Oxford & Bletchingdon Nondescripts had to be content with a share of the spoils after rain ruined any chance of victory at Challow & Childrey in Cherwell League Division 2.

The clash was evenly poised when a thunderstorm flooded the square.

Nondies had posted 156-9, with Garry Adamson running out of partners with his own score on 40. Joe Harris took 4-42.

Challow’s reply got off to an inauspicious start, and they were 35-2 from 16 overs when the weather intervened.
