The ground staff at the HPCA Stadium worked in full force.
A heavy downpour left a near capacity crowd disappointed.
The worst sufferers were certainly the fans as the match was abandoned without a ball being bowled.
Officials called off the match nearly 50 minutes after the official start time of 07:00 pm IST.
