The Champions League Twenty20 group B match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Warriors has been delayed due to a wet outfield.

The umpires informed that the match will start at 8.30 pm and it will be a full game.

Earlier, a heavy downpour forced the Champions League T20 group ‘B’ contest between Somerset and South Australia Redbacks to be abandoned without a single ball being bowled at the Chinnaswamy stadium.

The heavy showers, which came soon after South Australia Redbacks won the toss and opted to field, left the ground in unfit for play, forcing match referee Roshan Mahanama to call off the tie.
