On Sunday Wheathampstead took on Alburey Entertainers in a 40-over match but a potentially exciting second innings was washed out. Wheato batted first and posted 230-6 before tea. Peter Robbins (18) supported well in an opening stand of 74 with colt Harry Swan, who blasted his way to 80, including 11 fours and a six.
Dave Dabare raced to 30 before holing out at point but there was no respite for Alburey as Dave Stevens continued as he left off last week, hitting eight fours and two sixes in his 52 not out. A nice cameo innings by Steve Winton (20 not out) took the Wheato score to 230-6.
The heavens opened once more and unfortunately the game was cancelled with the Wheato bowlers chomping at the bit.
