Match Abandoned
An unfortunate end to what was turning out to be a formidable comeback for Bangladesh Austria. Vienna Danube lost their skipper early in the game, but then set the stage on fire in the powerplay. But what came after that was not predicted by anyone. At 55/1 in the fourth over, Vienna Danube were all set for a blazing total, but Bangladesh Austria had other ideas. In a span of 3 overs from having lost just 1 wicket, Vienna Danube went to having lost 8. Runs had dried up, and none of the new batters seemed interesting in staying out to score. It was havoc all around, and Bangladesh Vienna were having a gala time. At the end of the 8th over they needed just 1 wicket to wrap the innings up, but just after the 9th over the rain gods decided to pull up in favour of Vienna Danube, coming in heavy from the skies to abandon the remaining game. What looked like a thriller had to be cut short, but mind you, there is a lot of cricket more to come in the ECS. That's all from this fixture, but do join us next time. I have been Ankit Sharma, along with Karthik Raj, as we bid you farewell! 
Update: The game has been abandoned seeing that the weather has not improved. The next game although could happen in about 40 minutes time. So do switch tabs for that game. 
The umpires after being quite adamant on finishing the first innings have been forced to take the fielders out of the field as it is pouring down quite heavily for the players to continue. Stay tuned as we bring you the updates.
