Despite most games being started on Saturday, only 10 matches in the Readers Scarborough Beckett Cricket League and Derwent Valley Cricket League were completed, once again the wet weather wrecking the action.

Bright sunshine greeted the cricketers in most games, but the majority were halted by the torrential rain showers which swept through the Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale area on Saturday afternoon and early evening.

The Scarborough first and second teams were also stopped by rain in their Yorkshire League and York League games.

Adam Lyth’s superb 94 from 139 balls, including seven fours and a six, had helped Scarborough to 210-7 from 55 overs, Samrat Sharma adding a patient 64 from 112 balls, but again rain prevented visitors Rotherham starting their reply.

Scarborough 2nds were probably glad the heavy rain wiped out their division three game as they were only able to post 125-8 at Ripon 2nds, Kawsar Ahmed smacking 31 and former skipper Nick Sumpton unbeaten on 25.

Flixton’s division one clash at home to Fenner was washed out with the visitors having reached 173-6 from 36.2 overs.
