Rain plays spoilsport again in IPL final


Chennai Super Kings have been handed a revised victory target of 171 off 15 overs in the Indian Premier League (IPL) final against Gujarat Titans in Ahmedabad.

That's after the match briefly came to a halt due to rain.

Chennai had just started their 215-run chase and were at four for no loss when rain intervened.

Earlier, Sai Sudharsan's 96-run knock helped the Titans finish on 214-4 after 20 overs of play.

The title decider was pushed to the reserve day on Monday after rain had forced the play to be abandoned on Sunday as well when the final was originally scheduled.

Chennai are looking to clinch a fifth IPL crown, while defending champions Gujarat are aiming to become the second team to win back-to-back titles.
