"When we played them earlier in the season we restricted them to around 100, so we expected the same outcome again.
"It's been a mixture of circumstance and misfortune that has led to us having so few games in the last few weeks.
"Thankfully, there have been lots of other cancellations in the division, and our destiny is still in our own hands.
"However, despite the frustration and lack of cricket, everyone is keen to play, which was evident in Martyn and Pete's knocks this weekend.
"We're already well into the second half of the season, and it doesn't really feel as if we've started playing properly yet.
"Hopefully the weather will hold out for our game against Haslingfield on Saturday.
