Nottinghamshire Outlaws skipper David Hussey had won the toss and elected to bowl first against the Somerset Sabres in the second of todays Friends Provident t20 semi finals at the Rose Bowl.
The game will get under way 15.50 after a 50 minute delay because of heavy rain with both sides facing 20 overs; if further rain falls the length of the game will shortened with the Final scheduled to start at 19.15.
Play was due to start at 15.00 but the rain, which started to fall during the end of the Hampshire Royals 6 wicket victory over the Essex Eagles has forced the game to be delayed by 30 minutes.
