Dhoni’s Men and Lahore Lions Share Point as Rain Plays Spoilsport in Bengaluru

cskNew Delhi, Friday, September 26 – Cricket fans were highly disappointed the moment match between Chennai Super Kings and Lahore Lions was called off thanks to heavy and constant rainfall in Bengaluru. Rain played spoilsport, leaving CSK and LL with no option but to share point.

The unstoppable rain made umpires to abandon the match without a bowl being bowled. At a stage where both the teams looked forward to maintain the momentum and win the match, to strongly move ahead and take a step forward to the next round, sharing point would hardly be liked by any team. At M Chinnaswamy stadium, ground remained covered as heavy downpour stayed all set to make pitch and outfield wet. Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his team are big hope from Indian side and this is the reason why all eyes were stuck on rain to stop. In view of the fact that match on Thursday was abandoned, the key aim of the men in yellow would be to log victory in the match 15 in opposition to Perth Scorchers on September 27 at Bengaluru.

As of now, cricket fans are waiting to see a solid contest between Cape Cobras vs. Barbados Tridents and Kings XI Punjab vs. Northern Knights. These two matches of Group A are scheduled to take place on Friday, September 26, in Mohali. Huge interest of the audience lies in T20 cricket given that outcome is obtained in 3 hours. Viewers do not need to stick to TV sets for many hours as they have to do while watching other formats of cricket. This is the chief cause why Champions League T20 fever gripped sport lovers.

The ongoing tournament is grabbing eyeballs and that’s all because of interesting concept. Batsmen go for biggies while bowlers too give breakthroughs to their team when cricketers succumb to them in an attempt to send the ball into the fences. Without a doubt, 20 over game is more about scoring runs, however, several innings by a number of squads prove small targets can also be defended. In the current tournament, participants are contesting against each other in ‘group stage matches’, which will last up to September 30. Top four teams will qualify for next round and leave no stone unturned to win the semi-finals, which are scheduled to take place in Hyderabad on October 2. Finals will be played among the winners of semis on October 4 in Bengaluru. As of now, viewers wait for exciting matches in the coming days and all set to cheer for favorite teams.
