For all those like me who are waiting for the start of the Bangalore Mumbai IPL match. There has been an unscheduled delay in the Royal Challengers (RCB) and Mumbai Indians (MI) match held today due to two small explosions outside the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore where the match is being held.

There hasn't been much information coming forth from the authorities immediately on the incident but security has been beefed up and hence the delay in starting the match. Unconfirmed reports suggest that atleast 10 people including a security guard have been injured.
This is a very critical match for RCB who have only 14 points from the last 13 matches that they have played. Today's win for RCB can land it into Semi-Finals for sure, else they will dilly-dally on others losses to get into the semi's.
Anymore updates, I will keep you folks posted.
Update (16:40hrs): RCB Win the toss and elect to field. The explosion was caused by a fault generator - 3 policemen are injured. Security agencies have sanitized the area.
