Report: Birmingham Phoenix Women v Trent Rockets
Birmingham Phoenix Women and Trent Rockets were denied the chance to kick-start their The Hundred campaigns as the relentless Birmingham rain washed out their meeting at Edgbaston.
Both sides were looking to record their first win after starting their campaign with a defeat, but were kept off the field as a forecast for wretched weather proved spot on.
When the rain paused briefly in the afternoon, Warwickshire’s excellent groundstaff were straight into action to keep alive the slender hopes of squeezing in a truncated game, but the deluge returned with a vengeance just before 4pm, leading to the inevitable call-off.
Better weather is predicted for when the Phoenix next play at Edgbaston on Thursday for the visit of Welsh Fire and only limited tickets are now left via The Hundred website.
