bit of pressure released for Titans! Rampaul is punished for bowling length wide outside off and Mosehle spanks it over backward point
7.40pm: The match has been called off and T&T have won by six runs (D/L method).
So T&T have eight points now with a game to play. It's still raining in Ahmedabad and the second match of the evening between Sunrisers and Heat looks a doubtful starter. Puddles around the outfield.
T&T have a shot at the semis and Titans' chances will depend on the match between Chennai Super Kings and T&T.
Really questions the wisdom of deciding to host the matches in Ahmedabad despite the rain warnings. This topic won't rest.
We're signing off for the moment. Do follow the commentary for the next game for updates. We're not sure yet if there will be an indoor presentation for this one. If there is, we will bring it to you. For now, it's goodbye. Thanks for your company. Cheers!
Update: Ewin Lewis is the Man of the Match.
7.30pm: Pommie Mbangwa tweets: "The rain has eased but puddles out on the field now. There's been a lot of rain here in the last…"
Ganesh Ramachandran: "Keeping the matches @ Ahemadabad defies yet another logic of the CLT20 council :) When you pull out matches, pull everything out ! Reports clearly showed that forecast was bad even for today... Why let Rain decide most of the fortune when the best teams compete? Not to forget, Ahmedabad has the worst of draining facilities in India (Still yet to forget the swimming pool facility inside the stadium)"
7.15pm: Heavy rain is an understatement. The wind's blowing away the covers and it's only the main square that's protected. Still trying to find out what the cut-off time is. Not that it really matters now with the rain bucketing down.
Kritesh: "This is unacceptable.. How on earth can they have covers just to cover up the main square?? This may result in abandonment of second match as well seeing how heavy the rain is. Utter nonsense."
R Coach: "If Narine didn't take those 2 wickets in the 15th over, DL would have been against us and we would have been on a plane back home already."
Mohandas Menon tweets: "Titans could get in if T&T lose by a big margin to CSK in the final game on 2 Oct"
7.05pm: And we have a rain interruption! The wind has suddenly picked up and the rain's getting heavier. The players are off the field and the covers are on the main square.
The par score on D/L is 159 so Titans are behind. If there is no further play, T&T will win this by six runs.
The ground could do with more covers at the moment. Only the main square is protected. We have one more game in tonight at the same venue.
In the event of T&T winning this, it gives the other Group B games context. The second semi-final spot will still be available. Now only if the weather will allow the Sunrisers-Heat match to take place!
follows that up with a good yorker and he digs it out
high full toss and it's a waist-high no-ball, pulled to deep square leg and the fielder fumbles and recovers well to pull it back as it inches back towards the rope
not the most attractive shot, slower ball and he makes room and flat-bats it over the bowler, Simmons runs from long-on and boots it away just before the rope, the umpire has a look and it was a clean save
this was even shorter and Mosehle tries to upper cut it but misses again
he bowls this one short of a length and swishes at it, nearly edges it
Pathan: "The 'C' word is being echoed around the cricketing fraternity once again!"
fetches one from wide outside off and he pulls it to midwicket
very nearly carries to slip again! Quicker one and he plays it with soft hands, the outside edge drops short of first slip and rolls away to third man
Two slips now
caught at slip! Two down in the over, Narine bowls this one quicker, Wiese looks to work it to the on side but gets a leading edge that lobs to Badree at first slip
this one sneaks through and nearly takes out the off stump
Wiese walks in. He can hit them long and hard
T&T are lucky that let off didn't cost them much, Behardien looks to slog this one over deep midwicket but ends up hitting it flat to Lewis in that position
makes room and chops it to the off side for a single
in the air and it drops short! Behardien looks to slog, gets a top edge and Lewis runs from deep midwicket and the ball drops short
aziz nasir: "Farhan is always considered as under-rated in south african cricket , he is a classy batsmen and a superb fielder in limited overs cricket"
22 off the over! AB waltzes down the track and hammers it in the air over the bowler, beats mid-on, these have added 47 off 26
got his placement right! AB shuffled across and fetched it from outside off, on his knee and swept perfectly wide of square leg and fine leg
fetches a full one outside off and chips it to long-on
Emrit fires that one wide outside off on seeing Farhaan advance, sprays it too wide
this was effortless! Looked like he checked his shot but that carried all the way over the sight screen, pitched up on middle, lofts through the line and holds the pose
shapes to pull this one and gets an inside edge to the body
more of those needed! A friendly pitched up delivery outside off and Behardien merely lofts through the line and clears long-off
