Rain washes out first T20I between India & Sri Lanka in Guwahati

The first T20 International between India and Sri Lanka was called off without a ball being bowled due to wet outfield, caused by a spell of heavy rain in Guwahati last night.

It started pouring 15 minutes before the scheduled time after India skipper won the toss and elected to bowl.

The rain spell lasted less than an hour but the ground could not be prepared in time. The umpires held several inspections but the damp patches on the pitch did not allow the match to start.

The second match of the three-match series will be played tomorrow in Indore, while the final game is scheduled to be held in Pune on the 10th of this month.
