Australia were 93 for one at tea on Day 1 of the third Test against India at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney on January 7.
Play resumed as the sun shone brightly after a four-hour rain interruption on the opening day of the match.
Groundsmen at the Sydney Cricket Ground worked relentlessly, including using a blower to go with the super-sopper, to get the surface ready for resumption at 3 p.m. local time.
Scheduled close of play has been extended to 6.30 p.m. with extra 30 minutes permitted to ensure minimum overs.
Earlier, young India pacer Mohammed Siraj dismissed the returning David Warner to leave Australia at 21 for one before the inclement weather stopped play barely seven overs into the first day’s action.
The home team batted only 7.1 overs when play was interrupted at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Read from source….
