17:10 local time Rain has stopped and but still it is expected to shower later on. Umpires are inspecting the ground. Play must recommence before 20:25 (Local) so that we can have a minimum of 20 overs to play for an outcome.

17:02 local time It's still coming down heavily, expected to continue and no signs of play as of now.

David: "What happens if there is no result?": Victoria will be declared as winners as they topped the table with 23 points, if it doesn't starts by 20:25.

Victoria have upper hand until now, bagging 4 wickets and giving away 69 runs in 20.1 overs.

All hopes on Forrest and Reardon to construct the innings, long way to go yet both are capable of doing it. On the other hand Victorian seam bowlers have bowled really well, used the overcast conditions to perfection, seamed the ball both ways, beats the edge more often.

Players are leaving the ground as there is a bit of drizzle as predicted before, covers are onto the ground. Grounds man are working hard to cover the surface, heavy rains expected later today at Melbourne.
