Leeds decider reduced to 45 overs per side

Only 6.5 overs of play was possible since the break with South Africa adding 40/0 during that phase. Quinton de Kock has started to look increasingly comfortable at the crease while Aiden Markram played with a bit of caution. The move from England though seems to be clear. They want to rush through the overs and with spinners keeping it spic and span, Jos Buttler hasn’t had too much thinking to do.

The ground staff have put down the heavy sheets. It suggests they’re expecting it to be a pretty heavy rainfall. The decider has already been pruned to 45 overs a side.
