Hyderabad secure IPL play-off spot after washout

HYDERABAD, India: Sunrisers Hyderabad secured their IPL play-off spot after rain forced their match against the Gujarat Titans to be abandoned without a ball bowled in Hyderabad yesterday.

The washout saw both teams taking a point each, which pushed Hyderabad to third in the table with 15 points.

Gujarat had been knocked out of the play-off race earlier this week after their game against Kolkata Knight Riders was also abandoned due to rain.

The weather in Hyderabad yesterday left thousands of fans disappointed at the Rajiv Gandhi International stadium.

The game was finally called off more than two and a half hours after the scheduled start.

Defending champions Chennai Super Kings, who are fourth, and Royal Challengers Bengaluru lead the hunt for the remaining play-off spot. — AFP
