    Talking of moody, I'll leave you with this image of a rather drizzle-swept Oval. Thanks for contributing to the blog. All your comments much appreciated. Roll on the Ashes!

    @susher99 @SkyCricket It's been much drier this summer. Lot less play lost to rain. Just unlucky tonight. Can't rely on our weather! #moody

    Earlier Eoin Morgan spoke to Wardy about his injury, KP's return, chasing targets & plenty more. Well worth a watch.

    @SkyCricket something to be said for building a super dome somewhere, cricket indoors, all year round #guaranteedgame

    Not quite, Joseph - cut off time for a game is 9.11pm so we've still got a few minutes. But quite frankly I reckon the answer to your question is a definitive 'yes'. "This is an umpires' nightmare," muses Bumble while admiring the brief efforts of the fire breathers to stoke up proceedings.

    @SkyCricket : Bad news - the covers are back on and the players have retreated. #engvnz” Game over now then?

    Mmm. It is still raining but only the wicket is covered now then and the Black Caps seamers are out bowling on a nearby practice strip.

    @SkyCricket : Six over a side game to start at 9.03pm" full value for money for the crowd then!

    "@SkyCricket : Six over a side game to start at 9.03pm #engvnz" nonsense! 6 over match, joking right?

  • 20:44

    Covers have come off so we can get going quickly IF it stops raining. We need to be back on by 9.11. No confirmed restart i'm afraid.
