BANGALORE: Thursday’s downpour left the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) in a state of mess, with a portion of the facility’s false ceiling near the media enclosure crashing down and a volunteer having a close shave.

Many pipes started leaking, leaving several rooms and corridors flooded. Some bulb sockets too showed leaks and there was fear of a short circuit. Consequently, all the connections were switched off. 

However, treading in the rain with no lights on proved trying for fans who had come to Chinnaswamy Stadium hoping to enjoy a good day of cricket, but were left to trudge back home after the Chennai Super Kings-Lahore Lions Champions League T20 match was called off.  And by the time the fans managed to make their way out, the roads were waterlogged.

Meanwhile, spectators who had purchased tickets for the match can claim a refund from the box office at Gate No 6 before October 2.
