They then reduced Cuckney to 40 for four in the 13th over when the match succumbed to the rain.

In the battle at the foot of the table, Welbeck made a fine start at Attenborough.

With the score on 155 for one, Landa, who struck six fours and three sixes, fell for 70 .

The visitors then collapsed to 199 all out.

Bottom-of-the-table Attenborough were on 14 for one after 5.1 overs when play was abandoned.

Captain and wicketkeeper Tom New top-scored with 33, sharing a partnership of 61 with brother Matt (29).

In reply, Caythorpe faced just one over, making four without loss.

Third-from-bottom Farnsfield were bowled out for 152 in the 48th over of their innings at West Indian Cavaliers.

Wickets then fell at regular intervals.

In Cavaliers’ reply, Mark Hallam grabbed a couple of victims to reduce the home side to nine for two from four overs.
