"For us it's a must-win game".

PTV Sportws reported that last night, rain deprived Australia of crucial one point when it lashed The Oval. If the game had carried on perhaps they would have had a different opinion. And it was certainly a strain for the spectators, who were forced to don rainwear as frequent showers scudded through, all of them stoutly ignored by the umpires.

"If either one gets in it could be a long day for whoever is in the field.it's a masterclass when they get going".
