Rain can’t stop play


HARDY cricketers were caught on a sticky wicket when torrential rain hit as they tried to smash the world record for non-stop play.

The thundersto­rm arrived when the players of Blunham Cricket Club in Bedfordshi­re were 75 hours into their 168-hour record bid.

But the club tweeted: “The lads are still going strong.” The match is on course to finish on Saturday.
