Day 1 of the first Test match between India and South Africa, scheduled for December 26 (Tuesday) at Centurion is anticipated to be affected by rain, according to a report by PTI.

Anticipating heavy rain, it is likely that Day 1 of the first Test between India and South Africa at Centurion will be significantly affected. Bryan Bloy, the curator of SuperSport Park, has expressed a pessimistic view, stating that it seems highly unlikely any play will occur on the first day due to the inclement weather. There’s a strong possibility that all three sessions on the opening day may face being washed out.

According to Accuweather, there is a 96 percent chance of rain in Centurion on the opening day of IND vs SA 1st Test match.

Curator of SuperSport Park Bryan Bloy expressed concerns about the weather conditions, stating, “Temperature will be super low, like 20 degrees. The temperature is now 34 and it will drop to 20. I don’t know what conditions will be like, whether we will get play on Day 1,” as reported by PTI.

Curator Bloy also mentioned that batting first will be a challenging task due to the overcast conditions prevailing at Centurion.

“I can’t guarantee the forecast but if it remains under cover for the better part of the two days then that might be tricky to bat first, because its been covered for so long and hasn’t been rolled for so long, we don’t know how long we will have to get the field ready for play in current situation. So if it’s a Day-3, 10 am start, it doesn’t give us much time, because it’s in the morning and you start playing at 10 and really three hours of cool weather and early morning will be tricky. If its covered for two days, I would presume bowlers would benefit from it,” Bloy told PTI.
