players havent even left the hotel yet.

If I was a betting man I'd say there is a 0% chance of play looking at the size of that ferkorf Cyclone which is inching closer.

Indian Met Office site is down at the moment which means you cant read the current cyclone report, but yesterday's info was that it would hit landfall at around 9.00pm local time. The fact that it has rained hard and is still raining would mean a minor miracle for 20 overs a side imo :|
Report Innocent Bystander November 11, 2009 8:11 AM GMT
Add to that the media reports for locals not to leave their homes, you wouldnt fancy the chances
Report STEPTOES YARD November 11, 2009 8:19 AM GMT
Plus given the series score doubt there will be enormous will from either side to get a game in even if things do clear up later

Players: Mushtaq Ahmed | Marcus Trescothick
Teams: Somerset

Mushtaq Ahmed was our overseas player at Somerset for a while in the nineties.

There was this one time when it had been raining all afternoon and we were all very, very bored. If you know Mushy, he could sometimes get to be a very annoying little character, especially on a day like that when you're stuck in the change room and it's pouring. So a bunch of us, I think we were eight in all, decided to do something about him.

We put him down on a chair and wrapped him around with tape so he couldn't move at all. We then carried the chair and stuck it in the middle of the pitch and had a little laugh at him. He stayed there for about 10 minutes before managing to escape and came back running - and wet - back to the change room. He was shouting a lot but it's probably not worth repeating!
