Nottingham: Play in the second Test between England and India at Trent Bridge is set to restart at 13:20 GMT on Friday.
Rain washed out the entire morning session of the second day's play and the umpires made their decision after holding a 12:40GMT inspection. The announcement of the restart time that followed shortly afterwards over the public address system was greeted with boos and slow handclaps by some spectators.
They could see England cricketers playing football on the outfield and doubtless wondered why, in that case, the match could not begin immediately. 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 leads the four match series 1-0 after winning the first Test at Lord's by 170 runs.
