Twenty20 Big Bash

Tasmania v Victoria

Tasmania won by 9 wickets (with 21 balls remaining)

Good evening and welcome to Cricinfo's coverage of tonight's Big Bash clash between Tasmania and Victoria from Bellerive in Hobart. Unfortunately it is raining at Bellerive at present. The covers are on. The rain isn't too heavy. The players are still warming up but we cannot start until it stops raining. We will keep you posted with any change in the weather conditions. Play was due to start in 20 minutes time at 7pm local time. Every eight minutes lost from that point on means one over deducted from either teams innings. We need 5 overs each to constitute a game. That means we can start as late as 9.05pm.

6.50 pm: No movement from the Groundstaff at Bellerive. The rain won't cease to persist. It could be awhile before we get this game under way.

7.10 pm: We were due to start this match at 7pm local time but it is still raining. There hasn't even been a toss yet, or a naming of the final teams

7.15 pm: The covers have been removed. The groundstaff are now trying to clear up the small amount of surface water on the outfield. We will update you with the revised match conditions shortly.

7:25 pm: The hessian has been pulled back on as the rain got a little heavier. Still no toss. The captains George Bailey and Brad Hodge are reluctant to toss for fear of starting and then coming off for more rain which would disadvantage the side batting first. Also the outfield is very wet and player safety is a bit of a concern for the skippers
