Rain washes out Kolkata-Chennai clash

Cape Town: Bad weather continued to play spoilsport at the Newlands cricket ground here as continuous rain washed out Indian Premier League match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings.

Brendon McCullum led Kolkata and Mahendra Singh Dhoni led Chennai got one point each after the abandonment of the tie.

It was raining since morning here and the match was called off without a ball being bowled.

Both the teams badly needed a win as each of them has lost two matches out of three. Before coming to this match, by virtue of their one win each, they had two points.

Chennai Super Kings now stand at third position in the points table while Kolkata Knight Riders are languishing at seventh spot.
