With the World T20 approaching later this year, India missed out a great opportunity to fine-tune their combinations ahead of the big tournament when the first T20I at Guwahati was washed out without a ball being bowled due to rain and a damp pitch on Sunday. The Virat Kohli-led outfit will now take on Sri Lanka in the second T20I at the Holkar stadium in Indore and all eyes would be on the weather as to what it has in store.
