Pet peeve time: seriously, if today's going to be a write-off, why not just tack a day on and make tomorrow Day One? Unless Lord's is already booked (haven't checked) what's to be lost here? Sure, it'll mess up broadcasters schedules but just because there might be difficulty broadcasting the game doesn't necessarily mean that you shouldn't play the game. A little bit of flexibility from all sides and we could achieve the sporting contest we all ostensibly want.

(Edit - have checked now, and in fact Monday is the MCC vs MCC match. So, in this instance, there's nothing to be done. But in general, I'm sticking with my point. Also, always check first.)
