Match marred by rain, even toss could not be done due to incessant rain

IND vs NZ, 1st T20: The first match of the three-match T20 series between India and New Zealand has been rained off. Expectations of rain disruption in this match to be held at Wellington Stadium had already been expressed and in fact it happened. Despite waiting for almost two hours, the umpires could not even get the toss done and in the end they had to decide to call off the match. Now both the teams will go to Bay Oval for the second match where the match is to be played on November 20.

It started raining before the toss

It started raining even before the toss of the match and due to this the update of the delay in the toss was given. In the beginning the rain was slow, but gradually it intensified and then the waiting time kept on increasing. After almost an hour had passed, the panic of the fans started increasing, but no relief news came from the weather side. Match could not be started. 

The evil eye of rain on the second match as well

Despite the cancellation of the first match, the difficulties of both the teams have not ended. In fact, good rain is also expected in the second match to be held at Bay Oval. In the match to be held on Sunday, rain can come once again to spoil the fun. According to the Meteorological Department, good rain is also expected in Bay Oval on Sunday. The way Wellington was surrounded by clouds and it rained before the start of the match, something similar can be seen in Bay Oval.
