Rain again!

Any chance of promotion to Division 2 of the Piri Piri League was snuffed out today as our game fell victim to an almighty downpour at Earls Colne…
After losing the toss we were put into the field (no surprise there then), on a wicket which was slow and offered very little help to the pace bowlers.  Eight Ash Green proceeded to serenley to 133 for 0 off 33 overs, a couple of dropped chances, some decent batting and a flatter than usual EC fielding and bowling performance were factors contributing to this, Chambers getting 90 and Polley 52…we did make some progress into reducing them to 163 for 4 off 40 overs…..Will Devitt and Russ Dawes with two wickets apiece….
With 40 overs completed the heavens opened, not even the cover could have prevented puddles forming on the square and just after tea which was taken early we decided to call the game off as their was little chance of completing the game, with poor drying conditions and a definite squelch on the outfield..
