Fourteen year old left-arm spinner Bailey Parratt, pictured, with a 5-11 return, was on the brink of bowling Fawley to a critical Southern Premier League Division 2 victory at Hartley Wintney when the weather turned sour.
Among Parratt’s victims was HW top scorer Danny Plume (47).
Three of his other victims were cleaned bowled and a fourth trapped leg before wicket.
The North Hampshire side were in dire straits at 125-9 when heavy rain caused the match to be abandoned six overs before tea.
The washout was a blow to Fawley’s survival plans – the ‘no result’ leaving them second from bottom in the table with two games left.
