Rain Washes out RCB SRH clash Leaving Hosts In A Fix

The rain gods have wrecked havoc on the Royal Challengers Bangalore’s chances of qualifying for the playoffs, washing out the entirety of today’s match with the visiting Sunrisers Hyderabad. With this, both the RCB and SRH will take a point each, helping SRH keep their spot at number three while hosts RCB escaped the last spot in the standings to be sixth with 5 points. However, this is another setback for the Virat Kohli-led team as they have one less match to make a comeback into the Twenty20 tournament. With only six matches to go to the playoffs, RCB have a long way to go and it will take a herculean performance from Kohli’s men to make the cut this time.

Earlier today, it looked clear till match time when the light drizzling developed into a full blown shower, about ten minutes before the scheduled start. The toss was delayed twice, before a slight letup in the rain gave hopes of a curtailed match. However, that was not to be as it soon started raining cats and dogs again, forcing the match officials to cancel the match at 2300.

RCB next play the Gujarat Lions on April 27, again at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, while the Sunrisers Hyderabad are slated to play the struggling Kings XI Punjab at the PCA Stadium in Mohali the next day.
