Norfolk’s Minor Counties Championship match at Lincolnshire abandoned

Norfolk's cricketers suffered further frustration when no play was possible on the final day of their Minor Counties Championship match against Lincolnshire at Cleethorpes.

The Eastern Division game was abandoned at 11am - following a first day washout and just 28.5 overs of play on the second day, in which the home side reached 88 for five in their first innings.

Norfolk collected six points and Lincolnshire four from a draw.

So Norfolk have 15 points from their opening two matches after the game against Suffolk at Bury St Edmunds in June also finished in a rain-affected draw.

Their Championship campaign resumes when the Manor Park festival gets under way with the visit of Staffordshire for a three-day match starting on Sunday, July 22.
