Seconds Pick Up Point After Trophy Game Falls Victim To The Elements

Seconds Pick Up Point After Trophy Game Falls Victim To The Elements

Worcestershire Seconds had to be content with a point from their Second Eleven Trophy clash with Durham at Kidderminster which was abandoned because of rain.

There were several interruptions for rain but Durham finally totalled 283-5 from 35 overs before the final stoppage ended hopes of a positive result for either side.

Worcestershire have now a total of three points from their opening two games following their win over Unicorns at the same venue on Wednesday.

Durham elected to bat and openers Graham Clark and Jack Clark figured in an opening stand of 158 in 23 overs.

Graham Clark had an early let off, dropped at cover on nought from the second ball of the innings from Liam Smith.

He eventually made 104 from 74 balls with three sixes and 14 fours – one of four wickets for skipper Alexei Kervezee.

Graham Clark was dismissed for 64 from 68 balls with two sixes while Calum MacLeod provided even more impetus with 54 off 27 deliveries with four sixes and three fours.

But then the heavens opened and the game was finally abandoned at 5.45pm.
