Time to wrap up our live coverage of the 30th match of the ongoing WBBL between Sydney Thunder Women and Hobart Hurricanes Women. Rain has the last laugh here as the match is abandoned as it bucketed down for the last 2 hours here.

For now, this is Saptak Sanyal, signing off on behalf of my co-commentator Deepak Prakash and our scorer/analyst Dushyant Madhukar Kumar. Don't go anywhere as we will bring you the live update of the second match of the today's double header of the WBBL.

Meg Lanning: "Got no idea how to go about this, but firstly, I just wanted to say how lucky and privileged I've been to have been able to represent Australia and play the game that I love for so long. I grew up wanting to represent Australia and I had fun playing cricket. I loved it and to be able to do it for 13 years has been an incredible opportunity for me and I'm very thankful for those opportunities. 

I'm sad that it's finishing up, but I'm very much ready for something new. There are a few people who I'd like to thank. [Meg got very emotional while thanking her mom, dad, family members, and teammates] Firstly, Mom and Dad who are here, and my family. 

You go out there as a cricketer, I guess, and you just see the playing part, that they ride the emotions with you and they've always been there to support me no matter what. And I'm very thankful for that. I'd like to thank all the teammates that I've played with for Australia. 

It's been a privilege to play with all of you and as I said before, that's what's made it all so enjoyable and fun and a great experience is being alongside great people and meeting great people and working together. We spend so much time together away.

You get to know each other very well and, yeah, that's made it extra special for me and it's been an incredible journey and I've loved every moment of playing for Australia and I'll miss it. But, yeah, it's time to go and see what else is out there and experience that and I'm looking forward to seeing how that pans out. So I've got no idea how I went with that. But, yeah, that's all I've got to say for a minute."
