Internet Desk: Virat Kohli & his team arrived in Cape Town today afternoon to play the third ODI match of the series against South Africa. The Indian team is welcomed to a severe drought condition in and around Cape Town. A chronic drought has left the city without water and it is assumed within weeks the situation will hurt the tourism industry and also the economy.

With experts predicting Cape Town will run out of water in mid-April, residents have been told to limit usage to 50 liters per person per day. An average bath holds 80 liters of water. The situation was a little better when the Indians were here for the test match.

Hotels have asked guests not to use baths and to limit showers to two minutes or less, while some restaurants are switching to disposable cups and ditching table linen.

There is no official data available yet to quantify the impact water shortages are having on numbers but J. P Duminy said there had already been cancellations.

The local citizens are using borehole waters. According to local citizen Judith Gordon, who has been living in Claremont for the last 30 years has never witnessed such a situation.

The Western Province Cricket Council has suspended all club and school fixtures for the remainder of the 2017/2018 season after a meeting with members council and relevant stakeholders on Thursday.

More than 100 representatives decided unanimously that club and school cricket fixtures should be canceled in the best interest of the people of the Cape Peninsula, which is experiencing one of the most devastating droughts of the past century.
The local school students are disappointed as they are not being able to play cricket.The City implemented Level 6B water restrictions effective from 1st February. No water or irrigation with municipal drinking water is allowed. This includes no watering and irrigation of gardens, vegetables, agricultural crops, sports fields, golf courses and other open spaces. Borehole or well-point water should rather be used for toilet flushing.

The curator of the Newlands Stadium Evan Flint seems to be the most worried looking man. Flint is not allowed to water the outfield regularly. Only the wicket is being watered with the help of borehole water.
