Whalers CC v Drovers CC – 7th June 2009

Abandoned – Rain


A most unsatisfactory abandonment. A gloriously sunny June day, but torrential overnight rain meant that the ground-staff deemed the pitch unplayable. Most present deemed that the wicket would have been ok after about 3pm, but our protestations fell on unreceptive ears. All the more disappointing as we seemed to be the only team playing that day whom the ground-staff hadn’t contacted in advance, meaning many playing (including some of the oppo travelling from North Wales) had completely wasted days.





Man of the match:

Champagne moment:

Muppet moment:                                Dan Osgood for failing to predict the weather.
