Edgbaston clash washed out
Birmingham Bears and Lancashire Lightning endured an evening of frustration at Edgbaston where their Vitality Blast clash was washed out.
Relentless Birmingham rain meant that a mouth-watering tussle between two of the leading sides in the North Group never got off the ground.
The game was officially called off at 5.30pm, an hour before the scheduled start.
The Lightning were denied a chance to bounce back from their defeat at Durham last night while the washout interrupted the Bears' sequence of four straight wins.
The Bears will seek to resume that sequence away to fellow high-fliers Durham on Sunday while the Lightning face Notts Outlaws at Emirates Old Trafford.
