The Group A match of the Champions League T20, 2013 between Highveld Lions and Perth Scorchers, scheduled for the Sardar Patel Stadium, Ahmedabad, was abandoned in Ahmedabad on Monday.

The match, scheduled for a 4pm start was called off at 5.10pm, due to heavy rain and a wet outfield.

Earlier, at the toss, Lions skipper Alviro Petersen put his team in to bowl in overcast conditions. However, as soon as the toss was over, rain came pouring down.

Since there was no sign of the weather improving and an unplayable outfield, the match was called off.
