New South Wales 1 for 88 (Cowan 48*) v Victoria
Scorecard

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.

Due to the dampness of the outfield play did not begin until around 2pm, and the Test 12th man Peter Siddle soon claimed the wicket of Ryan Carters to break his stand with Ed Cowan.

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.
