the light is duly offered to the batsmen, and off the players comes Match State: Bad Light Stops Play This Time we're still 54 minutes away from the scheduled finishing time but I wouldn't hold my proverbial breath waiting for any more action today I should say "cricket" rather than "action", since Zimbabwe managed to deliver a good 49.3 overs worth of cricket with no action and surprise surprise, play is called off at 7:30pm. Be sure to return tomorrow at 945 GMT, we have lots of spontaniety planned. Match State: Close of Day 1 - Play to Continue on the Reserve Day we welcome you to the second day of this one day international with the news that it is drizzling and the covers are on it's been raining very heavily overnight and play is unlikely in the near future. There's only a crowd of about 20 here, and everybody is quite agreed about what a miserable place Leeds is. more news at it comes to hand Match State: Covers on - Resumption Delayed Due to Drizzle at 1100 GMT, it's still raining and very little is happening 1230 GMT: still raining 1415 GMT: weather is still horrible, but there will be an inspection at 1445 GMT correction: there will be an inspection at about 1430 GMT. The rain has stopped. 1450 GMT: still a little drizzle about, but the umpires will be having another inspection at 1500 GMT with a view to starting at 1530 GMT" 1510 GMT: sigh, raining again Match State: It's raining, it's pouring all over, umpires have decided to give the match a lead injection behind the ear, teams get 1 point each Zimbabwe continue to ride the wave of good luck, but they're not qualified for the semi finals yet, there's still a chance they'll tie for 4th and 5th place with NZ tomorrow's match is the low-profile India v Pakistan, starting at 0945 GMT, allowing for the Mancunian weather, which has been as filthy as Leeds today apparently Match State: Match abandoned - 1 point each
