India and Sri Lanka will be locking horns for a T20I on Wednesday evening in Colombo. Earlier the hosts were whitewashed by Team India in both Test and ODI by a 3-0 and 5-0 margin respectively.
Looking at the weather conditions at the R Premadasa Stadium, it seems that the only T20I will be washed out. The whole tour of India was one-sided except the second ODI when the hosts showed some competition with Akila Dananjaya picked up a 6-wicket haul and tumbled the Indian batting line-up.
On Tuesday, the weather forecast said that the game might not take place. Well, the news seems to be coming true as it has been raining relentlessly in Colombo from yesterday. Even the skipper might not come down for the toss India’s dream of clean sweeping the tour will leave unfulfilled.
The drainage system at the R Premadasa Stadium is pretty good so if the rain stops early and then are certain chances of the match taking place. But for that to happen, the rainstorm needs to take a full-stop, the possibilities of which look grim for now.
Here is how the ground looks like hours before the scheduled start of play:
