Report: Sparks v Western Storm, Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy
Central Sparks and Western Storm suffered frustration in the Second City as their Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy fixture at Moseley CC was washed out.
Despite the field at Streetsbrook Road having taken four inches of rain since Saturday, the ground was ready for a prompt start at 11am until a ferocious downpour struck at 10.45am.
A series of further torrential showers followed, leaving standing water on sections of the outfield and leading to the match being abandoned at 1.15pm.
Sparks were denied the chance to build on their strong start to the resumption of the RHT which had sprung them to second place while the washout cost Storm a much-needed chance to garner points to climb away from the foot of the table.
The frustration was deep too for Moseley CC who were hosting their first Sparks first team game. They did everything possible to get the match on but were defeated by the tropical downpours.
