Glamorgan's hopes of staying in touch with the Clydesdale Bank 40 Group C leaders took a big blow on Sunday when their clash with the Unicorns at the SWALEC Stadium was ruined by rain.

After being put in to bat by the visitors, Glamorgan opener Gareth Rees was trapped lbw by Neil Saker with the second ball of the game while Jim Allenby was caught behind for 16.

Captain Alviro Petersen and Stewart Walters settled the nerves and they reached 45 for two from 11.1 overs before the heavens opened up for a third time. The rain failed to abate and umpires Mark Benson and Neil Mallender were forced to abandon the match shortly before 5.30pm.

The result sees Glamorgan slip four points behind table-toppers Somerset and Essex while the Unicorns remain rooted to the bottom of the log after six of their seven games.
