And the covers are coming back out as the rain begins to fall again. Disappointing for the Aussies as they are well behind the par score for the Duckworth/Lewis method

4.50pm Still raining in North Sydney. The radar suggests there'll be a bit of rain about all afternoon, but whether it will be enough to finish the game, it remains to be seen. We'll keep you updated when we hear any more news on a resumption time. As it stands Australia is behind the par score, so if the match doesn't resume, the Kiwis will be the victors

5.30pm The game has officially been abandoned due to rain with New Zealand being handed the victory via the D/L method, with the Aussies 13 runs behind the par score. It was an interesting day's cricket, with the Australians no doubt disappointed by the result, especially given the partnership Fields and Perry were building. Thanks for your company today, good evening from North Sydney.
