Hampshire Day 2 abandoned and Second XI news

Constant rain has continued to thwart the start of Derbyshire's match against Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl and with little sign of improvement, the umpires made the decision shortly after 2:30pm to abandon play for the second consecutive day without a ball being bowled.

The LV=County Championship match was due to begin yestersday, only for the weather to prevent a ball being bowled as the visitors look to cement their position at the top of the Division Two table.

Both teams will try again tomorrow with the weather outlook a lot more positive.


Derbyshire 12-man squad in full: Wayne Madsen (Captain), Paul Borrington, Martin Guptill, Wes Durston, Dan Redfern, Ross Whiteley, David Wainwright, Jonathan Clare, Tom Poynton (Wicketkeeper), Tim Groenewald, Tony Palladino and Mark Footitt.

Meanwhile at Belper, a rain-affected day saw Derbyshire 2nd XI close 94-7 against their Durham counterparts, having won the toss and elected to bat first.

In difficult conditions, the hosts had reached 90-7 at Lunch with Garry Park (21) and Chesney Hughes (19) the main contributors.

The Derbyshire score had progressed only to 94-7 post Lunch before rain curtailed play for the day with further rain ensuring no play before Tea on day two, with any play on the day looking unlikely.
