in large numbers for the match were forced to leave the ground in a disappointing manner.
Weather Report – India vs South Africa, 2nd T20I
As per weather.com, Gqeberha can witness 60% showers on Tuesday and it may happen that the rain disturbs the second game as well. But, the only good sign is that the chances of rain in the morning are higher than in the evening. The match will start at 5 PM according to the South African time and drizzle between 30 to 10% is anticipated in the evening.
In the event of rain at the venue on Tuesday, it will be intriguing to observe whether the ground staff can successfully cover the entire ground. Indian legendary batter Sunil Gavaskar has criticized the South Africa Cricket Team for less number of covers.
During a discussion on Star Sports, Sunil Gavaskar expressed criticism toward Cricket South Africa (CSA) for their insufficient provision of covers, which failed to adequately protect the entire ground.
