Instonians seamer James Magee's five wicket haul was in vain after torrential rain washed out their T20 clash with Waringstown between innings at The Lawn.

Magee's 5 for 14 were his best figures for the Shaw's Bridge side since his debut in 2011, but alas, to no avail as a deluge swamped the ground.

Morgan Topping (29) and Adam Dennison (25) shared an opening stand of 57, and he went on to account for Graham Hume (23), Kyle McCallan and Matthew Daly.

Lee Nelson also chipped in with 22 as the home side posted 139 for 7, with Ben Rose and James Lambert the other wicket takers.
