Scorer: Gopi Rangarajan | Commentator: Sidharth Monga

It's official. The game has been called off. Although spiritually both the sides can stake claim to the wooden spoon, Pune's better net run-rare means Delhi technically end at the bottom of the table. So long, and thanks for for all the fish. Also RIP Randall Mario Poffo

10.32pm "Match abandoned," says the big screen at the Kotla. Wait for the official announcement, though. It is still raining

10.30pm More rain at the Kotla. Just wait and watch now

10.15pm It has stopped raining, but it has also delayed the resumption by a bit. We will get you the official word soon

10pm It gets heavy now. Positively pouring

9.55pm Some more rain in the air. In the background Black Eyed Peas blare, "Tonight's gonna be a good good night." Meanwhile AA says: "@Ganesh K: Forget about Twitter....cricinfo commentators aren't even at the ground. they sit in some dingy room and publish commentary, after watching it off a TV (sometimes even use the same words and phrases which the TV commentators have said!). how can u expect them to be 'technologically advanced' enough to use something like Twitter?" You got the dingy bit spot on. It drizzles steadily on

9.30pm The curator has told the umpires that it might take another half hour before the ground can be handed over to them. So expect an inspection not before 10pm. Ganesh K meanwhile writes in, "Why is CricInfo not taking comments through Twitter instead relying only on the feedback page?" Well, what happened to the good-ole email?

9.25pm It seems to have stopped raining. Groundsmen get down to work, although no official word on resumption yet

9.15pm It is still raining in Delhi. Apt time to observe some respectful silence for Randall Mario Poffo. RIP Macho Man. "Ooooh yeah!"

9.05pm The rain has eased out a bit, but it is still coming down. Meanwhile Ashok writes in, "Better that it rains today rather than in the business end of the tournament. In my opinion, if any game deserves to be stopped due to rain, it is this one." I don't mind torrential rain in Chennai all through next week. And I know Chennai is capable of that. Meanwhile as we speak, the rain gets heavier. And slightly eases out again. Just wait for the next update. Can't keep up with the fickle rain

8.48pm All right the rain has its say now. Covers come on

Marsh to Ingram, 1 run, Delhi threatening to slip further in the rain as Ingram swings at a length delivery outside off, nearly slicing it as far as third man

The umpires discuss the rain scene, and decide to keep going
