Glamorgan v Unicorns, Clydesdale Bank 40, Cardiff July 17, 2011

Weather intrudes at Cardiff

Glamorgan 45 for 2 v Unicorns - no result

Glamorgan's bid to keep in touch with the Clydesdale Bank 40 Group C was dashed by the rain at Cardiff. Put into bat by their opponents the Unicorns, Glamorgan had reached 45 for 2 from 11.1 overs when a third rain interruption proved terminal with the umpires - Mark Benson and Neil Mallender - abandoning the match shortly before 5.30pm. Glamorgan and the Unicorns take a point each from the contest.

The home side had an early scare when Gareth Rees was trapped lbw to the second ball of the match from Neil Saker. Glamorgan were in further trouble when Jim Allenby played a rash shot which saw him caught behind off Glen Querl for 16. Two short rain breaks reduced the game to 38 overs per side and then 37. But just as captain Alviro Petersen and Stewart Walters seemed to be launching a recovery the rain arrived for a third time.
