22:20 (IST)20 AUG 2018

Well, that's two losses in two for the Tuskers. They were cruising along in the first innings at one point, but crumbled towards the end. The Warriors had this in the bag right from the beginning, with Amit Verma and Raju Bhatkal forming a huge partnership to take them home.

22:19 (IST)20 AUG 2018

And that's the game! Shoaib Manager finishes off the game in style with a four!

22:01 (IST)20 AUG 2018

15 overs have passed and the Warriors are just cruising along. It's a mere formality for them, unless there's an apocalypse in the next five minutes.

Warriors 120-2 after 15 overs

21:53 (IST)20 AUG 2018

OUT! Finally! Bhatkal tries to sweep away a Kazi delivery, ends up being rapped right on the pads. He falls just two short of a much-deserved 50.

21:52 (IST)20 AUG 2018

110-1 after 13. Thirteen overs have passed and the required run-rate is now 5.14 per over. These two are enjoying themselves in the middle, and the Tuskers' shoulders are drooping with each passing ball.

21:48 (IST)20 AUG 2018

97-1 after 12 overs. Rajoo Bhatkal seems to have caught up with Amit Verma on the strike-rate front. Or, perhaps, Verma has slowed down? Whatever's the case, these two have ensured that the game is firmly in the Warriors' pocket.

21:45 (IST)20 AUG 2018

93-1 after 11. The Tuskers' spinners seemed to have stopped the run-flow. Only four runs in that over.

21:41 (IST)20 AUG 2018

89-1 after 10. The Warriors are well on course. CM Gautam needs some inspiration, and quick.

21:38 (IST)20 AUG 2018

The mystery spin of Abrar Kazi will have to be dealt with by the Warriors now

21:07 (IST)20 AUG 2018

Welcome back for the chase. Arjun Hoysala and Raju Bhatkal are the opening batsmen for the Warriors

20:39 (IST)20 AUG 2018

The Tuskers eventually end five short of 150. They must be kicking themselves for the way the batting imploded after the 15th over. They showed so much promise, especially Rohan Kadam and Devdutt Padikkal, who scored more than 100 runs combined for the Tuskers.

We'll be back with the Mysuru response. Stay tuned.

20:14 (IST)20 AUG 2018

Verma hasn't had a great day at all with the ball. The control has been missing as he has continuously bowled short - he finishes his quota with 32 runs off four. Padikkal is still going strong.

20:12 (IST)20 AUG 2018

How quickly the game changes - two wickets in one over, and the Tuskers suddenly seem to have a lot of work to do.

It takes little time, and the sudden pressure of Kadam's departure results in the run-out of Abhinav Manohar, who gets out for a single.

Manohar run out Bharet NP/Sharath 1(1)

20:08 (IST)20 AUG 2018

Just when you thought these two will keep motoring along, Suchith plays the trump card and brings himself on. He accounts for Rohan Kadam, who is out bowled.

Kadam b Suchith 59 (43)

20:04 (IST)20 AUG 2018

Update: The rain has vanished and the covers are slowly being taken off.

19:22 (IST)20 AUG 2018

19:16 (IST)20 AUG 2018

Rain Stopped Play: A passing shower is all that is needed to send the players scurrying for cover. The groundsmen are quick to cover the main patch with tarpaulin. 

19:14 (IST)20 AUG 2018

Another big over and the Tuskers are getting a move on here! Both Padikal and Kadam hit a four in that over.

Tuskers 60-1 after 8 overs

19:10 (IST)20 AUG 2018

Finally, a big over for the Tuskers, with two fours coming from the bat of the youngster. Suchith would be disappointed with himself after a great first over.

19:06 (IST)20 AUG 2018

A decent over for the bowling side, conceding just 6 runs. The youngster Padikal got into his stride with a fantastic boundary.

18:59 (IST)20 AUG 2018

18:58 (IST)20 AUG 2018

J Suchith to bowl

18:58 (IST)20 AUG 2018

The Tuskers keep rolling, starting the over with a boundary. Anything that has even a hint of room is being sent away to the fence.
