The toss was delayed, and the match was reduced to a quick 7-over affair. But the weather gods had other plans. Rain returned right after the toss, forcing the match referee to abandon the game altogether.

Deja Vu Alert!

This situation might sound familiar to some fans. Way back in 2012, a similar thing happened! A match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings also got canceled due to rain after the toss.

Most Rain-Affected Season Ever?

Looks like this season might hold the record for the most rain-affected IPL. With this latest cancellation, there have been a total of 3 washed-out matches in 2024. Previously, 2009 and 2011 saw 2 matches cancelled each due to rain.
