28th Over
Plenty of batting practice today, with the conditions favouring the batters, nothing in it for the bowlers. Plenty of runs once New South Wales secured first innings points, which gives them 8 points from their opening two matches. See you next time!
And so the match fizzles to a draw. The rain has ruined what might have been an exciting contest. Certainly, New South Wales had the better of the bowling conditions on the opening day but with rain washing out a day and more, a draw was always favourite.

16:58 AET: The final session of play about to begin. It appears we have a minimum of 23 overs to bowl unless a dramatic batting collapse occurs. Manjot Singh will resume from the City End bowling to Russ.
The match looks to be heading for a draw unless the New South Wales bowlers can pull out something special. That doesn't look likely on this pitch. Join us at 17:00 AET for the final two hours of play.
So with a session to play, the Victorians have survived the 40 minute session before Tea to be no wicket down with 43 runs on the board. Both openers have looked rather untroubled and have put away any loose deliveries.
