5th Over
The match has been abandoned due to the weather.
Here comes another shower. The covers are back on - it's one of those days today.
The covers are off but there is no word yet about a restart time, it is quite wet underfoot so it may be a while yet.
It has stopped raining for the time being and the umpires are out and inspecting the ground, it looks quite damp underfoot however.
Still raining steadily here. According to the radar we are in the middle of a large band of rain. We will keep you posted of any change in weather.
The rain is coming down now and the players are off.

13:51 This match is on schedule to start at 2pm, the weather radar does not look great however and we may get some rain during the match.
13:38 Welcome to coverage of this Futures League Twenty20 match, between New South Wales and Western Australia.
11:41 Word has come through, this match has been relocated to Bill Lawry Oval and will follow the Queensland v South Australia match being played there at the moment. Start time of 14:00 AET. Join us then for live coverage.
10:43 Match officials have just informed us that this match will be relocated, it's just a question of which venue it's relocated to, either Bill Lawry Oval or the Junction Oval. We will let you know when a decision has been made.
10:36 We'll keep you updated when we get word of a decision from the match officials. For now though, there'll be no cricket here at Mervyn G. Hughes Oval.
10:35 Moving it to the Junction Oval poses a problem in itself. The ground staff will need to prepare the venue with no matches scheduled there today. One would reckon Northcote would be the more likely venue of the two.
10:30 At this stage, the word is they'll either relocate it to Bill Lawry Oval in Northcote, where Queensland are taking on South Australia, or to the Junction Oval.
10:25 News has just come to hand. The match here at Mervyn G. Hughes Oval has been called off, however, officials are attempting to have the match relocated to another venue.
10:14 We've still got some light drizzle, the rader is showing some more showers on the way, but they don't look too threatening and may miss us altogether.
10:09 Water had already gotten onto the pitch and Western Australian captain Brad Hogg had told officials he wasn't going to risk his bowlers if the pitch was damp. Of particular concern was a wet patch on the Eastern end of the pitch, where the footmarks are.
10:04 Spoke too soon. We've just had a heavy shower pass by. The covers were off at the time and the ground staff were caught by surprise. Water has gotten onto the pitch, which will cause some problems.
09:51 The ground looks to be in pretty good condition, a bit of surface water which the ground staff should be able to clear. The officials are confident of getting underway before the cut off time of 12:00 AET.
09:48 Unfortunately, there's been some overnight and morning rain, so we've got a delayed start to this match. The covers have just been removed and the weather is starting to clear, which means we should be able to get in a reduced overs match.
