Whatever the decision we make, if it is a 34-over game for a 9pm start and it starts to rain after play resumes then we start tomorrow with the same number of overs. But if we don’t get any further decision on the number of overs today then we have a full 50-over game tomorrow,” said umpires Chris Gaffaney and Ruchira Palliyaguruge.
