The Welsh Dragons suffered their fourth washout in 11 days as their Clydesdale Bank 40 floodlit game against Somerset at the SWALEC Stadium was abandoned without a ball bowled.

Persistent rain meant umpires Rob Bailey and David Millns had no choice but to call the match off at 5:30pm, 50 minutes after the scheduled start.

The CB40 abandonment follows the Dragons losing three Friends Life t20 fixtures to rain since July 2. The SWALEC is due to host that competition’s finals day on August 25.

It was the Dragons’ 13th entire day of cricket this season to be lost without a ball bowled.

The hosts remained second from bottom in a group propped up by Somerset, who at least got off the mark with the point each.
