CHESHIRE COUNTY CRICKET LEAGUE MAC­CLES­FIELD ............ 0 ALDER­LEY EDGE... 172-5 Match aban­doned due to rain

a few overs later Alder­ley brought up 100 at the half­way point in their in­nings.

How­ever, just as things looked com­fort­able for Alder­ley, Cut­bill struck with a fine de­liv­ery to Day, trap­ping him LBW for 69, leav­ing the score on 1022.

As Alder­ley skip­per, Adam Wor­rall, joined Wilkin­son, there were quite a few rain clouds around.

Their part­ner­ship was in­ter­rupted on many oc­ca­sions for short rain de­lays as the East Cheshire cli­mate served up some trop­i­cal showers, with­out the heat­wave af­ter!

How­ever, the rain breaks did not seem to af­fect the Alder­ley bats­men as they con­tin­ued to add vi­tal runs, in a match

‘Day, af­ter a watch­ful start, then be­gan to take a lik­ing to any full bowl­ing’

be­came sat­u­rated and a mas­sive clean-up op­er­a­tion en­sued. But the rain kept com­ing and even­tu­ally, with Alder­ley on 172-5 af­ter 40.4 overs, the match was aban­doned.

Both sides take seven
