Match abandoned: Glamorgan 1pt, Warwickshire 1pt
Warwickshire were forced to settle for a point as rain ruined their floodlit Twenty20 game against Glamorgan.
Anyone with doubts about Glamorgan's readiness to stage an Ashes Test in 2009 will not have had their fears allayed.
The groundstaff, some of whom appeared to be children, were armed with equipment that would not have been considered hi-tech in Victorian times. It will be a travesty if Edgbaston ever loses out on a Test to this ground.
The groundstaff were blameless to prevent the abandonment, however. Although three overs were possible, persistent rain returned to scupper plans for a six-overs a side game.
The result leaves Warwickshire precariously placed as they bid to reach the quarter-finals. They now require wins from all three of their final games to guarantee their progression.
The fact that two of those games are against doomed Worcestershire is unlikely to make matters easier. The nature of local derbies, and the fact that both games will be played in front of full houses, suggests that Worcestershire will not be inclined to take it easy. They won both of last year's games by one run.
There are now more than 11,000 tickets pre-sold for tomorrow's game at Edgbaston, with several thousand club members also expected. The club have again stressed that those wishing to attend should contact the booking office today to reserve tickets.
