Frustratingly the match has been called off. The sudden downpour has done its damage. With the massive puddles and poor drainage at the venue, there was a fleeting prospect of more action. Both teams will get a point.

6:55pm: Rain has thinned but the drainage is not good at Morrisville and the chances for a resumption are becoming slimmer. It looks like the umpires might call it off given the remote chances of getting the ground ready for a restart. MLC needs to work on improving and upgrading facilities at these venues for sure. Already, it's the second game where rain has played spoilsport.

Five overs must be bowled to the chasing team to constitute a match. Last time, WF were fortunate against MINY as rain arrived in the eighth over and they were four runs ahead on the DLS. Today, they'll still be the happier side to walk away with one point and remaining unbeaten at this nascent stage of the season but this situation doesn't bode well for the tournament. Let's hope there are no more called-off games

6:35pm: Light rain now and there are blue skies visible. It has got much brighter but there are some puddles forming on the ground. The ground staff will need some time to get the conditions fit for resumption. The initial forecast predicted rain for later but it came pouring down earlier. Stay tuned for further updates

It does look like Australia missed a trick by not picking Steve Smith for the World Cup. I mean, you have to use his experience, and he would have been a handful in conditions that were tough for batting. It needed experienced campaigners to battle through the conditions, tricky situations, and he could have certainly navigate through choppy waters

Naveen-ul-Haq to Smith, (no ball)

Over the wicket, it has landed outside the pitch as he aimed for a wide yorker watching him shuffle across off-stump and it's called a no-ball. The rain has got much heavier so the players are going off, similar situation for WF when they were chasing against MINY the other day and it was Steve Smith on strike that day hitting bowlers all around the park and WF were ahead on the DLS and eventually won that game. But according to the forecast today, it's probably going to be a passing shower and hopefully we'll be back on the field. The ground staff has covered the pitch

Low full-toss on middle, a harmless delivery and he bunts it straight to Dwayne Bravo who drops a dolly, came in and pouched it but then it just burst out of his hands, hit him high on the palm, that is a clanger, how costly will that be in the context of this game?
