Dark clouds have suddenly appeared and it's mizzling. Umpires conferring And it is getting heavier so covers have been called on and that will be tea Match State: Tea - Day 2

Well certainly wasn't forecast. But hopefully it will pass through quickly. It's been quite a session for Lightning, taking eight wickets for 69 runs and Warriors lead only 37 Hopefully we can start again in 20 minutes

Still raining so we will have a delayed restart and now hoping the rai doesn't last too long Match State: Delay - Day 2 - rain

The rain has stopped, the umpires have had a first look and will look again at 5.30pm

It's the same story as yesterday, unfortunately. The rain has done its worst to the square and no chance of any more play today. We start again for the last time tomorrow at 11am. Join me again then when we can but hope for a full day's play Match State: Stumps - Day 2

The news at the start of day 3 is that, after overnight rain, it is a wet Balrothery that greets us. We have a delayed start, with the next update after an inspection at 11.30 Result of the inspection is tat we will have an early lunch at 1pm and another inspection at 1.30. But if no more rain still hopeful of play Match State: Delay - Day 3 - rain And I'm afraid the umpires and captains have agreed that it is too wet to continue, the game has been called off without any play on the final day

It continues the sorry saga of this year's inter-provincial championship, five games played, all interrupted by rain and now five draws. Lightning increase their lead at the top of the table by one point, they take 11 to Warriors 10 here The final match is at Bready between Warriors and Knights, starting on August 27. For now from a damp Balrothery, good afteroon
