India vs South Africa

The first two matches of the recently concluded three-match T20 series between India and South Africa were disrupted by rain. Due to this, while the first match was abandoned without any ball being bowled, South Africa won the second match as per Duckworth-Lewis rules. Now the first match of the three-match ODI series between the two teams will be played on December 17 at the New Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg. There are chances of rain in this match also, which may cause disruption in the match.

This percentage of rain is expected

Talking about the weather during the first ODI match of the series to be played in Johannesburg, according to the report of Accuweather, there is only 2 to 5 percent chance of rain in the match. Even if it happens, it will happen only for some time. Apart from this, there is a possibility of clear sky throughout the time. In such a situation, the team winning the toss can decide to bowl first, so that it can make its strategy in this game according to the target to be achieved as per Duckworth Lewis rules. The maximum temperature during the match is expected to be 28 degrees, while it may reach 20 degrees in the evening. This match will start at 1:30 pm Indian time.

South Africa had the best record on this ground

So far, the dominance of the batsmen has been seen at the Wanderers Stadium, where more than 400 runs have been scored thrice. At the same time, South Africa has had a very good record on this ground in the ODI format, in which they have won 30 out of 40 matches played here. In contrast, the Indian team has managed to win only once in an ODI match at the Wanderers Stadium.
