A snake was discovered at the Barsapara Stadium on Sunday as India prepared to play South Africa in the second T20I of their three-match series in Guwahati. After the seventh over, the incident happened, and the grounds crew removed the snake off the field, much to KL Rahul’s pleasure and hilarious expression. The toss has been won by the guests, who have chosen to bowl.
This occurrence is among the strangest ones that have ever ended a match. There have also been other odd occurrences in the past. In Napier, New Zealand, in 2019, the game between India and New Zealand’s Test team was suspended owing to too much sunshine. Additionally, in 2017, a match for the Ranji Trophy in Delhi was halted as an automobile circled the field. A test match between South Africa and Bangladesh also came to an odd halt around lunchtime because the caterers assigned to serve food for the visitors’ arrival were late.
With KL Rahul (47) and Rohit Sharma (42) batting, the hosts had reached 94/0 after nine overs. Rohit, the captain, answered, “Yes,” before the game (would have fielded as well). I simply want to show up, play some excellent cricket, and amuse the fans. We have never defeated (in terms of a series win) these players here, so it will require a lot of work from everyone to achieve that. Nevertheless, we have prepared well and are basically game-ready.
“Uncertain about the future weather conditions.” There was some stickiness on the field when I touched it, so we should exercise some caution first. It will be difficult right away, despite our strong batting order. We are competing as one unit. “
Wednesday’s first T20I was won by the hosts by an eight-wicket margin. India quickly reached 110 for two in 16.4 overs while chasing a target of 107 because to KL Rahul’s unbroken innings of 51 runs off 56 balls. Suryakumar Yadav hit an unbroken 50 runs off 33 balls in the meantime.
At first, Keshav Maharaj’s innings of 41 runs off 35 balls assisted South Africa in reaching 106 for eight in 20 overs. In great form, Arshdeep Singh grabbed three wickets.. Deepak Chahar and Harshal Patel both claimed two wickets in the meantime.
