No play possible in Kolkata
The IPL match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Deccan Chargers has been abandoned without a ball bowled following a downpour at Eden Gardens.
No play was possible with much of the pitch underwater, the wind and rain in Kolkata even causing some boarding to collapse from the side of the stadium's police control room.
The IPL website confirmed one person had been taken to hospital, with reports suggesting another had also been injured.
The start was initially delayed in the hope of conditions improving, before the decision was taken to call the match off. The outcome meant a point apiece for Gautam Gambhir's second-placed Knight Riders and Kumar Sangakkara's bottom-of-the-table Chargers - their first in the 2012 tournament.
The IPL's match stream reported: "Some boarding collapsed from the side of the police control room and one person has been taken to hospital with injuries. Severe water logging on the pitch here. Outfield resembles a swimming pool at the moment.
"Update: Supersoppers are hard at work but they have a lot of work to do if we are going to see any cricket tonight."
It added soon after: "Match abandoned without a ball bowled. So that is that.
"Unfortunately we lose our first and hopefully last game in this year's DLF IPL. Deccan get their first point and let's look forward to another double header tomorrow."
