Wanderers maintain advantage despite rain being the winner
CARMARTHEN Wanderers maintained their lead at the top of the Thomas Carroll South Wales Cricket Association after claiming seven points from their abandoned home game against Llanelli.
The visitors invited the home side to bat and claimed the prize wicket of the association's leading run scorer Dan Jones in the third over.
The Wanderers made steady progress with Owain Davies (45) again in the runs. But the Wanderers innings was badly affected by the rain with the players leaving the field on four occasions which reduced the game to 36 overs.
Gareth Thomas returned to the side and batted with authority, scoring a quickfire 56 not out which pushed the total onto 147-4 when the umpires called time due to a further heavy rain shower.

With an early tea taken while the rain continued to fall, the Wanderers had set a very competitive total on a difficult batting wicket.
The umpires decided at 6pm that conditions were too dangerous to continue and the game was abandoned with the players not returning to the field after tea.
The game was sponsored by Davies and Evans builders.
