Commentary

11.20: Sad it ended this way. It's a double-header in Bangalore tomorrow. Hopefully the rain will relent. See you tomorrow. Thanks for your patience. Bye.

11.15pm: It's still raining. The split result means the group is still open. Mumbai are in a very good position to go through but they still have a game to play. Same with the Cobras, though they aren't as well placed. Chennai and NSW have two games to play. So no one's confirmed in the next round yet.

11.05pm: Bad news, folks. It seems the game has been called off. We just need to wait for an official confirmation. Yep, it's been called off. It had the makings of a close on, but the teams have to split points in the end.

11.00pm: "This game is on life-support and the plug will be pulled any moment," says Nitin.

10.45pm: It is raining heavily in Bangalore. Looks like we're heading towards an abandonment here. Looking pretty bad at the ground.

10.30pm: The par score for a five-over game is 51, says Nitin. So the target will be 52. However, the rain is still steady and no signs of an immediate resumption.

10.25pm: The rain's gotten heavier. Chances of a resumption anytime soon look bleak. There's still some time left for the cut-off so let's see what happens.

The cut-off time for a five-over game is 11.40pm

10.10pm: "it's got marginally heavier. Still a trickle. They played in much worse rain in that last over. Supersoppers continue to roll around."

"Outfield is quite wet though, it really bucketed down for half an hour."

10.10pm: Mildest drizzle. The drops are like specks of dust. That's the update we have from Nitin.

9.55pm: "Rain suddenly subsides," says Nitin. "hoots of joy from the crowd. Very mild drizzle still on."

9.55pm: Still raining. You can tune into this while we wait. Nitin Sundar and George Binoy discuss the tournament so far.

9.40pm: It's raining pretty heavily in Bangalore, it'll take a while before the match resumes I think.

END OF OVER:
20 | 8 Runs | MI: 176/5

  • CK Langeveldt4-0-45-0
  • DW Steyn4-0-24-1

We may have a delay for the start of the second innings. The rain might just juice the track up a little and the Mumbai Indians seamers won't mind that at all. They have a good score to defend. Kolkata chased down 169 with no hassles yesterday, but let's see how this pans out. Excellent knock by Pollard and a very good start for Kanwar in his opening game for this team. Join us in a bit. We'll keep you updated about the weather. The covers are on for now, and I saw a couple of umbrellas out in the Mumbai dug out. Siddarth Ravindran's bulletin will be updated in a short while.

Langeveldt to Symonds, 1 run, Gibbs, did he drop it? Was a little slow to react, sliced it did Symonds and it landed just in front of Gibbs at third man but he took time to go after that one

Langeveldt to Symonds, FOUR runs, that's well struck, pitched up outside off, he made room anc creamed that over extra cover
