3.45pm The groundsman, Warnaweera, has just given the shake of the head to the Sky box. It's all over.

3.35pm Massive puddles on the outfield. The groundstaff are sliding around on the covers and have left a few areas exposed. If we do get any more play, it won't be for an hour or so at the earliest.

"The outfield is flooded," says Andrew Miller. "There is no way they will get back out there. The tap has now been turned off, but the pools are calf-deep."

3.30pm And it's chucking it down now, you can barely see the fort and this will be a long delay and might even be it. But the weather has a habit of changing more often than Kylie in concert. There's already water on the covers and the groundstaff are battling against the wind and rain to drag on the remaining tarpaulins ... it's an almost futile exercise and they've actually given up.

3.20pm And they're off, here come the groundsman who sprint on with the tarpaulins. Yes, it's certainly raining now and the clouds are dark and nasty. At the moment they just threaten but if they unload then we will have a lengthy stoppage.

A great spot from Jon in Switzerland. Ryan Sidebottom (253) has now faced more balls in this series than Kevin Pietersen (250). Ravi Bopara has managed only 73.

Muralitharan to Sidebottom, no run, very close! He was very nearly rapped on the pad on the back foot, but jabbed down at the last moment

Muralitharan to Sidebottom, no run, well played. Off the back foot and nudged to leg

Yes, it's officially raining. That's definitely more than a mere "spit". We'll be going off shortly
