RAIN denied Wembley the chance of beating joint County League Division Two leaders Shepherds Bush on Saturday.
The home side won the toss and put Wembley in to bat first and they scored 171 all out in 50 overs.
But the rain then prevented Bush from starting their reply and the match was eventually abandoned, both sides receiving a point apiece.
As a result, Wembley and Bush remain joint top with 11 points, but Harrow - the side beaten by Wembley last week - are just a point away, having moved up to third place with their win over North Middlesex, who drop to fourth.
Wembley will be looking to maintain their useful start to the new campaign when they entertain mid-table Acton at Vale Farm this Saturday. The match starts at 1pm.
George Jurianz was in good form for Wembley 2nds, hitting 54 in their 199 for seven against Shepherds Bush, who made the required runs in their reply for the loss of just five wickets, Sidhu (47) and Dyment (34 not out) leading the way.
Patel (2-24 in 10 overs) was the pick of the Wembley bowlers.
Replying to a South Hampstead total of 109 all out, Wembley 3rds made the required runs for the loss of only four wickets in just 20.4 overs.
