T20: Showers at Shifnal win the day

23 Apr 2023

Cheshire were once again left kicking their heels and are yet to start their 2023 campaign as rain at Shifnal put paid to their T20 double header with Shropshire.

After a washout last week against Northumberland, Cheshire must now hope it's third time lucky when they're due to face Staffordshire at Nantwich on Bank Holiday Monday 1 May.

Poor weather all week made conditions tricky at Shifnal but there was a glimmer of hope as a toss was made for the first game - with Shropshire opting to bowl - before conditions deteriated.

And eventually, despite attempts from umpires and groundstaff to get some play, both games were abandoned.

T20 Group 1 did however finally get underway as Northumberland took on Staffordshire with one win each.
