Overview:The fifth T20I between India and South Africa on Friday was called off due to rain at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
Both teams shared the trophy
India and South Africa shared the honours in the T20I series after the deciding fifth and final match in Bengaluru was abandoned due to rain. The Proteas won the first two matches before India bounced back to level the series at 2-2. They send the series to an effective final on Sunday.
Called off because of the rain
Rain forced the players off the field just as play was set to start at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium and South Africa fast bowler Lungi Ngidi dismissed the hosts’ opening batsmen to reduce India to 28-2 after the restart. But it started pouring again with only 3.3 overs bowled and no more play was possible.
Therefore, the T20I between India and South Africa was forced to the end, remaining 2-0 draw.
