Brigade's title hopes now handed over to Ardmore in last day drama

Brigade's hopes of clinching the Long's SuperValu Premiership today were washed away by yesterday's rain with an umpires' inspection of the Donemana ground yesterday afternoon confirming there is no chance of any play today.

The Premiership will now be decided at Ardmore next week when Donemana can clinch the title with victory although a huge Ardmore win could yet put the home side top on run-rate or, more likely, hand Brigade the trophy. Ironically if next week's match is also rained off then Brigade would definitely be crowned champions because of their head-to-head record against Coleraine.

Meanwhile, yesterday's rearranged Women's one-day international between Ireland and Bangladesh, switched from Bready to Instonians, was abandoned after 18 overs with the home side on 67-0.

The teams will attempt to play the second ODI today, once again at Shaw's Bridge (10.30am).
