IND vs SA 5th T20I Live Updates: Rain getting persistent

 
Seems like the rain is getting heavier with time and it is going to get difficult with each passing minute of rain for groundstaff to work their magic and try and make the field available for play as soon as possible. At this rate, the match is going to get shortened without any doubt.

IND vs SA 5th T20I Live Updates: Rain stops play, India are 28/2 in 3.3 Overs

 
Lungi Ngidi is into the attack 
 
Ball 1 Gaikwad runs down the ground and plays this over the infield for two runs 
 
Ball 2  Wicket!! In the air…and gone!! The change of pace from Ngidi has doen the trick once again as Gaikwad, trying to hit the ball over mid-on, gets his handle turned in his hand and the ball goes only as far as Pretorious at mid-on 
 
Ball 3 On the pads and worked away by India skipper Rishabh Pant for a single to open his account 
 
And it has started to rain again and the covers are coming on. It is not raining heavily, so hopefully, we will have a game at our hands, sooner than later. But for now, the players have been asked to move back to dugouts and the ground is being covered entirely.

IND vs SA 5th T20I Live Updates: Bengaluru weather may play spoilsport

 
For the first time in this entire series, the players will get a rebate from heat as Bengaluru is going to be heavenly in comparison to the weather that the South Africans have had to face so far. However, there are great chances of rainfall and it might be a shortened match after all as the weather forecast predicts a heavy shower at 07:00 pm.
 
So even if the super soppers do their magic and the pitch is dried, the 99% cloud cover means that it will take at least 08:30 for the game to begin and therefore a shortened match will be in the offing.
