Rajasthan Royals v Mumbai Indians - Match abandoned without a ball bowled
Poor weather continued to dominate the early stages of the IPL as the match between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals was washed out without a ball being bowled. The opening game of the Tuesday double-header between Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab was decided on Duckworth-Lewis hardly ten overs into the chase and the spectators were denied any cricketing action since then. The rain was intermittent all evening and the umpires decided to call it off two and a half hours after the scheduled start. Both teams will now share a point.
Incidentally, this is the second IPL game to be washed out without a ball being bowled. The first was at the Feroz Shah Kotla between the hosts Delhi Daredevils and Kolkata last May.
