Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals clash abandoned due to heavy rain

The IPL clash between the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Rajasthan Royals is abandoned without a ball being bowled due to heavy rain at Eden Gardens.

The Indian Premier League match between the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Rajasthan Royals has been abandoned without a ball being bowled.

Heavy rain delayed the start of the match as the pitch at Eden Gardens became sodden due to the severe downfall.

There was optimism that the rain would clear and the field would dry to allow a five-over match between the sides.

However, the downfall persisted and the umpires decided to call off the game for safety reasons.

The Royals top the IPL table after winning five of their eight matches, while the Knight Riders are in third place with three victories from their six games.
