No play was possible on the third day at Wantage Road meaning Northamptonshire opener Ben Duckett was made to wait for his chance to reach a triple century against Sussex.

Rain seeped under the covers following heavy overnight rain leaving several very damp areas of the outfield, including the bowler’s run up at the Wantage Road end.

The umpires gave the ground every chance to dry out but with temperatures remaining cool and with little wind or sunshine, there was no improvement throughout the afternoon and play was called off shortly before 4pm.

That means Duckett remains on 282 not out and Northants 481 for seven heading into the fourth day.
