For only the second time this summer rain had a big effect on the EAPL programme, with the games involving Great Witchingham and Horsford both being curtailed by untimely downpours.
In each case an interesting game of cricket was ruined, with the results of both matches in the balance at the time a halt was called.
At Walcis Park visitors Frinton made 264 after being asked to bat first, with Suffolk pair Michael Comber (86) and Kyran Young (83) putting on 120 for second wicket to lay the foundation for a more than useful total. The Witches had reached 68-3 in 21 overs, with James Spelman going well on 36, when the rain arrived.
Over at Burwell Horsford battled their way to 192 in the 52nd over as Jay Ghelani returned the impressive figures of 5-25.
The visitors were grateful for a fourth wicket partnership of 85 between Stephan Marillier (56) and Robbie Bridgstock (55), with Oscar Binny's 25 the next highest score.
