Following several days of heavy rain it was decided before play was due to start on the second day of this match that there could be no play and the match was abandoned without a ball being bowled. The outfield was very wet and much work needed to be done before any play would have been possible.
This would have been the first time that Derbyshire had played Cardiff, so it was disappointing that the match could not even be started and that several young Derbyshire players together with a few who were hoping to find form were denied their opportunity.
Derbyshire’s next match is at Derby against Gloucestershire in the championship, starting at 11am on Wednesday 2nd May.
