A sudden gusty wind and rain coupled with floodlight disruption curtailed the match between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders. However, Chennai inched closer to a semi-final berth with a three-run victory against Kolkata via the Duckworth-Lewis method in an Indian Premier League match on Sunday.
Replying to the Knight Riders’ modest total of 149 for 5, that saw Super Kings pacer Makhaya Ntini get a hat-trick, the Chennai team were 55 without loss after eight overs.
The play was immediately halted when high velocity winds raged accompanied by rains. The Knight Riders may have been disappointed, but this is the way of the glorious uncertainity of the game of cricket.
