Rain disturbed the match twice. After the toss for the first time, when both the teams landed on the field, only then did the rain come and due to this, the players had to return. Due to this, the start of the match got delayed. The match started with a delay of about 50 minutes. For this reason, the match was reduced to 19 overs per innings. After the start of the match, only 3.3 overs could be played. Then the rain came. It rained continuously and when the umpires felt that the conditions were no longer playable, the decision was taken to cancel the match.
