UPDATE - 9.55 PM LOCAL (1625 GMT) - THE MATCH HAS BEEN CALLED OFF. Sad news for the fans. But that rain shower really put everyone off. It was raining since afternoon and in spite of the game being scheduled in the evening, with clear skies before the toss, the return of rain caused disturbances. And that improper covering made things worse. So this now becomes a 2-match series with the second T20I scheduled on Tuesday, 7th January 2020 at 7 pm local (1330 GMT). See ya!

UPDATE - 9.30 PM LOCAL (1600 GMT) - The pitch inspection is done. No official news though. The umpires don't see too happy.

UPDATE - 9 PM LOCAL (1530 GMT) - The covers are off but we are still not starting. Because the pitch has not been dried out completely. The groundstaff has tried out the hair dryer, then an iron and now a heavy roller. Virat Kohli was not happy at all. The umpires are now at the pitch and inspecting. The next and possibly, the final inspection is at 9.30 PM LOCAL (1600 GMT).

UPDATE - 8 PM LOCAL (1430 GMT) - The next inspection has been pushed down to 9 pm local. There is some water on the pitch, don't know how, in spite of the covers. There are some patches developing and the covers are being brought back on. We are now looking at a shortened game. In fact, it has STARTED TO DRIZZLE AGAIN.

UPDATE - 7.50 PM LOCAL (1420 GMT) - Great news! The rain has stopped and the covers are almost off the pitch. Just the one covering is there, which should not see much delay in the game starting.

Okay before we could start the first game of the decade for India and Sri Lanka, rain wants to have some say in the game. It's drizzling right now and the covers are firmly on the pitch. Can be just a passing shower. Or, let's hope so. Well, it is not just a drizzle. It is raining heavily right now. So, seems like we are in for a delayed start.

Sri Lanka (Playing XI) - Danushka Gunathilaka, Avishka Fernando, Kusal Perera (WK), Oshada Fernando, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Dhananjaya de Silva, Dasun Shanaka, Isuru Udana, Wanindu Hasaranga, Lahiru Kumara, Lasith Malinga (C).

INDIA (Playing XI) - Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli (C), Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (WK), Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Navdeep Saini, Jasprit Bumrah.
