Rain forced fourth match of Super 50 series between Scorchers and Typhoons to be abandoned after only 14 overs of play was possible on Sunday (May 16) at the North Kildare CC.

Typhoons’ skipper Laura Delany, on her return to the side after having missed a couple of matches in the series due to injury, opted to bat after winning the toss. Openers Rebecca Stokell and Louise Little started sedately scoring 30 runs from the first ten overs.

In the 12th over, Typhoons lost Little for 12 when she was caught by Sophie MacMahon of the bowling off Leah Paul. Just as Stokell was looking to open hitting Lara Maritz for a consecutive boundary and a six in the next over rain arrived and the play was stopped after 14 overs with the Typhoons’ score reading 47 for 1.

Even though rain stopped after a while, the play couldn’t resume with the wet outfield. The umpires were scheduled to inspect the field again at 3 PM local time but the heavens opened up again causing the match to be called off.

Scorchers lead the series 2-1 with two wins from the first two matches while Typhoons registered a win in the third match thanks to a brilliant hundred from stand-in skipper Orla Prendergast.

The next fixture in the Super 50 series will be played on next Sunday (May 23) at the North County CC.

Brief Scores: Typhoons 47/1 in 14 overs (Rebecca Stokell 23*; Leah Paul 1/10) v Scorchers. Match abandoned due to rain.
