After inspecting the pitch the umpires said the start would be delayed by atleast an hour. This means play won't begin before 1100 hrs local time in all likelyhood.
The umpires would inspect the pitch and the outfield again at 1030 hrs local time again.
The pitch was covered and not much rain had seeped in but the outfield was wet. Particularly at the square of wicket there was some water logging that was cleared with the help of super sopper.
