Boxing Day Test Between South Africa and India Is Not Likely To Begin Today. The Complete Weather Report Is Here

Share

<p>The greatest obstacle for both sets of players as Rohit Sharma’s Indian squad prepares to play their opening game in the two-match Test series against South Africa in Centurion is the possibility of rain. The team’s ultimate goal is still to win the Test series in the Rainbow Nation, but there is a real chance that the first Test might end in a washout on the opening day. The unfavorable weather at Centurion’s Supersport Park dampens players’ and spectators’ expectations of seeing exciting Boxing Day Test cricket.</p>

<p>AccuWeather reports that there is still a 96% probability of rain throughout the day. Tuesday throughout the day is predicted to bring around four hours of rain in Centurion. Rain has been falling nonstop for the last several days, so the outfield isn’t in the greatest of shape either.</p>
<p>It is anticipated that the likelihood of rain will increase during the day. There is a 60% probability of rain in the evening, according to AccuWeather, which may have an impact on Centurion’s play on the following day.</p>
<p>In South Africa, with its cloudy weather, pacers will obviously be crucial to both teams’ success. Although he is optimistic that others will step up, India captain Rohit Sharma said on the eve of the match that Mohammed Shami would be a major absence for the squad.</p>
<p>“Our seamen have merited this admiration due to their exceptional performance in challenging situations abroad. They have performed well in South Africa, Australia, and England during the last five to seven years. We won the first Test last year even in South Africa, but we were close in the remaining two games. They have fulfilled our expectations and contributed their fair share. Shami’s expertise and the work he has done for our team over the years will be greatly missed. Although it won’t be simple, someone will step up to take his position, and we have great faith in the person chosen for the job,” Rohit said.</p>
<p>“Because seamers receive lateral movement and velocity, bowlers have a significant advantage here. As the game progresses, surface fissures develop and provide a consistent bounce. There are obstacles in every day life. The game becomes harder as it progresses. However, playing in challenging circumstances against the best teams is what you want to do in your career. We’ve had a good time getting ready for the series,” he said.</p>
<p>The second Test in the series may end in a one-match shootout between the two sides because of the likelihood of rain disrupting play in Centurion.</p>
