Loughborough – match abandoned

Tuesday 14th April 2009

Once again, Canterbury was affected by steady rain during the morning and the decision was made at lunchtime to abandon the match.

Prospects of play for Thursday: It rained steadily from 9:00am to 2:00pm and as a consequence the outfield got a soaking. There is also a fair amount of water lying on top of the covers which needs to be removed before the covers can be taken off.

Following a 2:30pm inspection, the umpires have decided to re-inspect at 3:30pm.

After the 3:30pm inspection, the umpires have decided that no play would be possible today.
