Stanford 20/20 - 14th match

Barbados v Trinidad & Tobago

No result

Match State: Delay - Rain Welcome to the Stanford 2020 Tournament where the first game of the evening between Trinidad & Tobago and Barbados has been delayed by rain Rain has been falling in short bursts all day in Antigua and there does not look to be any change in the next few hours Only 50 minutes is required to complete a match (5 overs each) so at the worts we should get a match in, provided the short showers are not too heavy It takes a while here for the covers to come off and excessive water cleared away The ground does however drain very well We will keep you informed Once again the rain has started to fall fairly heavily and now there are puddles appearing around the edges of the covers There has been a break in the rain, 15:30 local time now, and the ground staff are making moves to start drying up. The only news we do have for you is that they teams are the same as in their previous matches The covers are still on at 16:05, even though the rain has temporarly stopped. Teams are out warming up again, and the ground staff are milling around waiting for a chance to get the covers off The puddles have drained very well and they have two small soppers drying up where they can Seems like we are going to have some sunshine after all, covers are coming off at 16:30 local Toss has just been done with Barbados winnings and fielding The match will start at 17:00 local, no overs will be lost And just as we are about to start, the rain starts again and the covers are on Dont get too excited but the covers are coming off again Pedro Collins will eventually start the match for us, bowling to William Perkins

Rain comes down again, covers on, players off, commentators going to have a drink And that will not be a rum coctail And now it is pouring down, the hardest it has been all day The rain is still falling now at 17:35 Rain still coming down and prospects look grim Tomorrow has been set asside as a reserve day, so in the case of a match not going the full 5 overs each, a new match will be started tomorrow Still no let up in the rain and the first match, between Trinidad & Tabogo and Barbados looks set to be played tomorrow 18:50 and the rain is still coming down News is that both matches have been called off for tonight and both will be replayed tomorrow Until then, we thank you for your patience and hopefully meet again at 15:00 local tomorrow.
