DHARAMSALA (IANS) — The first T20I between India and South Africa that was to be played here at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association stadium on Sept. 15 was abandoned without a ball played due to rain.

Intermittent rains throughout the day coupled with puddles of water on the covers meant that even the coin toss could not take place.

The three-match series now moves to Mohali where the second T20I will be played on Sept. 18. The match is scheduled for a 7 p.m. (IST) start.
