Nottingham: Umpires Rudi Koertzen and Russell Tiffin will inspect the Trent Bridge pitch at 12:40 GMT, weather permitting, as they try to resume the second Test between England and India on Friday. Earlier, rains washed out the entire morning session of the second day's play. The officials then decided to take lunch at the scheduled time of 12:00GMT before seeing if the pitch and outfield had dried out sufficiently for play to commence.
Overnight, India was 210 for four after winning the toss. India captain Saurav Ganguly was 29 not out and Venkat Sai Laxman 22 not out after Virender Sehwag had made a Test-best 106. England lead the four match series 1-0 after winning the Lord's opener by 170 runs.
