Match Report

Barnards Green welcomed Conference to their lovely ground with the backdrop of the Malvern Hills to celebrate their 80th anniversary.

In this 40 over match Conference set off at a rapid pace fearful that forecasted showers might interfere with play later on. So all the early batsmen played foreceful attacking shots, leading to premature downfalls. 

Then  a severe thunderstorm broke out with Howell on 22 and Ishtiaq on 13 for a total of 74 in the 12th over. Half an hour later the ground was flooded in parts and eventually the match was abandoned.

Such a pity for the hardworking members of Barnards Green but many thanks for their warm welcome and kind hospitality.
