First day of Duleep Trophy final washed out

October 21, 2012 15:19 IST

Persistent rain washed out the opening day's play of the Duleep Trophy final match between Central Zone and East Zone without a ball being bowled in Chennai, on Sunday.

The conditions were so bad that even the toss could not take place.

The umpires, C Shamsuddin and Vineet Kulkarni, had an inspection at 11.15am IST and decided against having a toss.

The city has been experiencing constant downpour since the last few days, denying the teams any chance of holding practice session outdoors.
