The Unknown Weapon at Chinnaswamy Stadium During the Rain Forecast for the RCB-CSK Match

The most exciting game of the group round is expected to be tomorrow’s IPL match between Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at RCB’s home stadium, the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Both groups are focused on making it to the postseason. CSK easily trounced RCB in their previous meeting, which took place in Chepauk in the opening IPL 2024 match.

Rain is expected for tomorrow’s game, though, which worries RCB supporters in particular. Even if the game is called off due to rain and all points are shared, CSK would still go to the playoffs. For RCB, however, such is not the case.

Fortunately, Chinnaswamy Stadium has one of the best drainage systems in the world—possibly the best in the nation—so fans of the Royal Challengers of Bengal may relax.

Watch the SubAir technology of Chinnaswamy

A SubAir system has been installed at Chinnaswamy Stadium by the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA). Sand is needed for this system’s primary ground base.

To guarantee that the drainage infrastructure works properly, sand was added in place of the customary red soil at the well-known Chinnaswamy ground.

Working of SubAir System

An apparatus of 200 horsepower controls the water evacuation system at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. The outfield can be rapidly prepared for play, even after a significant downpour, thanks to this strong machine’s remarkable 10,000 liters of water per minute draining capacity.
