ACADEMY: Boundaries for Lees - then hailstones

— 1 May 2010

Two boundaries by Alex Lees, above, were the only excitement for Yorkshire Academy whose Solly Sports Yorkshire ECB County Premier League match at York was washed out after 5.5 overs

Cloudy skies welcome the Academy to Clifton Lane, where skipper John Blain called correctly and opted to bat on what looked a good track. Callum Geldart and Lees make a steady start - Lees hitting Bartram twice through mid-wicket – but in Bartram’s third over he had Lees lbw,  which brought Irfan Amjad to the crease.

Irfan faced one ball before hailstones drove the players from the field. An early tea was taken, but over an hour of heavy rain meant that no further play was possible, and the match was andoned.
