Earlier, the two umpires, KN Ananthapadmanabhan and Nitin Menon along with fourth umpire Anil Chaudhary inspected the ground.
The start of the match at the Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) Stadium at Jamtha in Nagpur was delayed because of a wet outfield due to heavy rains in the last couple of days.
The match was officially scheduled to start at 7 pm with the toss set to be conducted at 6.30 pm.
The ground staff has been working on the wet patches near the boundary line since the afternoon, running the light roller. They have been seen sprinkling sawdust on some of the patches.
Orange City has experienced some heavy spells of rain in the last few days.
Though it has not rained since Thursday morning and the sun was out in short durations on Friday, the outfield has not dried completely.
