Bangalore's much-anticipated clash with the Channai Super Kings was abandoned without a ball being bowled on Wednesday night due to steady rain.

Although the weather held off long enough for the toss to take place, with stand-in skipper Virat Kohli winning and electing to bowl, the heavens opened soon after.

With the rain refusing to abate for the next two and a half hours, the match was eventually called off at 11pm local time.

That meant that the points were shared one apiece, leaving both teams with nine points after eight matches.

Chennai's next clash is at home to the Kings XI Punjab on Saturday, while Bangalore travel to Kolkata for a fixture on the same day.
