Heavy rain interrupted Heaton’s reply after 15.3 overs with the visitors slightly ahead on the run rate.

Spen players and officials did a great job in mopping up before the match resumed but a further deluge saw the game abandoned with Heaton 120-2 from 28.2 overs, as Imran Dawood (56) top scored to see the Bennett Lane into the last four.
