TSK 203/5 (20)
WAF 62/0 (4)
No result

That's a sad end. We were in for a treat for sure. But then the rains didn't relent. It started off as a drizzle and then just picked up. The Washington side remains unbeaten and have jumped to the top of the table. TSK have a point on board and have pipped the Orcas side who have played one and lost one. The action continues at MLC 2024. We will continue providing you lightning fast updates. For now, see ya!

18:50 Local Time, 22:50 GMT, 04:20 IST: We are getting updates the game is called off. The drainage isn't that good and chances of resumption were too slim. Both games of Washington Freedom have been rain affected and they would be gutted here that they have had to share points despite having a score of more than 200 to chase. They were off to a rollicking start before the rains arrived. Had over more over been bowled, we would have had a result. The Freedom side were well ahead thanks to the initial onslaught from Smith and Head. But the two teams have to share points. TSK are off the mark but not in a manner that would please them much. Their skipper got some much needed runs and that too plenty of it. He scored a ton, his team got more than 200 and then it seemed it might not be enough. But then the rains have had the last laugh.

18:34 Local Time, 22:34 GMT, 04:04 IST: Pretty much nothing to add. Still, raining. A little drizzle maybe. But there are some blue skies. Washington Freedom would have been ahead if we had managed 5 overs in. More than 30 minutes of play has been lost.

18:08 Local Time, 22:08 GMT, 03:38 IST: More covers coming in as the rain seems to be getting a little heavier. That's not good news for sure. There was some rain predicted but it has arrived early. Remember, the Freedom side won by DLS in their first game as well.

18:01 Local Time, 22:01 GMT, 03:31 IST: Rain has stopped play. The heavens opened up out of nowhere. It was raining runs before that. Head and Smith have gotten stuck into the TSK attack. Head has been provided with a chance and he wants the Super Kings to pay for it. We will get you all the updates as and when we have it. The rain doesn't seem to be a threatening one. Only the centre 22 yards is covered and it doesn't seem to be pouring also. One of the super soppers is also doing rounds. So, we might play as soon as the rain stops.

4.1

Naveen-ul-Haq to Smith, no ball, and that's a no-ball. That landed on the side deck. Was a slower delivery and went horribly wrong. But that will have to wait as the players are going off

Naveen-ul-Haq [1.0-0-17-0] is back into the attack

Has started to rain. They aren't going off as of now.

3.6

Hardie to Head, 2 runs, add 2 to end the over. Was a slow, low full toss, Head slaps it wide of cover to run back for a brace

3.5

Hardie to Head, SIX, oh wow! This man on song is a different beast to handle. On the pads as he shuffled a little and heaved away over deep square. Hardie failed to nail the yorker and was put away. They are scoring at almost 15 per over now. Head has now overtaken Smith

3.4

Hardie to Head, FOUR, fifty up for the duo. Head isn't lagging much now in this partnership and it has all changed in this over. Was a length delivery, angled across, Head slaps it over cover. He managed to get under it and then it was a full extension of the arms

3.4

Hardie to Head, wide, such a fast start here. The Freedom side making a statement here. Slower one, outside off, Head throws his bat at it and misses

3.3

Hardie to Head, SIX, Head getting into his elements. He has swung that miles over deep square. Was a fuller ball on the pads, Head swung the ball away as Hardie tried to follow him. The ball miles over the fence

3.2

Hardie to Head, FOUR, backs away, creates room and drills it down the ground for a four. In the slot and put away with elan. He muscled that

3.1

Hardie to Smith, 1 run, pats a length delivery out into the off-side for a single

Aaron Hardie, right-arm fast medium, comes into the attack

2.6

Zia-ul-Haq to Head, no run, and dropped! Bravo drops it at mid-on. Can you believe it? That was a dolly by anyone's standards. Low full toss, dipping, Head clips the ball away and the man at mid-on makes a mess of it. Head gets a life

2.5

Zia-ul-Haq to Smith, 1 run, and gets a single. Was a full toss, dipping on to the pads, clipped down to deep backward square for a single. Would feel that he missed out over there

2.4

Zia-ul-Haq to Smith, SIX, second sixer off the over. Not many times that Head is overshadowed. Was a fuller length delivery on the pads and the ball has travelled the full journey. The ball has landed in the trees. Heaved away off the pads with loads of nonchalance

2.3

Zia-ul-Haq to Smith, no run, charges down, drills it down to mid-on sans any timing. Was a slower ball as well
