Day One of Derbyshire’s Specsavers County Championship match against Worcestershire at Derby was abandoned without a ball bowled due to persistent heavy rain.

An early lunch at 12.30pm was called as early as 9.30am, before a series of inspections after the lunch interval that eventually forced the umpires to abandon play for the day.

The weather had managed to eventually hold off on Friday for the NatWest T20 Blast clash against Birmingham Bears, but heavy rain throughout Sunday evening into Monday morning had a detrimental effect on the pitch.

Weather permitting, the fixture will commence tomorrow morning at 11am.

Derbyshire are in action on Friday evening in the NatWest Twenty20 Blast against local rivals Notts Outlaws and, with the weather set to pick up as the week goes on, will be hopeful of a full evening’s play.
