The Rajasthan Royals have reclaimed top spot in the Indian Premier League standings for a few days at the very least as they went ahead of the Chennai Super Kings thanks to a point they have gained following a wash-out in Kolkata against the Knight Riders.

With the ground staff putting in an excellent shift at the Eden Gardens, it looked for a long while that a 5-over a side game might be squeezed out between the reigning Champions the Kolkata Knight Riders and the inaugural winners of the IPL, the Rajasthan Royals, but it was not to be as damp areas around the ground made conditions unsafe for play.

Both teams were forced to be content with picking up a point each. That point takes the Royals one ahead of the Chennai Super Kings, but the Rajasthan franchise has played a couple of games more than their rivals.

The Kolkata Knight Riders meanwhile move a point clear of the Delhi Daredevils into third place, though they could lose that spot back to Delhi, who are in action next at home against the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 8pm kick-off later today.
