The rain held off long enough for West Berkshire’s cricket teams to get results, but it didn’t do them too many favours as all three failed to win.
Falkland and Thatcham Town both drew their shortened matches, while Newbury were beaten by Wokingham 2nds.
It comes after wet weather over the last two weekends had seen the previous fixtures either abandoned or called off altogether.
Falkland were in action against Henley 2nds, who had set a modest target of 152 after Khalid Zafar Malik and Charlie Dale had got four and three wickets respectively.
But Falkland struggled to get going themselves with the bat, with Malik’s not out 20 being the best they could offer.
Only Saad Altaf was unable to get into double figures, being stumped for a duck after facing only two balls.
Falkland eventually got to 101-6 off of 36 overs before the game was cut short, meaning they had to settle for a draw and six points.
They remain sixth in Division One of the Thames Valley Cricket League.
It was a similar story for Thatcham, although the draw may have saved them from a possible defeat.
They were playing against Burnham 2nds, who were all out for 196 in an innings that included a century from one of their players.
Thatcham fought back with a few decent scores of their own – Peter Spriggs hitting 45, Steve Bartholomew 39 and Will Wright 30.
But with Thatcham on 151-9 and still 45 runs short with one wicket remaining, time ran out and they held on for a draw.
The eight points they earned helped to keep them seventh in Division 2B.
It was another tough afternoon for Newbury though, as they lost to Wokingham 2nds by six wickets.
Newbury had posted a total of 154 from their innings with the bat, with Martin Walker (35) and Charlie Anstey (32) the best of the scorers.
However after getting Wokingham to 50-4, the partnership of Jack Fisher and Simon Myles proved too much, with knocks of 41 and 66 respectively getting them over the winning line.
Newbury remain bottom of Division 3A, now further adrift of safety after nearest rivals Chiswick and Whitton beat Cove 2nds.
All three sides return to action this Saturday as Falkland visit Boyne Hill, Thatcham travel to Royal Ascot, and Newbury host Fleet.
