Scottish domestic calendar decimated by the weather

SCOTTISH cricket suffered its first complete washout of the season on Saturday when all sixteen scheduled CSL fixtures were called-off.
The Granite City derby between Aberdeenshire and Stoneywood-Dyce in the Eastern Premier Division was the only game which got underway.
But the Mannofield clash lasted for less than eighteen overs before it too was wiped-out.
Saturday’s washout brings to 36 the total number of games that have been hit by one of the wettest starts to a season in living memory.
Western Premier Division outfit Drumpellier have been among the hardest-hit by the weather, the Coatbridge outfit having completed just two out of six games so far.
SMRH and Corstorphine in the Eastern First Division have also managed to dodge the rain on only two occasions.
The league season reaches the halfway stage on Saturday with more than a third of scheduled fixtures having already been lost to the weather.
