Michael Vaughan tweets: Heaviest rain it's been for 2 hours and now they decide to play....
8:55 PM Local Time: Oh oh! Bad news. The rain is not going anywhere. It has returned.
8:48 PM Local Time: And the word is that the game will begin at 9.03 PM with 6 overs per side.
8.45 PM Local Time: The covers are off again. The game needs to start in 26 minutes from now.
20:08 PM Local Time: Just as the umpires were about to go out for an inspection, the rain has started to come down again. The square has been covered now. But the groundstaff are running the rope around the outfield to clear a bit of water.
7:51 PM Local Time: The good news is that the covers are coming off. No official word on the number of overs lost yet. The pitch is still under cover. We will have to wait to now the re-start time.
7.10 PM Local Time: Well, the official cut-off time is 9.11 PM. Hope the rain stays away and allows us to celebrate Kevin Pietersen's birthday.
7.02 PM Local Time: The rain is steady and the surrounding areas of the pitch have also been covered.
6.35 PM Local Time: Rain stops play here. It is not that heavy. Not all the covers are coming on. They are only covering the pitch. Cannot see any threatening clouds around. Hope the break is a small one.
0.2 Mitchell McClenaghan to Michael Lumb W
out Caught by Brendon McCullum!! Dream start for Mitchell McClenaghan. The plan to swing the ball away from the left-hander has worked. It was there to be driven outside off stump, Lumb moves across to the off side as the ball was very wide, and in the end he gets an outside edge that goes at a very good height for McCullum at second slip. Lumb c Brendon McCullum b Mitchell McClenaghan 2(2)
0.1 Mitchell McClenaghan to Michael Lumb 2
2 runs, full delivery on the off stump, a hint of out-swing, Lumb walks across and flicks it to backward square leg
Lumb and Hales are at the crease. Lumb is on strike. Mitchell McClenaghan will open the attack
So then. We are all set for the start of play. They are playing on the same pitch that was used a couple of days ago. The weather is not as great as it was on Tuesday. There is a bit of cloud cover. Hopefully we will get a full game. The England openers make their way out to the centre. Here we go for the first ball.
