CRICKET: Rain stops Saturday play across the county

Have your say

RAIN wiped out every single Saturday cricket fixture in the Lincs ECB Premier League, South Lincs and Border League and West Norfolk League.

Friday’s torrential downpour was the catalyst for the washout, leaving pitches across the county in shocking states.

The Lincs ECB Premier League has now lost more than a third of all scheduled games, with Market Deeping the worst hit with six of their 12 games rained off.

Around 45 per cent of all games have been abandoned so far in South Lincs and Border League this season too.

In Division One, Billingborough have lost six games and Bourne 2nd have missed seven out of their 12.

However, Long Sutton 2nd did manage a one-wicket win over Market Overton 2nd in Rutland League Division Seven on Sunday.

They just managed to chase down the home team’s 160-7 in 44 overs, reaching 161-9.

In Division Four, St Ives conceded against Sutton’s first team.
