Rain washes out T20 Group A Final

Rain washes out T20 Group A Final


The Gordon Rigg T20 Cup final between Hanging Heaton and Woodlands had to be abandoned due to rain without a ball being bowled.

Twice the players were ready to start the game, but the rain returned on each occasion to prevent any play.

Now the game is to be rescheduled and played under the Wagon Lane floodlights on a midweek date in August.

League Chief Executive Alan Birkinshaw said: “We are working with the match hosts Bradford & Bingley and the two clubs to come up with a date.

“Everybody involved wants the final to be a spectacle and it wasn’t possible today. Playing under the floodlights will add a new dimension. We will be substituting the white ball for the pink ball that was due to be used today and the sight screens will be black.

“We staged all the T20 finals from 2009 until 2015 under the lights at Wagon Lane and it will be good to do it again. Night games create an entirely different atmosphere for the players and spectators.

“The Bradford & Bingley club worked so hard to put on today’s Finals Day and I would like to encourage all cricket followers to support them when the game is rescheduled.”
