The first One-Day International between the Standard Bank Proteas and India was abandoned without a ball being bowled following persistent rain all day at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamshala.


The two teams now move on to the second match to be played in Lucknow on Sunday. The final game is at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata next Wednesday.
