Rain has limited the play in Day One of the Sheffield Shield match between the West End Redbacks and the NSW Blues.

  • The Redbacks lost the toss and were sent into field and bowled quite economically in the opening overs.
  • Spinner Ben Manenti took the only wicket of the day, getting Blake Nikitaras caught at mid-off for 32.
  • Only 39 overs were bowled before the rain started just after the lunch break, pausing the match when NSW were 1-80.
  • It took until 5pm local time for play to restart and only seven more overs were bowled until bad light paused play again, with stumps called not long after.
  • Play will restart on Day Two 30 minutes earlier to make up for lost time.
