    Alot of rain overnight and this morning so no play so far

    It was that bad that the pitch got wet so they are trying to dry it out with leaf blowers

    There was a moment this morning where the wind got that strong it blew the covers off and knocked a few people over



    According to espncricinfo the England team are:

    "Apparently concerned that using the leaf blowers on the wet patches it only going to open up the cracks further - an eventuality they would understandably like to avoid, since being skittled by shooters wouldn't help their chances of saving the game.

    We might lose Star and Lyon for the next test.
    We should drop Smith as well and give the poms an outside chance.
