RAIN prevented Suffolk from pulling off a possible victory over Bedfordshire at Exning in their latest Under 17 fixture.

Ziaf Kulasi (104) and Josh Davey (76) added 168 in 44 overs before Davey departed. Kulasi fell at 240 and for a time the Bedfordshire bowlers regained control. However Luke Turner and Alex Gooding saw Suffolk through to close of play at 311 for six off 98 overs, having made up most of the time lost to rain.

Suffolk batted on to complete 120 overs despite losing Turner (37) at 338, as Gooding completed his fifty with good support from Tom Whiteman (36 not out) before declaring at 409 for 7 wkts.

Bedfordshire lost an early wicket but maintained a healthy scoring rate of four an over. However, the loss of two wickets quickly and a third shortly before tea slowed the rate considerably.
