Chennai Super Kings v Lahore Lions Match abandoned without a ball bowled
A persistent downpour in Bangalore forced the match between Chennai Super Kings and Lahore Lions to be called off without even the toss having taken place. Rain had been around in the lead-up to the match, but the players were briefly able to get out for their warm-ups around 15 minutes before the scheduled toss time. However, the rain returned with intensity, and about an hour after the scheduled start of 8 pm, the game was abandoned with large puddles of water on the outfield.
Lions got on the board with two points for the washout and Super Kings went second behind Kolkata Knight Riders with six. Knight Riders have already qualified for the semi-finals. Super Kings have a game left against Perth Scorchers while Lions have two matches against Dolphins and Scorchers.
