Bears and Vikings beaten by weather

Watch what little highlights there were at Edgbaston

The NatWest T20 Blast meeting between Birmingham Bears and Yorkshire Vikings at Edgbaston was abandoned without a ball being bowled as downpours dogged the second city.

Rain earlier in the day delayed the evening encounter and the soaked outfield could not recover

The North Division game, originally scheduled to begin at 7pm, could have started as late as 8.58pm but a decision was made to abandon after an inspection at 7.45pm.

Each team takes one point, getting them on the board in this season’s competition.

The Bears sat out last weekend’s Blast-off, while the Vikings fell short against defending champions Northants Steelbacks.
