I think it is CC conditions of play, except 90 instead of 96 overs in the day.

If so that would be a 6.00 p.m. finish plus maybe an over or so depending on how long it took us to bowl our 16 overs to date.

IF no more rain we might just get back on before 5.50. In my experience from a few drenchings there, Edgbaston drains pretty quickly after downpours. Putting my head on the block my guess would be 5.30. That of course based on looking at the scene on a laptop ... The greater problem I have found at Edgbaston is light.

Looks like Tom out there trying to convince the umpires that we can start at some point.. the fact that he feels the need to do so may not bode well, in terms of their reluctance to do so.

Lot's of shrugging of shoulders as they stand there in bright sunshine!
Come on, get the game played to completion, that's the whole point!

Umpires look like they're trying to give Tom lots of reasons why they'd like to get home for an early dinner.

And it lookd like we have a particularly wet patch where they are standing and water being squeezed up by the blotter behind.

I think the word LoL is looking for rhymes with grit.

Who was the umpire ((the dark-haired one) who kept yawning during the 5pm inspection? Little doubt which way he voted.

Worcs beat Northants, and top the group.

We will have to beat Gloucs and hope they fail against whatever lot they are playing (presumably this poor Warks side?) .. otherwise it's that trip to New Road, needing to win to be greeted with a track that would be apt on a ground of that name... KT eat your heart out type of pitch.

Yes, the wider shot showed those puddles (and the half hearted attempts to drain them!).
Oh well, one point behind Worcs now I think.

Why does the machine to mop up water only come out after the rain has stopped. Why not be working when it is raining?if pitch and surroundings are OK and problem is the outfield isnt that something the fielding side could say they are happy to put up with?
