Bangalore Test officially called off
Rain has ruined the Bengaluru Test, the 100th Test of AB de Villiers.
Day 5 has been called off without a ball being bowled. It wasn’t torrential downpours, but just enough rain to keep everyone indoors.
The high water table content here didn’t help the cause one bit either. After having dominated day 1, the hosts were well set to take pole position, but it was as good as it got. Not a ball was bowled from day 2 onwards, leading to a drab draw. India lead the 4-Test series 1-0 with the third Test to be played in Nagpur from the 25th.
There’s no Man of the Match for the one-day Test in Bengaluru and that ends the post-match presentation.
India will take the positives, South Africa will be happy with the end result and the sun is peeping out, for the first time in several days in Bengaluru.
It has been frustrating to bring you rain updates and nothing else for the last four days. Hopefully, things will change in Nagpur. The third Test starts on 25th. Do join us for all the action. Until then, it’s cheers and bye..
