The Indian Premier League fixture between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to rain at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium.
RCB stand-in skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bowl first but the heavens opened before play could get under way.
Rain fell steadily for the next two-and-a-half hours before umpires Sudhir Asnani and Billy Doctrove called off proceedings.
Both teams collect a point from the abandonment. CSK are in third place in the IPL table, level on nine points but one place above RCB in the nine-team league because of their superior net run-rate.
