Bangalore: Heavy showers have delayed the toss of the 55th Indian Premier League (IPL) match between Bangalore Royal Challengers and Mumbai Indians at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Wednesday. With the skies still overcast, large plastic sheets are protecting the pitch.

With Chennai Super Kings beating the Deccan Chargers by seven wickets in their last match on Tuesday, the Mumbai Indians team are now out of the semi-final contention. So even if they win the match against Challengers, it might not be enough for the Sachin Tendulkar-led team to stay alive in the inaugural Twenty20 tournament.

The Mumbai team would be aiming to get over its last over blues that has seen the team lose its last three matches. Interestingly, the Rahul Dravid-led team had beaten Mumbai in their away match to record their first win of the tournament.
