There was only one winner in round 14 of the NCB Premier League season on Saturday and that was the weather.

Cuckney travelled to fourth place Caythorpe in the only one of the day’s matches to start on time. Three balls later they were off for 90 minutes. There would be two other stoppages before play was finally abandoned with 33 overs bowled.

The visitors had made 82-4, thanks to an unbroken 56 run stand between Adam Burgess and Lewis Bramley (30 not out).

Ben Powell took all four wickets to fall at a cost of 34 runs.

At the 2bm Ground, play between Kimberley Institute and Rolls Royce Leisure did not get underway until 3.45pm, with a reduced schedule of 35 overs per side.

In the event, just 20 were bowled, Rolls reaching 65-3, thanks to Shaun Levy’s 39 not out.

The remaining four matches, Plumtree versus Mansfield Hosiery Mills, Radcliffe-on-Trent versus Clifton Village, Welbeck Colliery versus West Indian Cavaliers and NCB Academy versus Ordsall Bridon were all cancelled before a ball could be bowled.

With everyone collecting six points, the table remains unchanged as we head into the final third of the season.
