Es­sex game a washout

Gloucestershire Echo - - CRICKET -

» GLOUCES­TER­SHIRE suf­fered their third suc­ces­sive Vi­tal­ity Blast washout at Es­sex Ea­gles’ Chelms­ford.

Glouces­ter­shire haven’t bowled a ball in their last three trips to Es­sex in T20 cricket, after sim­i­larly rainaf­fected matches in 2017 and 2018.

2019 was added to that list at 8pm as um­pires Neil Bain­ton and Nick Cook called the game off, with­out a toss, after per­sis­tent rain.

In truth, there never ap­peared a chance of any play after steady rain through­out most of the af­ter­noon; with more fore­cast through­out the rest of the evening.

The point means Glouces­ter­shire re­main on one win from their open­ing three fix­tures re­spec­tively.

Glouces­ter­shire have been un­for­tu­nate with the weather so far in the com­pe­ti­tion with two no re­sults and are next in ac­tion to­day (Thurs­day), trav­el­ling to Glam­or­gan.
