Play was set to resume 2:45 pm, today Thursday, in the fourth-round West Indies four-day cricket match between Jamaica Scorpions and Trinidad and Tobago Red Force at Sabina Park.
Only 20 minutes of play was possible because the pitch was deemed unsafe for batting due to several balls bouncing steeply.
This morning, the Scorpions won the toss and sent the Red Force to bat first in sunny conditions on a surface with live grass.
However, play was halted at 10:20 am due to complaints about the pitch.
Both openers Kyle Hope (two) and left-hander Jeremy Solozano (11) went caught to pace bowler Oshane Thomas while playing at short deliveries outside the off stump.
But play was stopped with the Red Force on 23-2 when the umpires heeded calls from the batsmen that the bounce was too steep.
The not out batsmen are left-hander Darren Bravo, on six not out, Jason Mohammed, who is yet to face a ball.
There was an inspection by match officials at 11:20 am after which ground staff did some work on the surface. Another inspection was carried out at 12:50 pm.
