The Indian national cricket team's first match of 2020 was a wash-out. Damp patches on the 22-yard strip at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati after a spell of shower saw first T20 International between India and Sri Lanka get called off without a ball being bowled on Sunday.

But the 35000-strong crowd at Barsapara Cricket Stadium, which was hosting only its second T20I match, entertained themselves with a mass singalong while waiting for news of pitch inspections before a final decision was announced shortly before 10 pm local time.
