Persistent rain wiped out most of the game on the third day of the first test between England and New Zealand at Lords.
Wet weather prevented is forecast for most of Friday afternoon in London.
The rain interrupted what is about to be a narrow competition, and England 111-2 responded to the New Zealand 378.
Better weather is forecast for Saturday and Sunday, the last two days of the match.
The option to make up for lost time at the beginning of those days was rejected, and extras were added at the end of each day.
Devon Conway 200 on his test debut was the cornerstone of New Zealand’s total, while Rory Burns and Joe Root will continue at 59 and 42 respectively for England.
The second and final test of the series begins in Edgbaston on June 10th.
