Manchester Originals 138-5 (80 balls): Buttler 62 (36); Bopara 2-13Match abandoned; one point eachScorecard.. TableThe Hundred fixture between Manchester Originals and London Spirit in the men’s competition was abandoned because of rain at Old Trafford. The match had been reduced to 90 balls a side after an earlier delay before being abandoned 80 balls into the Originals’ innings. England white-ball captain Jos Buttler smashed 62 from 36 balls as Originals reached 135-8.Ravi Bopara took 2-13 for Spirit, whose fielders struggled with wet conditions.Buttler smashed five sixes and three fours in his knock and was supported by Phil Salt’s 21 from just nine balls, which looked to be setting a solid platform for the Originals before Spirit’s bowlers fought back, led by Bopara, who bowled Buttler with a canny slower ball. England Test opener Zak Crawley was making his first appearance of the competition for Spirit.The umpires kept the players out through persistent rain in the hope that it would clear, but several Spirit fielders were visibly unhappy with the conditions.The teams take one point each from the result.Both teams are still searching for their first win in the competition, having lost their opening encounters to Welsh Fire and Oval Invincibles respectively.Earlier, both games in the women’s competition were also abandoned because of the weather.You can watch Hundred matches on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer every Wednesday and Saturday throughout the competition, alongside both finals on Sunday, 27 August.
