Friday 6pm: Some patchy rain is expected in Wellington for the first Friday night match, with it already falling in the hours prior (2mm as of 6pm NZ time), such that the playing surface should be wet already. The rain is not expected to be particularly heavy, and it is also possible that the rain areas will ease to some degree as the game goes on.
