The weather wreaked havoc with the fixture list in the Cumbria Cricket League last weekend, with only four of the 15 fixtures surviving the deluge.

Two of those were the two Division Two matches scheduled for Sunday and there was a close contest between the 2nd XIs of Millom and Cleator, with the hosts eventually going down by five wickets.

Millom were bowled out for 152, despite a brilliant unbeaten 77 from middle order batsman Daniel Mackie, as David Glover and Gary Hall both took three wickets for Cleator, who chased down their target with 20 deliveries to spare.

Barrow 2nd XI were defeated by Egremont 2nd XI by 61 runs after they were rolled out for just 99 in reply to the away side’s 160-7.

Opener Vickram Balakrishnan top-scored with 38 for Egremont, as Ben Carr took 4-30 for Barrow, but their reply never got going as only captain David Noonan (25) managed to score above 20.

Last Saturday, a depleted Dalton 2nd XI were defeated by seven wickets at Whitehaven 2nd XI after they were skittled for 43 in a match where they could only field ten players. Despite Marc Gibson quickly taking two wickets, the hosts reached their meagre target in ten overs.

The only match in the Premier Division to survive saw Wigton claim a vital three-wicket win at fellow strugglers Egremont, as they chased down 144 thanks to 46 from Lewis Little.
