In the Bradford Cricket League Division Two, only one match was able to proceed amidst challenging weather conditions. Hunslet Nelson emerged victorious against Wrenthorpe, securing a remarkable nine-wicket win that propelled them to the fourth position in the standings.
The match showcased some outstanding performances from Hunslet Nelson’s bowling unit. Patrick Hinchliffe was the standout performer with impressive figures of 6-42, while spinner Matthew Varley provided valuable support, taking three wickets for 24 runs. As a result of their excellent bowling effort, Wrenthorpe struggled and were bundled out for a mere 71 runs.
Due to the intermittent rain, the match had to be revised, and Nelson was assigned a revised target of 62 runs to chase down. They accomplished the target comfortably, losing only one wicket in the process. Andy McIntosh played a pivotal role in the chase, remaining unbeaten with a stellar knock of 43 runs.
However, adverse weather conditions took a toll on the other scheduled matches. No play was possible in the fixtures between Bowling Old Lane and Lightcliffe, Hartshead Moor and Heckmondwike & Carlinghow, Hopton Mills and Crossflatts, Liversedge and Keighley, as well as Northowram Fields and Buttershaw St Paul’s, leaving those games without a result.
