The bowl out is about to start judging by the pictures on the big screen.
The floodlights are on inside the ground, but more rain could prevent any further play today.
We can't get in to watch the bowl out, but are told it will be shown on the big screen in the ground. The format will be five players from each team bowling two deliveries then one delivery sudden death if needed.
Bowl out will be indoors.
Confirmation that there will be a bowl out at 4.40pm
The covers are still on with just ten minutes before Wimbledon's deadline. Time to prepare for a bowl out.
It's drizzling again at the Oval where the odds on a bowl out are shortening all the time.
The covers remain on at the Oval, so I can't see Banbury batting again. Wimbledon will be gutted if this goes to a bowl-out.
ECB twitter: If Banbury are not batting again by 4pm, their innings will be over. If Wimbledon are not batting by 4.25, the game is scratched and bowl-out follows!
The second semi-final is scheduled for 3.25pm. That won't happen, but it remains to be seen how long Banbury's match can be allowed to last for.
The umpires are discussing the best way forward with the ECB. Waiting to find out what happens next.
That may be it for the innings. A real shame for Banbury. Wimbledon need to be able to bat for 5 overs for a match to be completed. Should they get out to the middle, they will probably need far fewer than that.
They have gone off for rain with four balls remaining! 27-5
West caught out. 27-5

Another wicket! Ryan goes 22-4
Banbury 20-3 off 5 overs.

Another dot for Snape. That's seven in a row, before Haupt pushes single

Good first over from Mark Smith. Banbury 4-1
Hawkes bowled 3-1
Nathan Hawkes goes aerial for two
Craig Haupt hits single off first ball
Wimbledon are out on the field and here come the Banbury openers.
No idea what a par score might be. Banbury will just have to whack everything!
The floodlights are on. Wimbledon will bowl first after winning the toss.
Match will get under way at 2.15pm with a seven-over shoot out.
The players are out to warm up again as the covers come off.
Matches can be a minimum of five overs. Hopefully it won't come to that.
The rain has now stopped, but no news yet on a start time
Sadly it is raining again here at the Oval. Very frustrating for everyone.
Wimbledon will be favourites when play gets under way, but Banbury have raised their game in each round they have played in.
Mark Butcher on Sky suggesting play could now start around 1.15pm
Out comes the roller. This could be a more positive sign.
The covers come back on as the rain comes down. The players abandon their warm-ups and head for the dressing rooms.
Both sides are now going through their paces. With the weather forecast not great, this could be a very stop-start day.
The match has already been put back to a 12.55pm start and made an 18-over contest.
Banbury take on holders Wimbledon in the first semi-final, while the day is being televised on Sky Sports. Banbury will play in yellow, with Wimbledon in maroon. Wimbledon are warming up on the outfield.
