Bay and Rangers washed out
After comfortable wins over St George’s and St David’s on Saturday in their opening Twenty20 matches, Bailey’s Bay and Southampton Rangers had to settle for a rainout result after less than two overs were bowled at Sea Breeze Oval yesterday.
Another rain stoppage sent the teams off the field a second time just before 4pm, this time neither the groundsman nor the Bay players bothered to cover the wicket after the heavy downpour ended a promising contest.
The match was just about to get under way just after the scheduled 3pm start, with the Bay about to bowl the first over when the rain came and sent them off. When the match did get started about 45 minutes later it was reduced to 17 overs per team. Rangers were 22 without loss when the match was called off.
The abandonment was a setback for the two teams who had wins the previous day, with Bay beating St George’s by six wickets after dismissing them for just 64 and then replying with 69 for four in just 8.5 overs.
