Despite the adverse conditions across the county, three games in the Cumbria Cricket League produced results.

All three were in the south of the county while only one of the other three was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

Workington were due to host Lindal Moor but heavy showers throughout the morning put paid to any chance of play.

Furness were comfortable winners against Wigton after bowling out their visitors for 65 in 21.2 overs.

Only two batsmen reached double figures as Jordan Buchanan (5-19) and professional Sachith Pathirana (3-10) posed too many problems.

Ryan Griffiths (38) top-scored in the winning reply and he was the only wicket to fall with the target reached in only 9.4 overs.

Last season’s runners-up, Cleator, were soundly beaten at Dalton in the game which produced the most runs.

Dalton professional Lasith Warnakawaththa Waduge scored 103 not out in a total of 221-5 as they got in a full 50 overs.

Waduge then took 5-9 from just 5.2 overs as Cleator were bowled out for 100 with Adam Hodgson easily top-scoring on 42.

Millom were the third winners when they beat Egremont by 78 runs after the west Cumbrians appeared to have given themselves a chance.

Alex Hodgson took 6-27 as Millom were bowled out for 139 in 43.4 overs and nearly half the total came from the openers Robert Thompson (34) and Sameera Sadamai (31) .

But Egremont struggled even more with only two batsmen in double figures as Robbie Wilson took 5-10 and they were bowled out for 61.

Both Cockermouth and Carlisle appeared to be in good position when their games were rained-off.

At Edenside, visitors Keswick were 36-5 off 18.2 over when play ended.

Home pro Mike Slack had taken 3-15 off nine overs.

Cockermouth were in an even stronger position at Whitehaven after a rain-reduced knock which saw their innings end after 32 overs on 144-6 with Sam Sharp (46 not out) and Greg Platten (34) the main contributors. Veteran Habib Baloch took 3-21.

Whitehaven were in deep trouble at 56-8 off 21 overs when play ended with-leg spinner Mark Middleton taking 6-17.

Next Saturday, Carlisle travel to newly-promoted Egremont.

The club will also host Cumberland’s opening fixtures of the season as they take on Cheshire at Edenside in the first games of the Unicorns Twenty20 Group One matches.

The first of two T20 games will start at 11.30am.
