The opening T20I between India and Sri Lanka in Guwahati turned out to be a damp squib affair as the match was abandoned without a ball being bowled. During repeated interruptions at the Barsapara Stadium on January 5, Indian captain Virat Kohli was seen inspecting the pitch. An image of Kohli doing the same was posted by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on their official Twitter handle.
