Yvette - any team news for both games tomorrow? 1st and 2nd teams.

Play abandoned

Well, from here is looks like they're shaking hands. That's match abandoned

5:54pm

Very unfortunate that the weather is winning. Was looking forward to seeing my favourite team in full flow. Sad for young Paul Coughlin if he can't get back on to bowl and going for 15 in his only over. This happens in one day lotteries and he'll have the chance to hit back tomorrow.

safcluke

Hampshire through. Expect this game to be cancelled now.

bryn

is kirk grafting today?

Rain...

Lancs batters look in great form today. Wonder what they'll be like tomorrow against proper bowlers?

chrissafc

good luck durham

Toss result

The toss has been won by Durham who will field first - start at 5pm, 18 over game

4:47pm

Latest

The umpires are looking to start at 5pm, providing there is no further rain.

4:41pm

chrissafc

its all its done here for the last few hours hence why we didnt risk going through

myboyharry

Looks to me as though it will be drizzling on and off for a while yet. Even if it got started it would be interesting too see how long it lasted before they were off again.

myboyharry

Drizzling i'm afraid 300 yards from the ground. doesnt look promising. We were just about too set off for the ground.

chrissafc

seems very odd they waited so long to get the game underway.

Update

The rain started as we went out for the toss so it has been delayed.

4:27pm

jojo

how is it looking for a 4.45pm start - any more rain?

BrianT

Men in Durham County Council jackets emptying machines on Thursday just after game ended. Who do I write to?

chrissafc

those car park machines have been causing loads of trouble. queues have been ridiculous

BrianT

Just shows how localised the weather is, in central Sunderland it has hardly rained at all today. On my way, assume car park machines are full again and parking will be free!

News fro the middle

Providing there is no more rain play will start at 4.45pm. It will be a 19 over per side match.

3:50pm

stuartp

If Hants lose today but Surrey is washed out then Hants will still top the table.

stuartp

If Surrey win and Hants draw it will be down to run rate in this group. Hants are clear of Surrey by around .3 so Surrey would need a big win to turn it around. If they did though it would be dependant on the results of Sussex and Warwicks who could both overtake them for best placed 2nd.

chrissafc

am i right in thinking hampshire may not qualify with a draw?

Update

The covers are coming off and there will be an inspection at 3.50pm.

Noticed Basil D'Olivera's grandson is playing for Worcs (of course) vs Lancs today.

brandonia

Hetton Lyons called their tie against Brandon off yesterday in the DDSL..... Nowt to do with the pitch I reckon though, couldn't get a side out by all accounts. They get away with murder.

manurule175

Speaking of Lancashire Tom Smith has hit 105 of 44 balls !

maidenover

I believe the supporters club asked for free admission due to the switch and LCCC offered 4 day admission for I believe £20 (not 100% certain of figure) but you had to book in advance

chrissafc

totally agree. i was at a home game the other week, and over heard someone saying the person who runs the supporters club has asked lancs cc to provide free tickets for those put out. not sure how true etc that is though

Tynevalleyblackcat

Makes it even worse Chris. LCCC Taking the profits from hotel bookings and then shifting the game to 40 miles away. They should pay for the bloody transfer bus.

chrissafc

some are even booked in at the hotel at the cricket ground.

chrissafc

someone i know is staying close to old trafford, said he will make a point of popping in and seeing what work is exactly going on at old trafford

chrissafc

clearly worried after worcester hammered them at old trafford.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Seems to me that they switch their home game with us to Liverpool most seasons. Hopefully we won't have to worry about next season!!

Tynevalleyblackcat

I hope the sun shines all we week and tonk them to within an inch of their lives!!

chrissafc

i know a few people who have booked hotels in manchester. fingers crossed the lads/weather play a part this week in relegating lancs.

maidenover

only very very light drizzle now in C L S

maidenover

Club supporters have a bus going to liverpool sorry manchester tomorrow then having to be bussed to liverpool everyday from manchester due to Lancs switching match to try and gain advantage and avoid relegation

chrissafc

sadly not

safcluke

anyone going tomorrow?

manurule175

Leicestershire flying! 25 of the over!

Update

Still raining here - no news until it stops!

2:03pm

maidenover

whats happenining no official word as yet fro DCCC ... water got in the works ??

chrissafc

hampshire will be desperate for a game

SixSixEight

Shame for the lads if there is no game. Also rather glad I did not make the trip up. Hope conditions are better for the 2nds semi tomorrow!

stuartp

BBC says start delayed. Not expecting any play today, but hanging on in hope anyway.

parky

looking at the rain radar, I cannot see the game taking place at all. Very heavy rain for hours to come

chrissafc

yeah i thought it was a wind up when i heard their was a pitch inspection then 5 mins later the match was off. see what happens as i'm sure the club will investigate. the rain was moderate, not what i'd expect to call a game off at our ground though. very odd

Tynevalleyblackcat

Sunderland RCA and Washington were off. Did not seem that bad to me when I got to Sunderland but my mate who lives there reckoned it had been raining all night and all morning. Just think they called it off too early myself.

chrissafc

concerning if our pitch cannot handle that mind. ryhope and many other non league teams got their games on.

Tynevalleyblackcat

19mm is about the same as hit Newcastle a few weeks back and caused me a 5 hour journey home from work and left the coast road under 10 feet of water!!

chrissafc

i heard its raining heavily

foxbat

Toss should have happened by now shouldn't it? So any word?

chrissafc

local non league games went ahead. they should ask durham ccc if they can hire the durham ground staff

chrissafc

19mm of rainfall on saturday in sunderland.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Chris, SAFC's pitch was perfectly playable apparently at 2:50pm on Saturday. There is not a lot the ground staff can do if the ref decides to call it off at 1:40pm!!

chrissafc

durham ccc have excellent ground staff

chrissafc

i'm sure the club will do all it can to get the game on...... unlike sunderland afc

foxbat

Well we've decided not to go. So hopefully that'll jinx the weather into cooperating.

Update

It's drizzling lightly at the minute, but fingers crossed it will pass!

12:46pm

chrissafc

whats the weather like at present?

chrissafc

not sure if im going, forecast is terrible

brandonia

Its a good drying day in Brandonia, windy.

davidhchess

Me too, but the forecast is not too encouraging.

foxbat

Hmm, might come along then.

Update

Weather is fine - it's a little grey but bring a jumper and you'll be fine!

11:19am

foxbat

Hows the weather looking?
