The return leg match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings was called off after heavy downpour ruled out any possibility of having even a curtailed match.

The two on-field umpires Sudhir Asnani and Billy Doctrove called off the match at 11 pm as persistent downpour played a spoilsport.

Both CSK and RCB got a point each from the game and have nine points from eight matches respectively. With points split, CSK moved up to the third spot while Bangalore are placed fourth in the nine-team table.

Earlier, umpires Doctrove and Asnani inspected the pitch twice and decided to start full quota over match at 9 pm.

RCB’s stand-in captain Virat Kohli opted to field after winning the toss. Just as the match was about to begin, the heavens opened up once again and this time it was fairly consistent drizzle. It only got worse with passage of time as the frustrated spectators at the Chinnaswamy headed back home.
