Wet outfield forces the match to be called off
by CricketArchive Staff Reporter

Ground:Headingley, Leeds
Scorecard:England v West Indies
Event:West Indies in England 2009

DateLine: 21st May 2009


The umpires felt that the ground was unfit for the first one-day international between England and West Indies at Headingley after the heavy rainfall. The match was abandoned shortly after 3pm, after heavy rain left the outfield saturated. The two umpires, Nigel Llong and Steve Davis, conducted several pitch inspections but although the weather itself improved, the outfield remained drenched and it prevented any chance for the play to happen.
