Groundsmen in Great Missenden, Hertfordshire, said the away game could not go ahead early this morning due to overnight rain that left the pitch looking like “a swamp”.
Both sides were duly notified. It left King’s Road unsure whether they will pick up 3 points in their defence of their LPL title or whether the game will be arranged.
After a convincing win last week for Cairns Fudge, King’s Road need every point if they are to retain the title and could potentially have picked up 10 today with a win.
LPL rules state: “Games abandoned due to weather to be rearranged. If rearranging is impossible both teams score 3 points plus any bonus points scored prior to abandonment.”
However, at this stage of the season it will be difficult for the Dors to re-book the pitch Pelicans Cricket Club as the host club’s calendar is already filled.
