After three matches of the five-match T20I series between India and South Africa are done and dusted, the action now moves to Rajkot for the 4th T20I. The two teams will lock horns at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium on Friday to see if South Africa take an unassailable lead or if India level the series. It is expected to be an interesting battle with both teams going full-throttle at each other.
However, there are a few concerns ahead of the big match on Friday (Rajkot). As, after days of scorching heat, the rain gods have finally shown some mercy and monsoon has arrived in some parts of India, there remains a worry about the game being washed out. The scenes at the SCA Stadium on the day before the match day (i.e. on Thursday) were not too pleasing from the cricket fans’ perspective. The whole ground at the stadium was seen in covers, with persistent rain in the city.
This sent a wave of worry among the fans and players as it can lead to a no-result game which is unacceptable for both teams as well as the fans. But the real question is, will rain play a spoilsport in the 4th T20I between India and South Africa in Rajkot? To answer this, let’s look at the weather forecast for the day.
Weather forecast for 17 June in Rajkot
As it can be seen from the Rajkot weather forecast from weather.com, there are really less chances of rain on the given day. It is 24% for day time and comes down to 19% during the night. This means that there is not going to be heavy rain on 17 June in Rajkot which eventually means the 4th T20I between India and South Africa can be played without any interruption. Even if there is a little interruption, the game is expected to have a result.
