Shardul continues. Green charges down the track again, smacks it straight past the bowler but a nice fielding at mid-on cuts it for a single only.
Umpires have decided to stop the play with rain coming in.
Seems like a passing shower. Groundsmen are ready to remove the covers now. Covers on the square have been removed. Main cover still there though. Now the main covers is also coming off. Play should start anytime soon. Sky seems to have opened up as well.
Players have come back to the field.

- September 22, 2023 15:40AUS 155/3 in 31 overs
And suddenly winds and overcast conditions have taken over the PCA stadium.

- September 22, 2023 15:284AUS 137/3 in 28 overs
Bumrah continues. Short outside off and Green rides the bounce and slaps this over point for his first boundary. Shortish and angling in on off-stump and Green punches it back to Bumrah. Full and angling in on leg and Green pushes this to mid-on for a dot. Full and going down leg-side and he thinks Green got some bat on that. The umpire is unmoved as that went off the pads and bounced before settling into Rahul’s gloves. Green again wants to guide this to third but gets an inside edge. Beaten! Green’s struggles continues as he is beaten outside off.

- September 22, 2023 15:07AUS 118/3 in 23 overs
Horrible mix-up and even more horrible work from KL Rahul with the gloves as he fails to collect the ball and misses an easy chance to run Labuschagne out. Green pushes this full delivery on leg for a single and it is a no-ball too. Labuschagne heaves this free-hit on leg-side but only gets a single at deepmidwicket.
