Weather Update

It was raining for two hours in Hyderabad and the covers were removed after the rain stopped. But, the black clouds have came again and the covers are back on the field. The toss will be surely delayed because of this.

Rain Update

The rain has been stopped. The covers are also being taken off. The super soppers are working on the field. There are some puddles of water. Stay tuned for the update of the toss.

Covers Are Off

The centre-covers are coming off. The ground also looks clean and we can have an update on the toss news very soon.

Rain Is Back!

There is another delay in the toss as a slight drizzle has further delayed the start of the match. The covers are back on the field.

Rain Update

It is still raining and we have officially started losing overs. If the rain stops, there will be a deduction in the 20 overs. It is heavily downpouring.

Another Washout For GT?

It is still raining. The covers are still on and supporters are enjoying the light show. The cut-off time for a five-over-per-side match is 22:30 pm IST. For that, the rain has to stop now because the ground is wet and it may need some time to work on the water puddles as well.

If Washout, SHR Will Qualify!

If there is going to be a washout, the SRH will qualify for the playoffs with 15 points in 13 matches. GT are already eliminated from the race.

Match Abandoned!

The rain never stopped. The covers were underwater. It may take a lot of time to soak the ground. The referees met and both captains shook hands to make it official. The 66th match has been abandoned without toss.

SRH Into Playoffs

Sunrisers Hyderabad have become the third team to qualify for the playoffs. After the match was abandoned, one point was given to each team which made their tally 15 points in 13 games. This also means that they can't finish in the top two by just winning their next match against PBKS. RR will have to lose their next match if SRH wish to finish second in the standings. GT's journey ended with back-to-back washouts.

Goodnight!

There was no cricket possible on Thursday. Let's hope it will not be the same tomorrow. We will be taking your leave now. That's all from our side. Goodnight!
