In cricket, the second T20 International of the three-match series between India and Sri Lanka will be played at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore at 7 PM today. The first T20 match was called off without a ball being bowled due to wet outfield, caused by a spell of heavy rain in Guwahati on January 5th.
However, there is no rain threat for today’s match in Indore. Indian spearhead Jasprit Bumrah and opener Shikhar Dhawan will be under spotlight as both return to the fold from their injuries. Jasprit Bumrah had suffered a stress fracture, while Shikhar Dhawan was dogged by injuries throughout 2019.
All India Radio will broadcast live commentary on the match alternately in Hindi and English. It can be heard on FM Rainbow and additional frequencies from 6.30 PM.
Meanwhile, the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA) has been spraying a special chemical on the outfield at the Holkar Stadium to counter the effects of dew. The grass on the ground is also not being watered for the last three days to minimise the effects of dew.
The third and final game is scheduled to be held in Pune on the 10th of this month.
