Orissa-HP Ranji match washed off

Cuttack: Weather God played havoc as the opening day’s play between Himachal Pradesh and Orissa in their Ranji Trophy Super League Group B match was called off without a ball being bowled here on Wednesday.

Umpires P Chatterjee and BK Ravi inspected the conditions several times before calling off play at the Barabati Stadium here.

Orissa are languishing at the bottom of the table with three draws and a loss, while Himachal Pradesh is at the fifth position due to a better quotient. Both the teams share five points each.
