Seconds Also Endure Blank Day At Taunton Vale

Seconds Also Endure Blank Day At Taunton Vale

It's not just the Worcestershire first team who are currently being frustrated by the elements.

Worcestershire Seconds had to endure another day without any cricket when the opening day of the three day friendly with Somerset at Taunton Vale was called off without a ball being bowled.

Steady rain left the umpires with no choice but to abandon play for the day.

The two teams will be hoping for better luck tomorrow when the forecast is more encouraging.

Worcestershire Seconds have now had three successive days cricket washed out.

A 40 over friendly with Durham at Richmondshire CC last Monday was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

Then the Second Eleven Trophy match between the two sides at the same venue on the following day suffered the same fate.

Their only action so far in 2016 was an internal squad match featuring members of the Academy intake and the County's young professionals at Kidderminster 11 days ago.

Taunton Vale also produced a wash-out for the Worcestershire first eleven in a two-day fixture with their Somerset counterparts two weeks ago.
