So, Rain has the final say. Game 11 of the World T20 League between Chennai Super Kings and Lahore Lions has been called off without even the flip of the coin. Points have been split, but the scenario has left Chennai’s semif-final hopes in jeopardy. As it stands, Chennai will have to win their final match against Perth at all costs to push ahead for the knockouts. Lahore still have two matches left.


 

Meanwhile here is Suresh Raina’s knock in the IPL 2014 qualifiers against KXIP.


 

Live pictures show that it is absolutely bucketing down at the ground. It is quite flooded and there is a lot of thunder and lightening.



 

The covers are under a few inches of water and it is pelting down. Only the square is protected, the boundaries are quite flooded. There’s wind, there’s thunder, there’s lightning and there will be no cricket anytime in the near future. 10.45 pm is our deadline tonight. If we can’t get a match started by then, both the teams will share points.


 

 


 

 


We are hearing news that the umpires are out in the field and that they’re hoping to keep to the schedule as long as there is no rain. However, the weather is not so accommodating, as the CLT20 twitter handle notes: “The drizzle in Bengaluru is intermittent. Covers going on and off continuously. Teams are warming up, no word on the toss“.
