Birmingham Phoenix 84 for 5 vs Northern Superchargers - Match abandoned
Torrential rain brought an abrupt end to the Hundred match at Headingley between Northern Superchargers and Birmingham Phoenix with just 62 balls possible in Phoenix's first innings. With puddles forming on the outfield the umpires were left with no choice but to call a halt to proceedings after a heavy shower engulfed Leeds.
It was frustrating for the hosts who had got themselves into a decent position during the play that was possible with Reece Topley removing opener Jacob Bethell for 0 in his opening set of deliveries.That brought England star Ben Duckett to the middle and he introduced himself with a ramped shot for six before hitting an unbeaten 34 off 26 balls before the rain came.
Spin also played its part with Matthew Short removing Dan Mousley and Shadab Khan in quick succession with England's Adil Rashid claiming the wicket of Jamie Smith who was bowled for 13 with the visitors 84 for 5 at the close.
England batter Harry Brook was also involved after making himself available for Superchargers' opening fixture, following the conclusion of the Ashes on Monday.
