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.

By the time a mix-up in communication had brought about his run-out, he had accumulated 62, the highlight of the innings.

It helped Sandridge to a total of 156-9 for their 50 overs.

For St Albans the star of the show was Damon Blackwood who picked up four wickets.
