It took to the mid-innings tea break to arrive – but the threatened rain ended up causing Sandridge’s game against St Albans West Indian to be abandoned as a draw.
The West Indians won the toss and chose to put the Villagers into bat, a decision that appeared to be a wise one.
With characteristic pace, the St Albans bowlers kept Sandridge well-contained, bowling perfect line and length.
By the midpoint of the innings the hosts were 43-3 and with just eight overs left they had advanced as far as 110-6.
However, at the crease through all of this was Albie Kerry whose dogged determination was keeping the scoreboard ticking over.
