The first T20I between India and Sri Lanka was called off without a ball being bowled after rains lashed the city of Guwahati. Now trying not to repeat the same in Indore, a special chemical is used to blunt dew impact at Holkar Stadium.

Since the match will begin at 7 pm, the dew could be a factor in deciding the outcome, especially in the second half of the match.

According to a report in PTI, Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA) chief curator Samander Singh Chauhan said that since the last three days, a special chemical was being sprayed over the ground to beat the effects of dew.

He also added that the grass on the ground was not being watered since the last three days to minimise the effects of dew. 

“We sincerely hope the spectators will get to see fours and sixes raining in the match,” he said.

Fans are eagerly awaiting the second match as the opener was abandoned due to wet patches on the track. No rains are expected in Indore on the match day.

The final match of the series will be played in Pune on January 10.

The weather for this match is said to be good. The two sides will witness a cool climate for the temperature expected to be around 17 degrees Celsius with humidity at 74 per cent, according to Accuweather.
