Gloucestershire v Glamorgan T20 at Bristol

Rain delayed the start of Glamorgan’s Vitality Blast T20 match with Gloucestershire at Bristol until 2015 with the home side winning the toss and inviting Glmaorgan to bat first. However, just as the players were about to take to the field the rains returned with the contest being called off half an hour later.

Heavy rain had fallen over the ground during the afternoon and with more forecast, umpires David Millns and Hassan Adnan decided to delay the toss ahead of the start of tonight’s game which was scheduled to get underway at 1830. A further inspection was planned at 6pm but shortly before they went out to the middle the precipitation returned.

The rains eased again around 1845 allowing the groundstaff to start the mopping up operations, and for the umpires to make a further inspection at 1945 at which it was decided the game would start as an 11-overs a side game at 2015. The Welsh county duly made three changes to their side which lost to the Hampshire Hawks last Friday evening at Cardiff, with Michael Neser replacing James Harris, Alex Horton making his 1st XI debut in place of the injured Chris Cooke and James Weighell returning in place of Michael Hogan. The side in full was – David Lloyd (capt), Sam Northeast, Colin Ingram, Kiran Carlson, Eddie Byrom, Alex Horton (wkt), Dan Douthwaite, Andrew Salter, Michael Neser, James Weighell and Prem Sisodiya.

However, just as the players and umpires were about the take to the field the rains returned with no play being possible and the match being declared a "No Result" at 2035.
