That means the second match of the India-Africa T-20 series will start at 8.30 pm Indian time. In such a situation, this match can go on till 12 or 1 am, provided all 40 overs are played.
How will the weather be in the second T20?

According to accuweather.com, the chances of rain in Gqeberha on December 12 are up to 80 percent. Among these, the chances of rain are highest during the time when the match is to be held. This means that the second match of Team India can also be washed out due to rain.
