The forecast looks grim. Heavy rain until early afternoon, then lighter rain or showers. And India has moved steadily shorter in the outright winner market, because they go through if a washout.

Forecast could change, but at this stage, I don't see much chance of a completed match.

Anyone like to suggest the the latest time we need to start to get 40 overs in?

Met Office forecast changed some but not for the better. Heavy rain forecast around 4pm, which makes squeezing in 40 overs late in the day unlikely. Models don't look much better. Perhaps some play after 2pm.

This is one to keep your eye on closely I think.  Last start time would be 4:17pm as it was on Sunday.  They are fast at getting the ground dry and if there is a fair break in the rain they might just manage it.  Probably unlikely but could be fun and games like Sunday.  If only they had scheduled it today - absolutely lovely day here in the SW.  Currently on NO completed match.

Quick question. If SL vs India can't play a complete match do they play a super over to see who goes through?

RMB- if the match cant be completed due to weather India qualify for the final as group winners. A super over would only be played if a completed match ends in a tie.

So if its a tie they only need 2 more overs to decide the winner but if its not a tie they need at least 40 overs?CrazyCrazy rules! Surely its better to have a match even if only 5 overs then no play at all as people at the ground and at home want to watch cricket!

already raining in cardiff.  Anyone backing yes at 1.5 is mad

Its only going to head lower, after this rain there will be at least 3 hours of relatively clear weather, the next front is very questionable whether it will make it far enough to the west, 1.5 is value. imo.

I think we'll get a start in - but the problem as always is that they will play it as a 50 over game.  The afternoon rain is the real danger.

Not far from the ground - yet again Cardiff have put on some crappy weather. It was a lovely day yesterday.

It stopped raining around 50mins ago - not much wind. Lots of dark clouds right across the sky. Reasonably warm conditions and I have heard some birs whistling away so I think they know what is going to happen ....

yeah looks promising now.  Got mates at the ground as well who say similar to the above.  Still taking a bit of no cmm here though and hopefully we get some rain after lunch to cause some panic.

I imagine there'll be plenty of time for full 50 overs in first innings.  Only need 2 hours then to ensure CMM Yes

As long as they start no issues I'd say.  Worst case would be some light drizzle for a bit

10.40 am toss ( according to simon doull on twitter ), no news on any reduction in overs
By:

When: 20 Jun 13 10:23
10.20am Toss is set for 10.40am, and play at 11.00am. All that, needless to say, is if there is no more rain.

that later band will hit imo, but atm doesnt look like it will be significant enough to cause any major delay.

cmm market holding up pretty well for what appears a clear radar.  Premium ones the only ones worth looking at.
