A good partnership by Thorpe and Vaughan has brough England well back into this game after Pak got a couple of early wickets Pak After tea, assuming weather permits, will be a battle of swing and defence Match State: Day 2 - Tea Rain has descended and covers on, we will not be starting for now Match State: Rain stopped play Covers on, umbrellas up, cricket down, wonder if this is Manchester after all? We will be back as soon as the weather permits The Met office had forecast rain and it does look bad for remainder of the day, if it does blow over, there could be an extra hour, tomorrows forecast is far better This comm wonders if the forecasters (so used to rain in England) mean 'by better' that its more rain or less rain? Well I hope I have not insulted them by that and it will be a good day tomorrow, but now most pundits forecast a draw in this game We have more and more covers being brought on, the textile mills around Manchester must be busy Rain has stopped but covers still on Covers are being removed partially The roll-on cover still there, play to start 5PM local, meaning in about 20 mins Light will be the factor to allow play or not, but looks hopeful, the extra hour option may be invoked Players coming on, while covers being rolled away Play to start promptly at 5 local time Umps out now Now the batsmen Everone cold and covered in sweaters Saqlain to start off to Thorpe Has a silly mid off and a slip
