Lions v Perth Scorchers - no result
Champions League Twenty20 Group A, Ahmedabad

The Champions League Twenty20 Group A match between the Highveld Lions and Perth Scorchers was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to rain in Ahmedabad.

It was due to be the first appearance in this year's tournament for both sides but after the Lions won the toss and chose to bowl, the bad weather closed in.

Heavy rain left the ground full of large puddles, leaving the umpires no choice but to call the game off.

Both sides take two points apiece and hope for better luck in their next matches, which see the Lions play Rajasthan Royals on Wednesday (25th September) and the Scorchers meet Otago Volts on the same day.
