...
That's it from us. The Hubli Tigers win two in a row. Tomorrow's game is between the Ballary Tuskers and the Mysuru Warriors. We'll be there with the live coverage of the game. Till then, it's goodbye!
...
Darshan MB is the Man of the Match for his three sixes in the final over of the Hubli batting and his two-wicket haul.
...
The anti-climax ends with the last-wicket pair stretching the match to the 20th over of the innings. The Tigers eventually win by 25 runs.
...
The match has resumed, with Vinay Kumar restarting the proceedings. The last wicket manages to evade him.
...
Update: The rains have vanished, and the Tigers are back on the field to take out the last wicket as quickly as possible.
...
The players hurry off the field, even as the groundstaff scurries to put the tarpaulin in place on the square.
...
A run-out is the last thing Lions wanted. Shekawat is found short of his crease, and with that, the rain intensifies.
...
Vinay Kumar is back to bowl his last over but there's a passing shower. What next? 
...
47 off 18 balls. Only a miracle can save the Lions from here.
...
New batsman is Hoysala K
...
He goes without troubling the scorers. 

Lions 114-8
...
That's a horrendous mix-up and Hegde is stranded as he tried to get back  
...
The current equation is 67 off 21 balls. The stakes are firmly in Hubli's favour
...
Adkosh Hegde is the new man in.
...
Prithviraj has been having a great game, but will it be enough to take the Lions home?
...
Anil IG has replaced Praveen Dubey.
...
Aditya Somanna is the new man in.
...
Jonathan had made an impact ever since he came to the middle. But just when he looked like he could go away with the game, he ends up sending one down the throat of backward point. That's a huge blow to the Lions - half their side is out cold.

At the halfway mark, the Lions are 64-3. The required run-rate is inching towards 10 now.

Lions: 59-3 after 9 overs.
...
The 50 comes up for the Lions - they are 51-3 after 8 overs.
...
A sudden spurt of wickets and the Lions have suddenly lost the top three with 44 on the board. Still a long way to go.
