Indian Premier League - IPL
Delhi DareDevils v Kolkata Knight Riders at Delhi
DDD v KKR, IPL Match 47, Delhi: Kolkata's hopes washed out in Delhi
May 22, 2008Heavy rain caused the abandonment of Thursday's IPL clash between the Delhi Daredevils and Kolkata Knight Riders before a ball was bowled, the first match to be washed out in the tournament so far.
The weather left both teams frustrated as Kolkata were eliminated from the race for the semi-finals while Delhi need to beat Mumbai and hope the Indians lose their other two remaining games to have a chance of advancing.
Heavy rain lashed the Feroz Shah Kotla until around 9.15pm local time and despite the best efforts of the ground staff, poor conditions in the outfield made play impossible.
