Cowan endures on rain-wrecked day
New South Wales 1 for 88 (Cowan 48*) v Victoria
Another interrupted day allowed only 24.3 overs to be bowled in the Sheffield Shield match between New South Wales and Victoria at the SCG, though this time the lack of play had more to do with the aftermath of Friday's storm than any rain on the day itself.
Kurtis Patterson and Cowan then carried on for 45 runs, the latter reaching the cusp of another half century to follow his hundred against South Australia in Adelaide last week.
However Victorian concerns about still-slippery areas of the outfield did not abate, and play was ultimately abandoned in mid-afternoon due to these issues.
