10.26pm So we have it. The rain has not entirely held up and the umpires were forced to make a decision after their inspection a few minutes ago. The result is that West Indies have won by 29 runs. They were ahead of the D/L par score of 112 at the end of 20 overs. They will take the win, but what a pity that such a fabulous hundred from Tendulkar could not come to India's use. He gets the Man-of-the-Match award, nevertheless, a mere drop in the kitty for him.

So, after two matches in this DLF Cup, the series reads Australia one win, West Indies one win, India zero. Thats all we have from here. Do join us for Cricinfo's live coverage of the third ODI, between India and Australia, on September 16. Until then, this is your commentator, Jamie Alter, signing off. Cheers!

10.03pm The rain has slightened just a touch and the umpires will make an inspection in 20 minutes. Thats 10.23pm local time.

9.20pm The word is that 10.45 pm local time is the call-off time. There has been feedback coming in asking for clarification on how many overs must be completed to constitute a match. Let me confirm that, per the ICC's rules: its 20 overs, not 25, that make a match.

And allow me to reiterate the scenario once more: if there was no further play, West Indies would be declared winners as they are well ahead of the D/L par score of 112 (for the loss of two wickets, in 20 overs).

9.03pm Rain continues to come down. This match must be completed by 11pm local time tonight. Matters can change quite fast in such match conditions, so even a half hour could be crucial. The umpires are inclined, remember, to lean towards what the captains would like. Rahul Dravid wouldn't want to move anywhere, while his opposite number would be more than keen to walk off win a win.

As we wait for word from down in the middle, check out Dileep Premachandran, our man in the press box, assess Sachin Tendulkar's amazing hundred earlier in the day. It would be a shame, from an Indian perspective, if such a knock were to go to waste here. But for West Indies, this win will be a real boost following their shocking capitulation in the series opener against Australia.

8.50pm Its still raining quite heavily. The drainage system is said to be steady, which is encouraging, but the consistency of the rain is a worry.

8.45pm So, West Indies needed to be 113 at the 20-over mark, according to Messrs. Duckworth and Lewis. They are well ahead of that. That means, if there is no further play, they would be declared winners.

8.30pm And the rain becomes heavier now. Umpires call for the covers as the players head off. The West Indies are 141 for 2 after a round 20 overs. At this stage they are well ahead of the target run rate. Stay with us for further updates.
