Yesterday’s match - Namma Shivamogga vs Bellary Tuskers, 4th Match, was abandoned without even a single ball being bowled. They didn’t even go through the motions of the toss. Both teams share a point each. Learning to share because of the rain. Oh well. From a thriller third match to a wet blanket fourth.
Today’s match. Same venue as yesterday. Let’s hope the rains permit. Match starts at three in the afternoon though.

Hubli Tigers are second on the table and Bengaluru, at the bottom with one loss from the match they played. We are still very early in the tournament so this current stand has no implications yet. Course seeing as the rains are very much on the cards; we will not discount the importance of the run rate.
