Rain forces RCB vs SRH match abandoned
Bengaluru, 4/26
The IPL match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and
Royal Challengers Bangalore was on Tuesday
called off without a ball being bowled as
incessant rain made the ground unplayable.
Both the sides got one point each from the
abandoned match at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Heavy rain lashed the city in the evening but
stopped an hour before the start of the
match. It seemed for a while that the match
would go ahead as scheduled and RCB players
have even started warming up on the ground.
But, it began drizzling just before the
scheduled toss time and it continued non-
stop. Later, rain intensified and forced the
abandonment of the match. There was no toss
at all.
Puddles of water were seen at several areas
of the ground and frenetic efforts of the
groundstaff went in vain as rain finally
played the spoilsport.
Though the cut-off time for a five-over
shootout match was 11.26pm, the umpires
called off the match at around 11pm.
With the one point from the abandoned match,
RCB jumped to sixth spot with five points
from eight matches while SRH remained at
third position with nine points from eight
games.
SRH had won the first-leg match between the
two sides, the tournament’s inaugural match,
by 35 runs in Hyderabad.
RCB, under India captain Virat Kohli, were
looking to come out of the embarrassing
batting debacle when they were all out for
just 49 in their match against Kolkata Knight
Riders at the Eden Gardens on Sunday but they
will have to wait longer to do so.
SRH, on the other hand, would have wanted to
notch up their first away win this season.
They have lost all their three matches away
from home before Tuesday.

Rain forces RCB vs SRH match abandoned

Bengaluru, 4/26

The IPL match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and

Royal Challengers Bangalore was on Tuesday

called off without a ball being bowled as

incessant rain made the ground unplayable.

Both the sides got one point each from the

abandoned match at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Heavy rain lashed the city in the evening but

stopped an hour before the start of the

match. It seemed for a while that the match

would go ahead as scheduled and RCB players

have even started warming up on the ground.

But, it began drizzling just before the

scheduled toss time and it continued non-

stop. Later, rain intensified and forced the

abandonment of the match. There was no toss

at all.

Puddles of water were seen at several areas

of the ground and frenetic efforts of the

groundstaff went in vain as rain finally

played the spoilsport.

Though the cut-off time for a five-over

shootout match was 11.26pm, the umpires

called off the match at around 11pm.

With the one point from the abandoned match,

RCB jumped to sixth spot with five points

from eight matches while SRH remained at

third position with nine points from eight

games.

SRH had won the first-leg match between the

two sides, the tournament’s inaugural match,

by 35 runs in Hyderabad.

RCB, under India captain Virat Kohli, were

looking to come out of the embarrassing

batting debacle when they were all out for

just 49 in their match against Kolkata Knight

Riders at the Eden Gardens on Sunday but they

will have to wait longer to do so.

SRH, on the other hand, would have wanted to

notch up their first away win this season.

They have lost all their three matches away

from home before Tuesday.
