17th Match (N), Chennai, Jul 31 2021, Tamil Nadu Premier League

10:55 pm The rain has persisted and the match has been abandoned. Both teams share one point each. Thanks for tuning in, this is Binoy George, along with Thilak and Sudeep signing off. Do join us again tomorrow for another double-header.

10:00 pm The rain has not stopped yet, but the intensity has come down. We might have some play today. There are some water puddles near the square, the drying up process can only start once the rain has subsided.

09:24 pm It's coming down quite heavily now and the players are off. I'm afraid that should be it of this innings. If so we'll have a revised target. Join us once the rain halts.

V Athisayaraj Davidson to R Silambarasan, OUT

looks to pinch a run and gone! Slower ball on off and a wild hoick across the line. Misses the ball and Anirudh call's for a suicidal run and the keeper hits the bulls eye. Anirudh was short by a country mile.

V Athisayaraj Davidson to R Silambarasan, no run

Mukunthan to Akash, OUT

back of a length, again fancies to clears mid-wicket fence but nowhere near the middle of the bat. Sanjay who had dropped catch few balls before settles in and pouches a good catch

L Kiran Akash c Sanjay Yadav b Mukunthan 8 (6b 0x4 1x6) SR: 133.33

telegraphs his shuffle way too early and allows the bowler to alter his length. Kiran Akash saunters across for the half-paddle half-scoop shot but the length was too full, misses the ball by quite a long way

Mukunthan to Akash, SIX runs

this is a might heave! Length on off, gets low and hoicks over deep mid-wicket fence for a huuuuuge six

Mukunthan to Akash, 2 runs

full on off, clears his front leg and heaves high back over the bowlers head. Two fielders converge, one of them is Sanjay who shells the catch.

length outside off, seemed a slower ball too. Kiran Akash looks to aim at the heaven but forgets to put bat on ball

Mukunthan to Anirudh, 1 run

waltz down, tickles off his pad and they scamper through for a leg-bye

Penultimate over coming up!

short, way over his attempted upper-cut. Play and miss

V Athisayaraj Davidson to Sugendhran, OUT
