Chatteris are still searching for their first win of the season as frustration loomed large in their latest league clash.
Max Kelly’s side saw their CCA Senior League Division One game at City of Ely abandoned after the hosts scored 178-5 inside 38 overs during a rain-affected contest on Saturday.
It means Chatteris, who lost at Cambridge NCI before their match with Royston was cancelled, will look to earn their first league success at home to Cambourne on May 22, 1pm.
There was luck for Chatteris 2nds, who beat Cherry Hinton by 157 runs in Division Three North.
Oli Bailey top scored with an unbeaten 85 to leave the hosts on 207-3, before bowling the visitors out for 50.
