The eliminator between Lucknow Super Giants and RCB was under threat as the rain made its presence felt. The toss was delayed because of the same, and the entire ground was under covers for a while. 

The same threat loomed large over Qualifier one between GT and RR. However, the rain gods showed mercy, and we had an uninterrupted game. 

Kolkata's weather has been unpredictable of late, and Twitter, particularly RCB fans, were furious about Ganguly's decision to take games out of Maharashtra. It is worth noting that if rain washed out the entire game, LSG would have played the Qualifier 2 vs Rajasthan Royals.  

Here are a few reactions: 

 

Earlier, LSG won the toss and asked RCB to bat first. RCB lost their skipper Faf on a duck. Virat and Patidar stabilised the ship, with the latter being more aggressive towards the end of Powerplay.  

Kohli departed after a scratchy 25, Patidar continued the good work and hit a fifty. Maxwell, however, departed soon after.
