Weather worries for Red Force
Monsoon rain continued in Ahmedabad, India yesterday and organisers of the 2013 Karbonn Smart Champions League are now seriously thinking about moving the T&T versus Titans match to Delhi instead.
The Mumbai Indians match that was carded for today has been moved to Jaipur. If the rain continues through the night the match with the Red Force will be moved from the Motera Stadium to the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi. According to a tournament official, a definitive decision will be made on Friday, as to whether the match stays or go to Delhi.
Meanwhile, T&T practiced yesterday at the Indoor nets at the Motera Stadium as the rain continued to fall all over the city. For the first part of the morning the place was dry but by mid-afternoon the rain started to come and got heavier by evening.
Currently the Motera Stadium is under water and it would take a few days to have it ready for cricket. If the rain continues this will not be possible by Monday for the TT match. Just a cople hours away from here in Surath, the entire place is under water. The Monsoon rain started to fall three weeks ago and has been going strong with no indication of a let up soon.
T&T can ill afford to get a washout against the Titans because it could all but signal the end of their final campaign in the Champions League.
They have one win (against Brisbane Heat) and one loss against (Sunrisers Hyderabad) and needs to win their final two matches, which include a match-up against Dwayne Bravo’s Chennai Super Kings in Delhi on October 2.
The players are staying indoors for the most part and are more or less hanging out at the Alfa One Mall which is on the compound of the Hyatt Hotel, where they are staying.
