After incessant rain overnight, a saturated outfield meant play was unable to get under way at the scheduled start time of 11am with an early lunch being taken at midday.

And with the forecast showing little chance of an afternoon improvement, umpires Trevor Jesty and Tim Robinson called proceedings off during the lunch interval.

There is better weather predicted for Saturday, the fourth and final day, and should play resume, the visitors’ first innings will continue with them well placed on 195-4.
