Kolkata Knight Riders were under 'heavy weather' quite literally as rain put halt to any chances that they would have harboured. Meanwhile, Nashua Titans were clinical yet again and are almost guaranteed a place in the semi-final at the Champions League T20. (All AFP Photos)
In first match of the day, Auckland Aces, who had won their first match against Kolkata Knight Riders, were beaten handsomely by the home side Nashua Titans. In pic, Bates of Auckland is seen after getting a wicket.
Azhar Mahmood, for once, could not live up to the usually high standards. He finished with 1/32 while bowling and only got 7 while batting.
It was Jacques Rudolph though, who continued his brilliant run with another innings of substance getting 63 runs off 56 balls and leading Titans to an emphatic win over Auckland.
Gautam Gambhir may be won the toss but could not do anything in front of weather Gods. Although KKR were fighting hard and Perth Scorchers were 91/2 in 14 overs when rain halted play, they have only themselves to blame having played poorly in the first two games.
Kolkata had brought in Brett Lee for Shakib Al Hasan and Debabrata Das for Rajat Bhatia and may be it worked with Lee getting Gibbs early. Jacques Kallis then removed Shaun Marsh, who looked rather pedestrian on the crease.
Rains had the last laugh and Kolkata, barring a miracle, are out of the tournament. According to some complicated calculations though, they are already out of the CLT20.
