Worcestershire Royals's final Clydesdale Bank 40 match of the season against Lancashire Lightning at New Road was abandoned due to rain at the half-way stage, with both teams having to settle for 1 point each.
The Royals won the toss and elected to field, with the match reduced to 38 overs per side, but the Lightning pair of Tom Smith and Stephen Moore gave the visitors a tremendous start with Smith reaching his half-century off just 24 balls, with 6 fours and 4 sixes, during the 8th over when Nick Harrison went for 30 runs.
Then Smith took another 20 balls to get to his hundred off 44 balls, with 8 fours and 10 sixes, which became the joint-fifth fastest hundred in the history of List A cricket, before he was bowled by Jack Shantry (1-80 off 8 overs) for 106 off 46 balls, with the score on 150-1 after 15 overs.
Moore accelerated once Smith was dismissed and he soon went to his 50 off 51 balls, with 6 fours, before the rain took the players off the field after 25 overs, with the score on 212-1. After a delay of 25 minutes play resumed, with the match reduced to 37 overs per side, and the Lightning continued to attack as Steven Croft got to his 50 off 41 balls, with 2 fours and 3 sixes, and 2 balls later Moore reached his hundred off 96 balls, with 9 fours and 2 sixes.
Then in the 33rd over the Royals got their second wicket when Moore hit a Harrison full-toss straight to Brett D'Oliveira at deep mid-wicket for 113 off 105 balls, with 11 fours and 2 sixes, with the score on 292-2.
Croft was out for 67 off 52 balls, with 2 fours and 4 sixes, by hitting D'Oliveira (1-37 off 8 overs) straight to Phil Hughes at long-on and then Paul Horton was stumped by Ben Cox off Harrison (2-83 off 7 overs) for 11, with Karl Brown unbeaten on 17, as the Lightning ended up on 324-4 off 37 overs.
Then the rain started to set in just after 4:30pm and the umpires, Peter Willey and Neil Bainton, abandoned the match at 5:50pm.
