Weather interferes again

Published: Wednesday, 23 August 2017

Poor weather, which dogged Bucks for much of their Unicorns Counties Championship campaign, ruined their final game against Cumberland at Sedbergh School, which was abandoned as a draw.
The result means that for the second year in a row, Bucks failed to secure an Eastern Division victory, but they gleaned enough points from the games they did play to finish eighth of the ten teams.
Bucks were on the back foot for much of the game after Cumberland, who had been put in to bat, made 319-6 on the first day. The innings was dominated by Gary Pratt, who showed he was more than able substitute fielder for England, by making 143 not out.
Bucks, in contrast, managed to make only 176 all out, as Cumberland's left arm spinner Toby Bulcock returned the amazing figures of 8-39 from 30 overs.
Only opener Patrick Castleden, boosted by his big hundred in the previous game, offered resistance with 66.
Cumberland were 56-3 in the second innings at the end of the second day.
But no further play was possible as heavy overnight and morning rain completely washed out the final day.
