Rain the winner in cricket

CRICKET fans were frustrated by the weekend weather as Forfarshire’s fixtures against Meigle and Stoneywood-Dyce and Forthill’s home match with Rossie Priory were abandoned due to rain.

One innings was completed in each.

Forfarshire batted first against Stoneywood-Dyce at People’s Park and after losing their top order reached only 49 for four after 14 overs.

Aman Bailwal and Craig Wallace set about rebuilding the innings and punished loose deliveries. A 200-plus total again looked possible.

At Forthill, overnight downpours left the square flooded, but play started around 2 p.m. for a 40-over game against Rossie Priory. Forthill were all out for 171 as the rain returned.

On the back of a fine four-wicket away victory over Strathmore XI at Lochside Park, Forfar, the previous week, Forthill XI picked up another 25 points on Sunday when their home league fixture against Almond Valley was conceded by the visitors, who were unable to raise a team.
