Second XI fixture abandoned at Southport
Lancashire’s Second XI One-Day Trophy fixture today at Southport and Birkdale Cricket Club has been abandoned after just 10 balls due to an unfit pitch.
As a result of heavy rain in the area over the last couple of days, the pitch for today’s fixture against Worcestershire was damper than expected. The umpires inspected the pitch before the game and play did start on time at 11am.
Worcestershire won the toss and elected to bowl first and Lancashire were 2/2 after 1.4 overs when umpires abandoned the game.
After both teams agreed, a new match will start on a different wicket, which was used in a club game on Saturday, with a start time of 12:30pm. It will be a 42-over fixture.
