Rain plays spoilsport at Edgbaston
by CricketArchive Staff Reporter

Ground:Edgbaston, Birmingham
Scorecard:Warwickshire v Middlesex
Player:DJ Malan, NRD Compton
Event:NatWest Pro40 League 2009

DateLine: 15th July 2009


The NatWest Pro40 Division Two match between Warwickshire and Middlesex was abandoned after just two overs at Edgbaston.


Warwickshire stand-in-skipper skipper Tim Ambrose, won the toss and opted to field first, only to see play halted torrential rains after just one legitimate delivery.


The players came back again after a hour-long stoppage and the match then was reduced to a 34-overs-a-side contest. But only after 11 further balls rain returned with Middlesex 10-0 and both openers, Nick Compton and Dawid Malan, unbeaten on four.


The groundstaff worked hard but a further shower just before a 7.30pm inspection left umpires George Sharp and Trevor Jesty with no alternative but to abandon.
