Tasmania walked off the field in Canberra left sharing the points in a disappointing end on Monday to its second 50-over clash of the under-18 national championships.

Rain interruptions that constantly forced players on and off Kingston Oval stifled any chance of a result.

Tasmania had elected to bat first, but its innings was later reduced to 25 overs against a Cricket Australia XI.

Riverside batter Emma Manix-Geeves had reached an unbeaten 25 off 39 balls in her side’s 2-79 off 25 overs.

In-form South Launceston all-rounder Courtney Webb earlier could only muster 11 off 20 balls.

The Carlton AFLW recruit was coming off a run-a-ball 48 and 4-24 the day before against Western Australia.

Opening quick Sophie Parkin struck in her second over, the Riverside captain removing the transient Queenslander Charli Knott for just four of seven balls.

But in just the fourth over of the reduced match, the poor weather set in at 1-19 for a drawn match.
