WHILST holiday makers will be cursing the weather today, Cornwall's cricketers will be quite happy to see the rain fall all day.

In their top-of-the-table Unicorns Championship clash with Berkshire at Grampound Road, they are in deep trouble.

Yesterday, after electing to bat, they were skittled for 92 all out in 37.5 overs as Tom Nugent produced a splendid spell of quick bowling, taking six for 26 in 15 overs.

By contrast, Berkshire's reply sailed along to 325-6, at which point they declared having secured maximum batting points.

Waqas Hussain hit a brilliant 123 which contained no fewer than 25 fours.

There was still time for Cornwall to face a tricky half hour at the end of the day - and still time for Nugent to pick up his seventh wicket of the day when he removed skipper Matt Robins in the same manner as he had earlier, caught in slip by S Davidson.

Cornwall were reeling at eight for one at the close, but a dismal forecast today and tomorrow may just save them. There has been no play so far today.
