Match State: Innings Break 2.20 pm The rain I had been talking about has caused a delay, the covers have come on but the ground staff are talking them off as we speak so we should be back underway shortly Match State: Delay - Rain Stopped Play 2.30 pm Good news! Providing the weather stays kind, which looks likely with bright skies overhead, we will resume at 2.55pm. No news on the reduction of overs, I predict it will remain at twenty, but I'll let you know of any change
