Leeds: May 24, 2013

Rain has delayed the start of the second Test match between England and New Zealand at Headingley, Leeds.

With wet outfield and continuous rain, umpires have not gone ahead with the toss. Once the rain stops, umpires will inspect the conditions and take a call. Till 1 pm local time (17:30 IST) the covers were still not taken off.
England are 1-0 ahead in the two-match Test series. The home side registered a comprehensive victory at Lord’s beating the Kiwis by 170 runs in the first Test.
