Cricinfo:

9.25 am: The sun is out, but the whole ground is covered. It will take some time, but I can tell you Jayananda Warnaweera's team will make sure not a second is wasted. Those guys are good, even though the ground is a stone's throw from the sea, which means the drainage can't be too good. Which is why they cover the whole ground, and not just the square

9.20 am: And immediately I have bad news for you, courtesy the honorary Sri Lankan, Tony Greig. He tweets, "Ground staff in Galle starting to remove covers it will take minimum 2 hours".

I don't think the skipper will move down the order, no?

Play will start in about 30 mins if it doesn't rain.
