Chennai Super Kings v Lahore Lions - no result
Champions League T20 Group A, Hyderabad

Persistent rain in Bangalore meant that the Champions League T20 group stage match between the Chennai Super Kings and the Lahore Lions had to be abandoned without a ball being bowled.

The seasonal rainfall that started approximately half an hour before the scheduled start, flooded the outfield while the pitch and inner circle remained under the covers.

After waiting for a while, the umpires decided that there was no prospect of play with the rain continuing to pour down relentlessly.

Both teams will be awarded two points in today’s abandoned match and they both remain in contention for a place in the semi-finals.

These two teams will both play their next match on Saturday, as the Lahore Lions face the Dolphins and the Chennai Super Kings take on the dangerous Perth Scorchers.
