Last Wicket:

Over 33.0  

Over 32.5 JJ Krejza bowls a tossed up delivery to TT Samaraweeragets forward in defence and is hit on the pad first and then the bat and an lbw appeal is turned down. Ponting asks for the review and the answer is that the ball was spinning well over the top of the leg stump. And that is a dot ballThe players are walking back to the dressing room now because the rain is now pretty heavy!

Update at 6:30 local : Its still raining not so heavy but enough to have the entire ground under the covers. And there is lots of water on the covers...

Update at 7:00 local : We just got to see the Umpires talking and they can't do anything with rain still falling around. The chances of having any play at all tonight seem to be very remote.

Update at 8:00 PM local : The Match has been abandoned without a result due to rain!
