WOKINGHAM CC skipper Dan Reddyhough admits the weather-enforced break might have arrived at a good time for his team, even if it did wash away two home matches.
The unseasonal wet weather accounted for Wokingham's clash against rivals Finchampstead last weekend just as it did their fixture with Kew a fortnight ago.
So with over half of the Thames Valley Division One season completed, the Oaks have only played three league games at their new Sindlesham ground.
The most recent of those was a 34-run loss to Beaconsfield on June 26 - Wokingham's first defeat of the season.
And although they followed that up with a four-wicket win at Henley 2nds, the visitors were at one point 74-6 in their chase - a point not lost on Reddyhough.
"It's frustrating at the moment because everybody wants to play cricket, but it's also a chance to start again, which might not be a bad thing looking at our last few games," he told the News.
