With a desperate need for rainfall in the Eastern Cape and Grahamstown in particular, nobody is seriously going to complain.

"The 1st XI, lost their 3rd fixture of the year, though when all play was abandoned against St Andrews College," said Graeme College's Gregg van Molendorff.

"The 2nd XI played against the Reddam 1st XI on Friday, and were also happy it rained. Reddam had scored 176. Graeme were in early trouble losing 3 wickets in the first over. The rain came down at 20/5 with Reddam very much in control.
