Lancashire Lightning v Glamorgan Dragons
Totesport League Div 1
April 17th 2005
With a poor weather forecast there was only a small crowd at Old Trafford to see the one day battle between last seasons top teams in the Totesport competition. No Flintoff for Lancashire but Muralitharan was due to play, so it was a bit disappointing to see Lancashire put in to bat as the Internet hour by hour weather forecast gave rain to fall at 4-0pm so there was little chance of seeing Muralitharan bowl. With Simon Jones getting plenty of lift runs were difficult to get and Lancashire found it tricky going in the cloudy conditions.
