Silverstone first team hosted Evenley on Saturday 25th July and the game had to be abandoned because of the rain.
Evenley batted first and Ben Patterson took the initiative and went on the attack with the bat. After the first break for rain, play resumed but the match was stopped after 25 overs with the visitors on 137-5. Patterson was out for 47 as Ryan Knight took 4 wickets for 23 runs and Sean Stokes 1 wicket for 28 runs.
