The second T20I in the India vs. South Africa series will be played in the Far East after the conclusion of the Thiruvananthapuram sessions. In what will be the venue’s third international match, Guwahati’s Barsapara will host the second T20I. The prospect for rain, though, raises the possibility that cricket won’t return to Assam.
Guwahati T20 Weather Prediction: India will want to end the series once and for all when they take the field in Guwahati after securing a convincing victory in the first T20I in Trivandrum. The first game of the series for India went ahead without a hitch, but the second game could be affected by the weather.
Humidity and temperatures around the late 20 degree Celsius range are predicted for Guwahati. There will be a lot of clouds throughout the game, and there is a 20% chance of rain.
India will be hoping that a similar occurrence does not occur after recent rain forced them to play eight overs each side in their T20 match against Australia.
IND versus SA pitch report for the Guwahati T20 match
Despite having several shorter than average boundaries, Guwahati isn’t one of the domestic cricket venues with the greatest scoring rates. The Men in Blue were knocked out for 122 in India’s lone innings here, with Jason Behrendorff taking 4 wickets for Australia. The visitors in turn comfortably pursue the total.
The cloudy weather should make it easier for the bowlers on both teams to get the new ball to move. In the first game, Deepak Chahar and Arshdeep Singh destroyed South Africa, and the side batting first may have a similarly rocky start.
India: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Ashwin, Arshdeep, Harshal Patel, Deepak Chahar
South Africa: Quinton de Kock, Temba Bavuma, Rossouw, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Tristian Stubbs, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Shamsi, Anrich Nortje
