Rain wins in Southern League games
HEAVY rain wiped out ever game in the Southern League involving sides from north Hampshire on Saturday.
Basingstoke and North Hants’ top-of-the-table clash with New Milton did not even start at May’s Bounty.
However, the second XI managed to complete an innings at Fair Oak.
Here the home side reached 202-8, with spinner Keith Harris (3-40) the pick of the visiting bowlers, while Dan King took 2-20.
Basingstoke reply lasted only 14 balls, before the rain caused the game to be abandoned.
At the time the Bountymen were 0-2, with both openers Richard Vinn and Mo Rizwan back in the pavilion.
Hartley home game with Totton and Eling II ended after five overs, by which time the home side had reached 19-1 with Matt Kerr (10) being the man out on the last ball of the game, while Jack Hersh was unbeaten on nine.
Hook and Newnham Basics managed to play 6.3 overs, as they entertained Andover and were 19-1 when the rain came.
Opener Jordan Hobday was unbeaten on 14, with Kieran Thomson was the only man out for 2 after being trapped leg before by Mike Adams.
Heavy rain and then thunder and lightning left the ground waterlogged and play was abandoned.
