Captain Carl Rogers is still confident holders Norfolk can progress in the MCCA Knockout Trophy despite seeing their second match washed out in Suffolk.
Having slipped to defeat in their opening encounter against Lincolnshire at Manor Park, Norfolk were keen to get a win in the bag and put the defence of the Trophy back on course.
And although the washout at Ipswich School has left them with just one point and two matches to play in their group, Rogers believes Norfolk's fate is still in their own hands.
Rogers said: 'We were in the situation where we lost last week, so we definitely needed to play and really win all three games.

'So we're just going to look at it now that we've taken a point from the game and hopefully if we win the next two we should still qualify, which I think we will.
'It's definitely not written off. If we do win the next two, then we should have a very good chance I think.
'The ball is in our court at the end of the day.
'You can't do anything about the weather.
'The other game in the group got rained off as well, so we're all on an even keel after that.'
That other game was in Newbury, where Berkshire were due to host Cambridgeshire until the heavens opened.
Berkshire will travel to Manor Park, Horsford on Sunday (11am) for Norfolk's penultimate group fixture.
