Johannesburg:The first One-day international between South Africa and India today was unable to get underway on time due to rain. As the rain still playing a hide and seek game, the chances of getting a match at Wanderers are becoming slim.
The cut off for time to begin a 20 overs-per-side match is 20:15 (11:45 IST) local time and the groundsmen need an hour to make the preparations. The umpires will wait till 19:15(10:45 IST) local time before calling off the game.
Light rain began falling over the Wanderers ground half-an-hour before the scheduled start.
