Match State: Delay - Rain stops play

The rain returns and the players leave the field. This is frustrating for all but especially for Leinster who are in a very strong position. Not enough overs yet to constitute a result, but Leinster are way ahead on DLS.


17:27 - the rain is coming down as heavy now as it has been all day. But the wind is strong so hopefully it will pass through soon enough.


17:35 - Still coming down heavily but there are signs of a break on the way. Question is, how much time will be needed to mop up?


17:51 - better news, if no cricket just yet. The rain has passed, it is much brighter and the mopping up is underway. We might have cricket quite soon. Will have all the news as soon as we hear.

Match State: Delay - Rain stopped play

The heavens open and the players run off the field. Another in the series of showers we've been having today.

The Northern Knights are just ahead on DLS, but of course we need 20 overs for a result. Hopefully this shower will blow over quickly and we'll get a chance to resume.

No break in the rain at this stage. The covers remain in place and we continue to lose overs and time from the match.
