Match Abandoned
Both Royals and the Knights are set to face each other once more tonight. The match is scheduled to begin at 12:00 a.m. IST. We hope that the rain clears and we get a full match in. Stay tuned for the updates. This is Bala and Maanas Upadhyay signing off for the time being. Stay home and stay safe!
Unfortunately, there is no improvement in the weather. We have news coming in that the match has been abandoned with just one over being bowled. Both the sides will share one point each.
Rain delay! It's raining cats and dogs at the moment. We might be in for a long break. Stay tuned, we will bring you updates as and when there is a change in the conditions.
Just as Stoman completed that over, rain started coming down heavily. The umpires waited for a bit to see if it is a passing shower, but finally decided to take the players off.
Plenty of extras coming in that over from Stoman. He was getting enough assistance from the pitch, but he lacked discipline and direction. Expensive start for the Knights with 17 runs coming off that over.
