8:57 pm: The umpires will inspect the conditions in a short while again.

8.43 pm It's stopped raining a short while back. The umpires have been out there, checking the state of the outfield. No official word yet, on the start time. The umpires are working out the D/L targets. Once they finish that, they will start the game.
8:05 pm Rain suspends play. Cozier informs that the breeze is blowing pretty hard and it might just be a passing shower. No play for the moment, though. The wind is indeed pretty strong. Meanwhile, the rain gets heavier.

The thing is that just a couple of years ago a guy by the name of Shiv used to open the ODIs with a guy named Chris. suddenly WI started experimenting and at the same time they shuffled Shiv up and down the batting order, guess they were not serious about his talent so lets hope that Chatters doesnt have the same experience as they try to revive Smith and others careers!""
