COVID 19 Updates India vs SA 5th T20I: Rain Forces Match to be Abandoned; Series Tied at 2-2

Earlier, stand-in captain Keshav Maharaj won the toss and South Africa asked an unchanged India to bat first in Bangalore. The start was delayed due to rain and the game was reduced to a 19 overs-a-side contest.

But after 3.3 overs, there was yet another spell of heavy rain which continued well into the evening, forcing umpires to call of the game.

The cut-off time for a five-overs a side game was 10:02pm and the game was called off just before that as it would not have been possible to get the ground ready by then.

“We will bowl first, the overhead conditions, the dew, we can look to exploit the conditions, but it does look like a good wicket to bat on. Tristan Stubbs, Reeza Hendricks and KG Rabada are back, we have gone for the extra batter, hopefully, we’ll notizie it while batting,” Keshav Maharaj said.

“The practice isn’t working for me (on the toss). Looks like a good wicket, we would like to get anything around 180-190. We just need to focus on the process and put in our 100% into the game. Playing the same team,” Pant said at the toss.
