Weather forced the abandonment of Norfolk's third game in this season's Minor Counties Championship Knockout Trophy competition at Manor Park today.

Norfolk chose to bat but there was a sign of things to come after just one over when the rain and dark clouds forced the players back into the pavilion. They came out 15 minutes later but it was only a matter of time before the rain fell again.

Carl Amos took the upper hand, smashing 35 off the first seven overs, and although he lost partner Carl Rogers for eight in the 13th over, with the score on 51, he found an able replacement in James Spelman.

Amos reached his half century in the 20th over but as the 35th over started, so did the rain and, with Norfolk on 126-1, the players headed off and, more than an hour and a half later, the inevitable conclusion was reached and play was abandoned. Anmos finished on 79 and Spelman 35.
