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.
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.
slower all on off, play and miss. Anirudh at the non-strikers end is running out of deliveries
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
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
this is a might heave! Length on off, gets low and hoicks over deep mid-wicket fence for a huuuuuge six
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
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
slower length ball outside off, look to play the paddle but ends up edging one to the keeper. Not the ideal ball to be playing such shot
dug in short, goes for the pull but get a healthy top edge, flies over the keepers head for a boundary
length on off and cuts to point
pushed to off side with soft hands and waltz through for a quick run. And that's 50 up for the batter. This is the first fifty plus score by a batter for Siechem Madurai Panthers in this edition of TNPL. Surprise.
slower off cutter on off, cuts to deep
flatter trajectory on off, miscues the pull towards long-on
nudged off his pads towards mid-wicket and Sugendhrian fancies a second, sent back
quicker ball on off, inside edge to on side as he was looking to slog
fuller on off, pushed to mid-off
arm ball, lapped to fine leg and back for the second
length ball, tucks away for a single
