Inclement weather prevented Nottinghamshire Women from continuing their winning streak in the East Midlands Group of the Women’s County T20, with only 20 overs of play possible against Lincolnshire after a positive start on a damp Early May Bank Holiday.
Sophie Munro led the bowling attack to reduce the hosts to 105 for seven off their allotted overs before rain came and prevented any further play in either of the scheduled games.
The 19-year-old reduced the visitors to 13 for two after Notts had won the toss and elected to field, bowing Rebecca Brooker (0) with the final ball of the first over before dismissing Kathryn Bryce in the third over, caught by Maddie Ward for 8.
Sonia Odedra got the next breakthrough, bowling Olivia Clark (14), but it wouldn’t stop Lincolnshire who sat handsomely on 61 for three after 9 overs.
Following some middle-over bludgeoning from Bethany Harmer (47), accompanied by Amy Halloran (17), the opposition's momentum was checked at the death.
Lincs managed only seven runs from the final four overs, a period catalysed by skipper Odedra running out Halloran in the 16th over.
Amelia Kite trapped Harmer in front eight balls later, and wickets fell in each of the remaining overs, Aimee Simms run out by Rebecca Widdowson and Sammi-Jo Boothright pinned by Kite for her second wicket before mother nature had her say during the interval.
The two sides received a point for each abandoned fixture, meaning Nottinghamshire still sit top of the table with rain also hampering chances of play between Derbyshire and Leicestershire, the latter of whom host Notts next.
